It is the first meal of the day. It will BREAK the FAST of the night. About ten hours went without any food, but if you slept your body stayed in activity. While you were at rest, your organs burnt 500 to 600 kilocalories. You need those back to start a new day in a good shape.

Breakfast has always been said to be the most important meal of the day, with those who skip the meal more likely to have an unhealthy lifestyle.

When you are in a rush and trying to get out the door in the morning, breakfast may be the last thing on your mind. No matter how much time you have, making time for breakfast should be a priority. Not only is breakfast a nutritious way to begin the day, but it offers numerous benefits to your health and body but there are just as many disadvantages that occur when you skip the most important meal of the day.

Lack of Energy

You need to eat breakfast in the morning because breakfast helps restore glucose to your blood, giving you energy to be productive during your day. Because you are not eating during the night while you sleep, your body's glucose levels drop. Glucose is the fuel your cells need to produce energy. When you eat breakfast, or any meal, your body breaks down the food into glucose molecules. These simple sugars are then absorbed from your intestines into your bloodstream, where they travel to your body's cells to produce energy. Without this glucose, you may feel tired.

Weight Gain and Store more Fat

If you skip breakfast while trying to cut calories and lose weight, you may actually be setting your weight loss back. According to the Mayo Clinic, breakfast helps reduce your appetite later on in the day. This helps you avoid binge eating or overeating later. Furthermore, not eating until lunch prolongs that period before you break the fast from your overnight slumber. This can cause your body's insulin levels and response to increase, leading your body to store more fat.

Your Hunger Increases

One of the reasons why those who eat breakfast are better able to maintain their weight is because they stave off hunger by eating a healthy breakfast. When you skip breakfast, your stomach sends signals to your brain that it is empty, and you begin to experience hunger pangs. The longer you wait, the more your hunger grows. If you've skipped breakfast, you are more likely to reach for unhealthy snack options, such as convenience foods high in fat and sugar -- like a candy bar from a vending machine, a doughnut or a large bagel. Over time, this can contribute to weight gain.

Your Metabolism Drops

Your body's metabolism is the rate at which you burn calories for daily life functions. The faster your metabolism, the faster you burn off foods you eat, which helps you maintain a healthy weight. Think of your metabolism like stoking a fire. If you constantly stoke the fire, you will be consistently warm. If you let the fire run out and re-light it, you will experience temperature fluctuations. The same is true for your metabolism. If you keep it burning by eating breakfast, you will burn more calories all day instead of experiencing fluctuations in metabolism that reduce your body's ability to burn calories

Body Fat Goes Up

What's wrong is your mostly losing water as well as some muscle. Muscle is much easier for your body to break down; which is why your losing weight. If you want to lose fat you should be eating 6 smaller meals a day. If you don't eat enough, your body goes into starvation mode and it will be even harder to lose fat.

This is why scales are so misleading. Your body fat % is most likely going up even though your weight is going down
