Well, that’s just not true. That’s what my whole article is about. If you’re referring to studies on the “importance” of breakfast, those studies are often funded by food companies… “Buy my product and eat it every day within 30 minutes of waking up or your brain will be damaged!” Come on man, that’s ridiculous.
There are many factors that go into that kind of research too; like someone’s age, health, diet, etc. For example, kids should eat lots of healthy meals in order to grow properly, but as adults, we just don’t need that much food.
If you’re interested in brain health, as mentioned in the article:
“studies [of intermittent fasting] show improved cognitive function and reduced risk of diseases… including Alzheimer’s.”
There are many great books and resources (some linked in the article) that go into those details.
Unlike breakfast, with IF, there is no product to sell. No company or cash to skew the research. It’s just a natural eating pattern, how we evolved.
But hey, like I tell everyone, if you’re hungry in the morning and enjoy eating at that time, keep doing it, but don’t feel like you have to. Your brain will be fine.
