Do you skip meals (even sometimes)?

Just wondering if you skip any meals. I tend to skip breakfast on a daily basis. By the time I get the kids up and ready, get them fed and taken care of, go to the gym, have their activities, etc. it's time for lunch so I never have breakfast. What about you?

I am with you and breakfast is also a meal that i also skip daily. Sometimes i do not even eat until supper! I guess it all depends on just how busy of a day that i am having. When i substitute teach at the school i often skip breakfast and lunch as i am always kept busy! When i get home though that is when hunger hits and i mean hard ... LOL! I do not really notice that i am hunger until work is over and my day is done!

something similar happens to me...the busier i am, the less i think of how hungry i am...it's as if being bussy dissembled the hunger feeling, don't know why.

I skip breakfast often as well. Most of the time I just have an orange juice, or a youghourt, but often i don't have anything at all. I know it's not really healthy, but i am not really hungry in the early morning. I usually don't eat between meals, so i have lunch and then dinner. It's by night time when i am really hungry...so i guess i am opposed to the rest of the world lol.

I am just like you actually i do not have an appetite in the mornings at all. I will be hungry by noon hour but i always tend to forget about it at work because i have 20 kids to feed and by the time they finish eating and get outside for recess i just want a break ... LOL!! When i get home though i am starving!!

I'm like you. As soon as it hits around 4:00pm I'm starving!!!! I'm not really all that hungry before 1200pm so I'll eat lunch but then I want dinner early.

Breakfast is the one meal I don't normally skip unless it's on the weekend. Then if I sleep in, I have lunch, lol. But most days I tend to eat breakfast late so I don't bother with lunch. I'll usually have a snack around three in the afternoon and then supper is normally between five and six. And then I complain cause I can't gain any weight, haha, who's fault is that I wonder?

I don't eat breakfast, either. I try to eat something because they say it revs up your metabolism and all that, but it's hard. I usually eat more of a "brunch" at around 11am. LOL

I still call that breakfast because a lot of us don't have time to have breakfast in the morning or I guess don't make time.

Try hard to eat something in the morning. The most important meal of the day is breakfast. That's when your body needs nutrition and energy the most in that time of day, in the mornings.

I know what you mean. I'm wondering though since I wake up at 8 and do all that that my body thinks breakfast is at 11:00am or so.

i seldom skip meals,especially breakfast. i do that when i am so busy, i just drink a cup of coffee than i go to work... but if i am not that busy, i make it a point that i eat my breakfast, as it helps me to be more active and more energetic at work... good day

i usually skip breakfast. i don't really like breakfast foods so i usually either don't eat anything in the morning or sometimes just leftovers from the night before. i never seem to be that hungry in the mornings.

Most of the time I skip breakfast and sometimes lunch. One reason is I'm always in a hurry for work and school. Now I'm trying to eat every morning and every breakfast on time because I'm experiencing intestinal problem this month like, I always feel hungry even I just ate an hour ago.

unfortunately, i have to skip the most important meal of the day --- breakfast, because i usually am up and running very early in the morning. i hardly ever skip lunch or dinner, although i try to keep it light.

I have never really eaten breakfast, It really does help to eat breakfast to start a good productive and healthy day, but its such a hassle, for me anyways!

I always skip breakfast. No appetite for it. My eating times really vary too. I only eat when I'm hungry so that can be anytime during the day.

I used to skip breakfast for the longest time. I always felt rushed in the morning, so stopping for breakfast seemed like a waste of time. Now I make it a point to have a glass of orange juice at least. I rarely skip dinner, but sometimes I will skip lunch.
