Story at-a-glance

  • Some of the media and health “experts” claim that the most common breakfast mistakes include eating too little protein, fiber and fat; not eating enough food; and eating too late in the morning
  • However, compelling emerging research suggests skipping breakfast altogether may be more beneficial for you, and may help reduce your hunger

  • Fat is far more satiating than carbs, so if you have cut down on sugar yet still feel ravenous, this is a sign that you haven’t replaced the carbs with sufficient amounts of high quality fats
  • Eating first thing in the morning coincides with your circadian cortisol peak, which leads to a rapid and large insulin release and a corresponding rapid drop in your blood sugar levels. Omitting breakfast could make it easier for you to control food cravings and hunger throughout the day
