Skipping Meals: A Bad Idea

You could end up overeating

(HealthDayNews) -- If you're trying to cut your calorie intake by skipping meals, you could end up gaining weight instead.

According to George Washington University, people who skip meals, especially breakfast, are more likely to overeat later in the day. That's because when you skip meals, you upset your body's natural cycle of sleep, wakefulness and hunger.

So in trying to right itself, your system overcompensates and you may end up eating from mid-afternoon until bedtime.
