Hi Rita! Breakfast is the most important meal of the day! It starts up your body after 7-8 hours of no food & provides you with energy for the rest of the day. If you dont take breakfast, you will not have enough energy , concentration levels will be low & you will not be able to go about your daily activities with vigour. Also the big news is that you are putting your body into starvation mode & the next meal you eat, gets stored as fat. Infact the lightest meal of the day should be dinner since activity is limited post dinner & the body will quickly use up the calories that come from the light dinner preventing fat storage. So start eating a big nutritious breakfast!

Just found this page. I'm going against the grain here. First, I'm a REAL rebel, going against the grain in that I lost 30 pounds 7 years ago, and have kept that weight off. I'm a rare weight-loss success-story. So how DARE I cite my method that's so iconoclastic? Well, here goes: I don't eat breakfast, I don't eat lunch, and I DON'T swallow claims saying this is unhealthful. WHERE to start? Metabolism? One's "basal rate" of metabolism never stops, although it slows down when you sleep. Food can kick-start it - through "thermogenesis" - but so can a glass of water. Danger of ulcers? What study shows that correlation? None that I've seen. A study by Ruth Streigel-Moore at Wesleyan suggested skipping breakfast may lead to weight gain, but there were too many other variables, such as other lifestyle factors, so that it did not provide a correlation.

Nutritionalists who agree with me include Dr. Mark Mattson of the National Institute of Aging, Dr. David Levitsky of Cornell, and - from a ...more

Don't do it ever.

Skipping breakfast is a common strategy for losing weight, but not a smart one. Many people believe that they will lose weight if they skip meals, but that just isn't true; the body expects to be refueled a few times a day, starting with a healthy breakfast. It is the most important meal of the day it gets your metabolism started. Breakfast gives our body nutrition and substance. This is where our energy comes from. People who do not eat breakfast have considerably less energy than people who do. Did you know that hunger can cause mood swings and irritability? People who do eat breakfast tend to be much less irritable than those who do not.

Eating breakfast can help you to have a great day. Our bodies cannot run on empty until lunch time. When our bodies do not have proper nutrition they do not function to their fullest. We will not feel good if we do not eat breakfast.
