Don’t Skip and Lose Weight

Women who reported skipping meals lost almost 8 fewer pounds than women who did not. “The mechanism is not completely clear, but we think that skipping meals or fasting might cause you to respond more favorably to high-calorie foods and therefore take in more calories overall,” said Anne T. McTiernan, director of the Fred Hutchinson Center’s Prevention Center in Seattle and lead author of the study. “We also think skipping meals might cluster together with other behaviors. For instance, the lack of time and effort spent on planning and preparing meals may lead a person to skip meals and/or eat out more.”
