Skipping breakfast is a priority for many people trying to shed their midsection fat. Skipping meals in an attempt to get six pack abs is not going to work. You need to put food in your body as soon as you wake up if you want your body to burn fat.
To see your abs, your body depends on your metabolic rate being as fast as possible. When you start to miss meals (especially your breakfast), your metabolism will slow down. Not only will it slow down, but your body will start storing fat because you are not eating enough for it to survive.
While your body is storing fat, it will start to feed off your muscles so your body burns fewer calories while starving. So this means that it will make your abs less visible instead of creating a flat stomach like a washboard.
To jump-start your metabolic rate, you need to eat breakfast an hour after waking up. Your muscles need this fuel so they don’t start to burn out and cause your metabolic rate to drop.
Avoiding food is the fastest way to reverse any progress you’ve made in your quest for a set of perfect abs. You need to eat immediately after getting up in the morning, and then you need to eat another 5 small meals during the day so that your metabolism stays fast and your body doesn’t start storing fat.
When you go too long without eating, your body goes into starvation mode and then stores all the calories you are eating as fat.
