If you don't like to eat breakfast or you don't take the time to eat breakfast, you could be struggling with weight loss issues, brain fog, no energy, slow metabolism to name a few.
Listed are some reasons why skipping breakfast is NOT a great idea~~~
1. Breakfast is a literal word. With your morning meal you are "breaking" an 8-12 hour "fast" in which you body hasn't received nutrition for an extended period of time. It's a necessity during any weight loss program (with rare exception), not an option.
2. Breakfast is the meal that gets your metabolism going each day. If you're repeatedly waiting until lunch to eat, you're simply training your metabolism to remain slow for an extended portion of the day.
3. Breakfast if THE time to consume carbohydrates. Carbohydrate tolerance and insulin sensitivity are highest at breakfast. The absolute best time of the day to eat carbs (and get away with it) is in the morning.
4. Breakfast is energy for the day. You literally have ALL day to burn the calories that you eat at breakfast. It's very unlikely, unless you are making very poor food choices and eating highly excessive amounts of calories, that calories eaten during the first meal of the day will lead to appreciable fat storage.
Simply put, breakfast should be the biggest, not the smallest (or skipped) meal of the day, and if you're not consuming it on a regular basis, you really need to start.
