Why you shouldn’t skip meals, especially Breakfast (Top Tips Mini Series)


Hey there my Flawsome Friend,

Hope you’re well and having a good day?

Living a healthy lifestyle is not about strict diet limitations, trying to be unrealistically thin or depriving yourself of the foods you love. For me, it’s all about feeling great, having more energy, improving my outlook on life and stabilising my mood.

There is some very overwhelming and conflicting diet advice out there, don’t be discouraged, you’re not alone.

Let me help you cut thought all this confusion and learn how to create a healthier lifestyle that is good for mind and body.

Whether your goal is to lose weight, gain weight, build muscle, become fitter, feel better, feel stronger, have more energy, check out my tips to help achieve a healthier improved you.


Continuing on with my mini series, Top Tips to a Healthier Lifestyle, today we are going to talk about Not Skipping Meals to lose weight.

**Please, Don’t skip meals/starve yourself/skip breakfast.**

**Remember, Breakfast is the most important meal of the day.**

If you don’t eat right when you first wake up, your body senses starvation and slows your metabolism down to compensate.

Then when presented with food later on in the day, it ravenous and wants to pack the food in, which can lead to binging or eating unhealthy foods, which will slow the metabolism and cause weight gain.

Think you’re too busy for breakfast?

  • Try a green smoothie. Add some avocado/banana or greek yogurt for a creamier texture.
  • Starting each morning with a lemon water is also fantastic for you. Boil some water, slice some lemon and add to the hot water and enjoy. This is fantastic for clearer skin, stronger, shinier hair and also aids digestion. It’s also cheap, natural and effective. Don’t forget to go for the unwaxed lemons, as they have less chemicals and are easier to wash before use.

  1. Very interesting. I rarely eat breakfast and been that way for years. I don’t avoid it to try to lose weight though. I find my stomach is extremely sensitive in the morning and if I eat right away I get physically sick, been that way since I was a kid. It’s weird but I’ve learned to work with it by eating something small a while later.

    1. It’s all about making it work for you. I must admit I don’t always want to each a big breakfast, so that’s where I find smoothies awesome for getting the nutrients in without being too heavy or rich. Hope you’re having a great day 🙂
