August 9/London/Hindustan Times -- Missing out on breakfast is unlikely to help shed extra pounds, says a new study.

The average content of a bowl of cereal with semi-skimmed milk is only 170 calories. Oat-based cereals can help lower cholesterol, and those containing wholewheat or bran can be a valuable source of dietary fiber, along with many other vitamins and minerals.
