Breakfast is supposed to give your brain a boost, kick your metabolism into gear, and even help you drop weight. When put that way, breakfast sounds pretty damn good, and for some people that's absolutely the case. But this is the real world, and what works for one person doesn’t always work for another.
Why you might want to skip breakfast and give fasting a try
Intermittent fasting, which in plain old English could just be called "skipping breakfast," is one of the simplest, most effective tools there is for fat loss, hunger control, and mental alertness.
Fasting helps your body use stored fuel more efficiently. When you go without food, your body needs something to burn, and most people have thousands upon thousands of calories' worth of stored energy (commonly referred to as the muffin top) just waiting to be used.
