No breakfast plan?

Recommended Posts

Good morning everyone, I was wondering what you guys think of this " No breakfast plan." If you google this you will find it. I just wanted to know if anyone is utilizing this technique for acne, has any experience or any thoughts, as it is a form of a 'mini-fast.' Thanks guys, hope you all have wonderful days, or nights depending on where you are on the globe :)

Every day I don't eat for the first two or three houes after I wake. I guess mini-fasting and detox plays a small part, but it's more due to the fact that I'm just not hungry and I see no point in eating when I'm not hungry. So instead I have lemon juice, white tea / herbal teas, fresh raw veggie juice like dandelion, and spirulina / maca powder stirred into water. These are all great things to take on an empty stomach too, that's when they're most potent (besides the lemon water). But yeah, if you have to wake up and go to work and have no oppurtunity to eat till lunch, I don't know about skipping breakfast every day. But if you're like me and you're a student who's off for the summer and my work hours are in the evening, well go for it if it suits you :) Some people have said it helps them, honestly I don't notice that much of a difference but again, I'm just not hungry when I wake up.

Why You Shouldn't Skip Breakfast

A few years back, I read that one of the tricks Japanese sumo wrestlers use to gain weight is to not eat breakfast so that by lunchtime they are hungry enough to finish three to four huge servings (a two to three hour siesta then follows). Apparently, this no-breakfast rule is part of the traditional training of a sumo wrestler. This tip must work because, let's face it, they are highly successful at gaining weight.

All joking aside, research shows that non-breakfast eaters are more likely to be overweight than breakfast eaters are. In fact, weight loss experts like Kelly Brownell, author of The Learn Program for Weight Control, say that one characteristic common to overweight people is that they seldom eat breakfast.

Not eating breakfast leads to overeating later in the day.

According to nutritionists, many people think they will lose weight by skipping breakfast because they are cutting out a large amount of calories. In reality, not eating breakfast actually backfires on their weight loss efforts since they are so hungry by the time lunch comes around that they lose all semblance of self-control and eat everything in sight - just like the sumo wrestlers!

Elizabeth Somer, registered dietician and author of "Food & Mood: The Complete Guide to Eating Well and Feeling Your Best" says that breakfast helps you maintain a steady blood sugar and energy level so people who eat breakfast are less likely to overeat later in the day.

John Foreyt, Ph.D., and Ken Goodrick, Ph.D., developers of the Living Without Dieting Program say that regular meals help overweight individuals balance their blood sugar levels and hunger throughout the day. They notice that many overweight clients have developed a habit of overeating in the evening and then undereating in the morning. This lack of food in the morning sets them up to be overly hungry at night, making them likely to repeat the cycle.

Joy Bauer, author of "Idiot's Guide to Eating Smart" states that eating breakfast helps maintain your weight by regulating your appetite all through the day. She says breakfast helps you eat moderately during lunch and dinner.

Skipping breakfast can lower metabolism.

Skipping breakfast, according to Dr. Wayne Callaway, obesity specialist at George Washington University, can not only trigger overeating later in the day but can also cause a drop in metabolism. He found that people who skip breakfast have a five-percent lower metabolism than those who don't skip breakfast. He explains that eating (digesting and absorbing the food) raises metabolism so skipping meals can lower the metabolic rate slightly.

Skipping breakfast affects physical and mental performance.

Clinical and sports nutritionist Sanirose Orbeta mentions in her article "Power Breakfast" (Food Magazine) that the morning meal breaks a fast (that's why it's called "breakfast") that usually lasts from eight to12 hours. She says that by this time, your body's supply of blood sugar or glucose has dropped to a low point. Your body needs food to keep your energy levels high.

Orbeta goes on to mention that studies show people perform better physically and mentally in the morning hours if they eat breakfast. She says that students who skip breakfast don't perform well in school. Breakfast is supposed to provide us with the energy and nutrients to last until lunchtime. Therefore, she together with many other nutritionists say, "Don't skip breakfast!"

Eat breakfast even if you aren't hungry.

Orbeta says that no matter what your morning schedule is like, take time for some breakfast. She says to eat even if you don't have the appetite because you will see and feel the difference later in the day. Other nutritionists agree with her.

Lawrence Cheskin, head of the Weight Management Center at Johns Hopkins School of Medicine, says that even if you aren't much of a breakfast eater, you should eat at least a small bowl of cereal and a glass of juice because this will help curb the desire to overeat later.

Lisa Druxman, creator of the L.E.A.N. (Learning Eating Awareness and Nutrition) Program usually counsels clients to eat only when they are hungry because she says that many people gain weight from eating for other reasons aside from hunger (for example, boredom or stress). However, she says there is one exception to this no-eating-unless-hungry rule and that exception is breakfast. It has been found time and time again, she stresses, that breakfast jump-starts metabolism and actually helps people lose weight.

Breakfast ideas.

Due to the morning rush, you may not have the luxury to sit down to eat at leisure but, Orbeta says, you still need and deserve a good breakfast to help you perform better at work or at school. She gives some ideas for quick and easy breakfasts.

* Arroz caldo.

* Champorado.

* Omelets with mushrooms, potatoes, and lean ham. If you have high cholesterol, use only the egg whites (the cholesterol is found in the yolk). Orbeta says you can chop everything up the night before to save time.

* Reheated lunch or dinner leftovers.

* Fresh fruit salad. Again, to save time you can chop up the fruits at night.

* Dried fruits like raisins.

* Oatmeal with sliced fruits.

* Low-fat yogurt mixed with fruit.

None of that has to do with acne, I know. But it's basically why you shouldn't skip breakfast. I agree with it and if you dont agree with that go eat a pillow (dont ask). I just dont want to get fat >_>

edit: I have no idea what "arroz caldo" or "champorado" are

That sounds right bc not eating breakfast will make you so hungary come lunch time you will eat even more. So buy eatign a filling breakfast you will eat less come lunch time .. actually my gym teacher said you should eat a big breakfast, medium lunch and small dinner bc .. during the day si when u do ur work and running around come night time what will u do? Eat a huge dinner then probobly relax and go to bed .. soo all those calories get stored rather then used up. I use to think that wayy to about not eating breakfast .. althought with me i began starving myself :( yes shame on me i know .. but now that i gained weight and eat healthier .. i haven't gotten sick .. ususally i get sick all throughotu witner its like oen big cold .. now that i take vitamins and eat much betetr i got sick once this winter and it last not even a week .. pretty sweet huh lol.

the article you gave us basically says "dont eat breakfast even if you are hungry"

im not looking to start a huge argument here, but I get dizzy and can't function if I dont eat breakfast.

...And i'm not sure if that no-breakfast plan will work that well for diabetic people either :/

my metabolism is reallllllly really fast. just ask my friends, they get super jealous because I can eat a whole bag of tremendously buttery popcorn and not gain an ounce

so, it basically boils down to 2 choices.

a)would you rather be fat, or:

b)would you rather have acne
