What Happens To Your Body When You Don't Eat Breakfast?
You can't skip
breakfast. It's the first meal you eat in the day, no matter when it is.
If you're wondering what happens if you don't eat soon after awaking, the answer is usually not much. For some people it causes overeating behavior later in the day, and other people get some benefits in things like energy and concentration
. But there's nothing particularly important in general about what time you eat or how many meals you take in a day.
‘Breakfast’ is the first meal of your day, irrespective
of what time you have it!
But, speaking from a conventional
point of view, usually people associate having a meal between 7am to 10am as their breakfast.
So, in those terms I haven't had my breakfast for past many years now (I think 4+ now).
If you have heard about the concept of Intermittent
Fasting which suggests eating in a limited window of time. IF can be done in various way.
I prefer to eat between 12pm to 8pm. Then I typically fast from 8pm until 12pm the next day.
The only thing that I do have during the fasting period is:
In a recent survey by the National Weight Control Registry, people who ate breakfast were more successful with long-term weight loss than those who regularly skipped the first meal of the day.
Taking breakfast helps your metabolism and can help prevent overeating later on. Additionally, a healthy first meal has been linked to boosted brainpower and mental performance throughout the day.
If you don't eat breakfast you'll experience body weakness. If you keep skipping the former then there's no point in having a heavy lunch you gotta eat something after waking up to avoid weakness
P.S: I had been skipping breakfast for like 2 years I experienced body weakness and some sharp pain in heart periodically.
