Many of us know that skipping breakfast is bad already, but what exactly are the outcomes of skipping breakfast on a regular basis?

I’m sure we’ve heard a lot through our lifetime about how breakfast is the most important meal of the day and that we should never skip it, however, do we really know what the long term possibilities of skipping breakfast are? (This will blow your mind)

  • Increase women’s chance of developing type 2 diabetes
  • Increase the chance of coronary heart disease. Long periods of fasting can lead to an increase in blog pressure, concentrations of insulin, fatty acids, triglycerides and LDL-cholesterol as well as decrease the blood concentration of HDL-cholesterol
  • Memory. If you’re working or studying, eating a healthy breakfast is a must for you to give your 100% to whatever tasks you’re given during the day!
  • Increase your cholesterol levels
  • Hunger. No one likes the feeling of hunger right?
  • Weight loss. Yes! Contrary to popular beliefs that skipping breakfast will help you lose weight, this is not true! It has been proven that the people who eat breakfast as their biggest meal of the day was able to lose 17.8 pounds in 3 months compared to those that eat dinner as their largest meal losing 7.3 pounds in the same period of time.

This image demonstrates that portions of food of someone that eats breakfast versus someone that doesn’t. 6.8% more food is eaten during the day! Now imagine how much food you’re eating a year if you’re someone that never eats breakfast…

So tell us readers, are you someone that skips breakfast on a daily basis? If so, what are you most worried about in regards to your health when you skip breakfast now?

  1. I frequently skip breakfast – a habit which I have only picked up in the last few years (coincidentally aligning with my time at uni). I often find that I feel a bit sick, or a little funny in the stomach after eating in the morning, so I usually wait until I get to uni to eat brunch. Does brunch have the same benefits as breakfast?
