Okay, some studies say that mealtime skipping is associated to weight gain with some several mechanisms. Here they are :
1. Some researches indicate that breakfast skipping can potentially reduce skipper's energy expenditure. The skippers were found to have lower physical activity levels than those who dont skip mealtime especially breakfast. Hey, losing weight is not all about to cut your caloric input, but also to improve your energy expenditure (caloric output) and that will happen if you are physically active :)
2. Also, remember that overhunger always leads to overeating. Your body compensate the long period of hunger (not eating while you sleep at night + breakfast skipping) by eating alot, humm..can also be eating a lot of snacks. If you can't choose your types of snack well, it usually results to surge of energy consumption because some snacks contain high-dense of calorie but low in fibre. FYI, foods containing high fibre can help you reducing your caloric input because those type of foods usually contain low caloric but have bulky effect to your stomach...so you can feel full quickly without adding much more caloric to your body :)
Haha, this is my experience in skipping my lunch time with my friend. Usually, ppl in my country have lunch @ around 12am-1 pm. One day, we skipped it and ate @3 at last. with really high energy dense snacks haha
|(plus sweet potato chips at the end...) Seriously, these kinds of food have three times caloric higher than our usual foods,|
but this is what we call pleasure...sometimes we can do it, but just dont do it everyday, haha...
