1. Skipping Breakfast
We call the morning meal “breakfast” because it “breaks the fast” you’ve been on since you went to bed. Breaking the overnight fast with a healthy meal could be important for longevity for more reasons than it provides nutrients to fuel your body. Eating breakfast is also essential to balance blood sugar. This is an important meal for people with type 2 diabetes, adrenal dysfunction, and other health conditions.
If you’re practicing intermittent fasting through breakfast for better health and weight loss, consult with your doctor about any risks. Your body might need breakfast in order to thrive.
