Should you skip breakfast in 2020? Intermittent fasting has become more popular in the past few years, but it is important for burning more fat or is it even healthy?
Should You Skip Breakfast?
Let’s talk about the most important meal of the day… or is it?
The literal meaning of the word Breakfast is break-fast… “breaking your fast”, so let’s chat about how you should break your fast and when you should break your fast.

You are already in fat burning mode.
Your body is amazing.
I just love learning about how incredible God made us and how fascinating everything works inside us.
One way that our body naturally works is that it can create energy multiple ways… and knowing this you can “hack” how your body burns energy.
The easiest way for your body to create energy is through the food you eat especially carbs and sugar. It is fast and quick energy, but it also can create energy crashes and cravings.. on and on… creating an endless cycle.
However, your body also can use it’s reserves to create energy by turning fat into energy it can use – which is ideal, right??
So how do we “trick” our body into staying in “fat burning mode” longer and help us get the results we need?
Fat Burning Mode = Ketosis
When you don’t eat throughout the night, you are already in fat burning mode when you wake up.
Knowing this, you can continue to get the benefits and stay in fat burning mode longer by skipping breakfast or using intermittent fasting.

What to eat not When to eat.
Everyone is talking about “when to eat” but I think the biggest factor is “What you eat” to break your fast.
If you are fasting for 13 hours and then eat a plate of pasta… you aren’t going to get the benefits of intermittent fasting.
Although, I do believe that you can lose weight without dieting through intermittent fasting… It is still important what you eat.
If you want to get the best benefits of fasting, there should always be an importance on foods that help you burn more fat and fuel your body the right way.
Listen to your body.
I started implementing intermittent fasting about 3 years ago because I started reading the benefits and I thought it sounded like something I could easily practice myself.
If you want to try it for a week and test it out yourself to see how you feel and if it is something you want to continue.
Modified Intermittent Fasting
I typically do a modified intermittent fast because I drink my keto coffee that doesn’t cause an insulin response and keeps you in “fat burning mode” just like not eating would do.
When I started this daily routine, I honestly felt amazing! I had less cravings and started my day with mental clarity and energy. Plus, I started losing weight without doing anything else different.
If you want to get started with this modified intermittent fasting, you can grab your own keto coffee here.
