If you don't eat lunch, your body and brain will crash midday
"Overall, it's really important to not skip meals," said Jacqueline Aizen, a New York-based nutritionist. "When you skip meals your blood sugar tends to drop, when your blood sugar drops you'll experience fatigue, you'll feel sluggish... your brain needs glucose sugar to function well. When that doesn't happen, and your blood sugar dips, it drains your energy.
"Your brain is like a baby, if you don't feed it, if you don't nourish it, it's going to start crying."

"Eating a good, nutritious lunch is important to keep your body and mind focused and able to perform at a high level during the day, so it's very important.

Eating too late at night, especially before bed, can lead to a bevy of digestive and weight problems, which is never good,"
