Question : Can I still effectively lose weight if I skip breakfast?
Answer: You have probably heard if you skip breakfast it will slow down metabolic rate.
The facts are you have to consider your nutritional intake through out the entire day. If at the end of day you consumed over your maintenance or at your maintenance level of cals probably will not lose wt (exception being initial phase of low carb diet where carb depletion may result in water loss). I would generally recommend you consume breakfast, but it isnít a has to be.
In the short term starvation actually enhance metabolic rate. Nor-epinephrine actually increases.
