Ah, someone agrees with something that I’ve said for a long time: if you’re trying to lose weight, don’t skip meals! “According to George Washington University, people who skip meals, especially breakfast, are more likely to overeat later in the day. That’s because when you skip meals, you upset your body’s natural cycle of sleep, wakefulness and hunger.”
I’ve learned from experience that regularly skipping meals can make it even harder to lose weight. For me personally, I end up getting so hungry that I overeat at the next meal. I do much better sticking with either three meals with snacks in between each, or, even better, five to six small meals spread throughout the day. Skipping meals: definitely not a good idea for me.
