Skipping meals leds to diabetes and weight gain

We have all heard that skipping meals leads to having a more difficult time losing weight. However, new research according to Online News on Dec. 4, 2013 reported that it can lead to weight gain and increases your risk for diabetes.

Skipping meals can damage your metabolism which will in turn make losing weight very difficult. The most common meal skipped is breakfast. In order for your body to make up for the missed meal, your metabolism has nothing to do, therefore when you do eat your meals, it is stored as fat.

Skipping meals also contributes to your risk of diabetes. When you skip meals, your blood sugar will lower and often be unstable. When you do eat, some of the food energy is stored as fat and part is sent to your bloodstream as sugar. When your blood is not stable over time, going either too high or too low, it can lead to diabetes later in life.

The bottom line is to eat your breakfast each morning and stay active. In fact, that alone is your best defense against weight gain and diabetes.
