Don’t Be Afraid To Skip Breakfast (2065 hits)

“Breakfast is the most important meal of the day.”

This is an all-too-common phrase that I secretly dislike, as the supposed benefits of eating this traditional morning meal have been totally misconstrued by both health experts and enthusiasts.

Skipping breakfast has repeatedly been said to increase the risk of unhealthy weight gain, obesity, and even type 2 diabetes. What most people don’t realize is that these claims are largely driven by misrepresentations of only a handful of studies linking breakfast skipping to negative side effects on blood glucose (sugar), insulin (the hormone responsible for lowering blood glucose), and metabolism (the rate at which you burn calories).

While these lines of reasoning may seem relatively straightforward and somewhat believable, this isn’t at all the case.

I can attest to this on both a personal and professional level.

For years, I’ve regularly incorporated a lifestyle of intermittent fasting, where I essentially skip breakfast on most days of the week. Instead, I’ll opt for a protein-packed, healthy, fat-rich snack for lunch (Greek yogurt with nuts) followed by a big, nutrient-dense dinner. Although I’m a pretty healthy gal who has maintained a vigorous cardio and weight lifting routine for nearly 20 years, I can honestly say that eating this way has greatly improved the way I look and feel.
