Hate to say it, but it probably has.
It’s not all mom’s fault though. Guys like me are equally responsible—so here I am trying to "right" my wrongs.
The intention being that...
None of this is completely illogical which is why it’s been such a widely prescribed nutrition strategy for decades.
If someone can actually keep the meals small and/or tracks their macros to ensure they are in a caloric deficit this works absolutely great. Unfortunately, it isn’t ideal for the overwhelming majority of people who are not bodybuilders or physique competitors that prep, weigh, pack, and time all 28-42 meals for the week.
So what does this have to do with eating or not eating breakfast?
Skipping breakfast may just be the solution!
Not because you’re eliminating the calories you would typically consume (though that is helpful) but because what happens from a physiological standpoint will influence how much you want to eat throughout the day.
It all comes down to our hormones.
Allow me to preface what we’re about to get into with this...there are no villainess hormones. I repeat, hormones are NOT the enemy.
Every hormone serves a purpose. It has a job to do. And it does that job based on OUR actions and decisions.
Make the wrong choice and they’ll work against you. Favorable or unfavorable—it’s your fault.
Ok, enough of the public service announcement. (You can thank me later, hormones.)
In part 2 (of 5) we’ll get into which hormones are responsible for weight management and eventually tie it all back to how skipping breakfast might be the best thing you can do for your body.
