You will have heard the old adage that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. But with intermittent fasting diets gaining popularity, is it really crucial to eat first thing in the morning or is skipping breakfast the secret to weight loss?
Kajsa Ernestam, in-house dietitian at the global health app Lifesum, separates fact from fiction when it comes to skipping breakfast.
Is it OK to skip breakfast?
In general, there are no benefits to skipping breakfast, or any meal throughout the day. If you are eating according to The 5:2 diet and The 16:8 diet, make sure you have a balanced food intake when you eat, and it is also good to consult with a dietitian or your GP if you wish to change your diet.
