Skipping meals..? Read this:
It is all too often a common practice for busy people to skip meals. However, this behavior comes at a price because skipping meals will tend to make a person eat more upon their next opportunity to eat. There is a concept called Thermic Effect of Eating, which is related to the amount of calories that a person burns through the digestion process. By skipping a meal, a person decreases the amount of calories that their body's will expend. In addition, by skipping a meal, blood glucose levels decrease and drive up hunger urges, this may cause a person to overeat.
By keeping your brain and body adequately nourished through sufficient caloric intake throughout the day, you can assure yourself of the necessary energy to enjoy your day!
