Could Skipping Breakfast Relieve Depression? | Psych Central

Breakfast has always been said to be the best and most important meal of the day, but is it really? Now, studies suggest that people suffering with depression should skip breakfast in order to alleviate the signs and symptoms of this condition. It is a small price to pay for such dramatic benefits. Are you willing to make such a small sacrifice?

Key Takeaways:

  • As a result, nutritionists advocate for eating a “healthy” breakfast and therefore feel satisfied, making it less likely you will reach for the nearest sugar-packed processed food.
  • It is true that most people don’t plan properly and if they skip breakfast that late morning or lunchtime sugar bomb is not a healthy way to go.
  • The approach I’m talking about is intermittent fasting. Intermittent fasting is defined as having a window daily where you do not eat, that includes the sleep hours.

“Conventional wisdom is that breakfast is the most important meal of the day.”
