Is Skipping breakfast actually healthy?
Before we address the subject in detail, let’s bust a couple of myths that’s sure to toss all the pre-conceptions we have.
Myth 1 :
“Eating or skipping breakfast does not have any effect on the amount of calories you burn in a day”.
Yes, this is etched in stone. So yes, in turn, eating breakfast does not help you lose weight. Period,
Now that’s that, onto the next one.
Myth 2 :
“Higher-quality studies show that it makes no difference whether people eat or skip breakfast. Skipping breakfast makes you eat more at lunch, but not enough to compensate for the breakfast you skipped”
Again, here’s a shocker. This myth breaks the prerogative our age old ancient relatives, well-wishers, and parents have fed us all our lives. Yes, you do tend to eat a little more at lunch when you skip breakfast, but on balance, it does not increase your calorie intake.
Okay, so we get it. The narrative we’re going with goes on to prove that “Skipping breakfast is healthy”. Well not at all. We’re just trying to say that it does not have a detrimental effect on your weight gain, weight loss, eating habits (other meals of the day), or your calorie intake.
In the day and age we live in, “The breakfast hoodoo” is a must have conversation. Most of us don’t skip breakfast out of choice, we skip breakfast because we don’t have a choice. Owing to a live etched, lived, and celebrated on the fast-lane, we’d rather skip the mundanities and get to the proof without eating the pudding.
Whether you skip breakfast or not, your health and lifestyle, depends largely upon the consolidated calories you consume in a day, and the consolidated amount of calories you burn through exercise.
