    This does not apply if you wake up at noon. I've been skipping breakfast everyday lately and eating really large meals late in the day. Will this be sustainable when ms 2 year starts?

    Not if you wake up at 7/8 and go to class. How will you concentrate without breakfast?

    P.S. Skipping meals is not the key to staying in shape/at healthy weight. Instead, eat smaller meals spread throughout the day.

    Eating only egg whites is dumb.

    The yolks have all the nutrition in them.

    My cholesterol is actually perfect, Poo Man.

    You do realize cholesterol the molecule that's found in egg yolks is not the same "cholesterol" thaf is carried in the serum, right? The "cholesterol" you're referring to are lipoproteins, of which only one component is cholesterol. And not all lipoproteins are created equal.

    skipping breakfast may put you at increased risk for gall stones.

    some suggest that if you must skip breakfast, at least drink a ton (half a liter) of water when you wake up, which can stimulate the gall bladder to release it's stuff.

    I never understood why bfast is the most important meal. Then again, I never eat breakfast foods for breakfast, ill easily eat hot dogs, steak or spaghetti and grilled chicken at 8am :p

    There are eating strategies, if you will, that promote eating only during specific windows of time throughout a day.....yes, every day. For example, give yourself an 8 hour window of time to eat your food for the whole day, and don't eat (i.e., fast) for the other 16 hours. For simplicity sake, many people who do this choose to use their sleeping hours as part of the fasting time, and then skip breakfast to reach their total fasting time. That's why I suggested the OP look into this.

    Example:

    12noon-8pm: eat

    8pm-12noon: don't eat

    Yeah I've been skipping breakfast a lot as well... I don't think its all that important. There really isn't much evidence for it, commercials to the contrary.

    that's my exact schedule right now actually. I eat almost anything I want in that window and I never seem to pass 3000 calories. And I exercise fasted.

    I've noticed that it's becoming easier to go through the mornings without hunger and I can't say I feel less sharp. I definitely don't have that "burst" that a cup of orange juice would give, but it's more sustainable. Only problem is when I eat at 12, I usually eat about 1000 calories and I just want to go to to sleep lol.

    So now I'm thinking about extending the period to about 6pm. So I'll just eat like all my calories in one meal, which will cause me to sleep, and I won't be hungry the next day til like afternoon/evening in which time i can get all my stuff done and not think about food all day

    I've been doing this lately and it's interesting. I wake up around 6am and usually get a little hungry around noon, but after that I'm good to go until the evening. I only run into problems when I decide to go to the gym in the afternoon as I have very little energy to do much. If I know I'm going to the gym I'll grab a Cliff bar or something similar so that I don't pass out.

    Give it a try and see what you think. I actually kinda like it.

    Read this.

    This guy goes through some background on IF and experiments on himself with varying protocols (alternate-day, 1 day a week, 2 days a week, leangains) to determine the best fit for his lifestyle.
