Skipping breakfast slows your body’s response to insulin. More insulin accumulates in your bloodstream. Your insulin sensitivity declines. And you accumulate, store and keep fat longer. Your weight goes up, and so does your LDL.
In a UK breakfast study, women ate more calories during the day if they had skipped breakfast—adding weight gain to their LDL add-on. And all of the insulin action above was recorded.
Brits skip breakfast an average of 113 times annually. You?
The moral is:
eat breakfast, even if you’re not hungry
You’ll lower your LDL, and avoid the trans fats that drop your HDL (healthy!) cholesterol too. Controlling LDL with food is easy. Learn more.
