    Skipping breakfast primes the brain to seek out fat

    BBC News - Skipping breakfast primes the brain to seek out fat

    I find this bizarre - I've been missing breakfast for nearly a year now, I don't feel hungry until late afternoon and have no cravings for specific food... Although to be fair I'm fat adjusted now, maybe the test subjects were sugar burners?

    I'm not really surprised that people who are probably used to eating breakfast find high calorie foods more attractive when they skip breakfast, compared to when they've just eaten a 730 calorie breakfast.

    Their conclusions are a bit odd though - not eating a 730 calorie breakfast means you eat 20% more at lunch, therefore make sure you eat breakfast if you want to lose weight??

    For those who don't routinely eat more than 3650 calories at lunch, skipping that breakfast leads to fewer calories consumed overall. My conclusion - skipping meals / intermittent fasting is a very effective way of losing weight, as you only compensate slightly for missed meals.
