Although I’ve talked about the topic of whether you should skip breakfast or not multiple times on the podcast I think it’s important to keep looking at this particular subject from multiple angles…
There are many people that could benefit from a longer intermittent fast, however, the people that are often forgotten about and may be harmed by it are almost always overlooked by most health experts…
Today, I’d like to share with you some really good scientific research that should enable you to look at the topic of skipping breakfast and exactly how it affects your metabolism…
Tune in to today’s #CabralConcept 2315 on whether or not skipping breakfast is hurting your metabolism – Enjoy the show and let me know what you thought in the comments!

Show Highlights & Big Takeaways:
1. Cost-Benefit Analysis
When deciding how long your intermittent fast should be it’s important to ask yourself why are you fasting for more than 12 hours in the first place. If you have a specific goal it could make complete sense but if not it’s important not to do something just because a lot of people seem to be doing it at the time…
Most people’s goal is to boost metabolism – not slow it. Interestingly, more and more research is showing that by chronically skipping breakfast you were actually slowing your metabolic rate over time.
It may make sense when you first think about it that by skipping breakfast you would be able to better regulate your blood sugar since it should cause a decrease, however, good scientific research is actually showing the opposite. The more stress you put on your body the more dysregulated your blood sugar becomes and fasting when overdone does become a large stressor on the body.
