Think about when you eat each meal. Breakfast starts your day off, lunch is right in the middle of the day, and dinner is near the end of the day. They're all about the same distance apart, except from dinner to breakfast. The time between those two meals is the longest period of time you go without eating. If you eat lunch at around six in the evening, then eat breakfast at six in the morning, you've just gone twelve hours without food. That lack of food means a lack of energy, putting your body and mind in an inactive state. An inactive mind and body is perfect for sleeping, but once you wake up, you need energy. Eating breakfast replenishes your energy, making your body and mind more active. Skipping breakfast, however, leaves your body in an inactive state until lunch and makes you feel tired and sluggish.

Not eating breakfast is also a bad way to try and lose weight. Your body's metabolism drops sharply while you sleep, because of the lack of energy. Until you eat again, your metabolism stays low, so skipping breakfast is more likely to cause you to gain weight, not lose it.

Last but not least, a sugary breakfast such as donuts can do more harm than good. The sugar will give you a quick boost in energy, but that energy disappears in a few hours, leaving your body and mind without any fuel until lunch.
