Skipping breakfast messes up your body’s rhythm of eating and fasting. When you wake up, the glucose body needs for muscle building and optimum brain function tend to be low. Breakfast serves to replenish it.
When your body doesn’t get that fuel from food, you’ll likely have less energy–and an increased tendency to overeat later in the day.
