Breakfast is a main effective component in a safe dietary lifestyle. Obesity is a social and clinical problem of the present century that is highly prevalent among different societies. The worldwide obesity rate has more than doubled since 1980. Many studies showed that the diet of obese people is insufficient. It is also observed that many obese and overweight people skip breakfast or do not pay enough attention to eating a complete meal in the breakfast.  Based on the literature, obese people eat less breakfast, but those who eat breakfast almost every day usually receive enough micronutrients and provide a smaller percentage of their daily energy from fats . There is a scarcity of information regarding the relationship between breakfast consumption and obesity in Iran.
