What you should do, and I say this as a doctor, is skip breakfast and then when your metabolism slows to a near standstill, fill yourself up with tons of food, pass out, then wake up and eat supper. Go to bed and repeat again the next day.
This is the only way to stay healthy and lead a healthy lifestyle.
When I ever think of not eating breakfast I just think of Sumo Wrestlers. They get fat because they do not eat breakfast, then cram their daily calories into two large meals. If not eating breakfast is a primary tactic for fattening up sumo wrestlers, then why would I want to avoid eating breakfast?
So I recently went on vacation (a cruise to be more specific) with my family and that was the first time I had eaten breakfast on a regular basis, only skipping one day. This was basically because I could get bacon and some hard boiled eggs easily without any effort. But when I'm home, I never eat breakfast. Mainly because I wake up after noon and it wouldn't be breakfast anyways, but mainly because I just don't feel like doing any cooking that early in the morning (cereal doesn't work for my stomach that early in the morning and actually causes problems).
I eat one meal a day. Breakfast. Of course it's an extensive breakfast, including a hot homecooked dish, in addition to all the regular breakfast trimmings. Fruit, dairy, bread, egg, and more.
Two major upsides. I'm saving a lot of time, and I'm running on empty when it's time to go to bed (and never experience food induced fatigue during the day), which means sleep comes easily, and is more restful than with a full stomach.
Ideally, I wake up 2 hours before I have to be anywhere. Time I use to feast, and ease myself into the day. If the homecooked dish is to be something more elaborate, preparations have been done the night before, though usually I stick with easy dishes. Instead of eating lunch, I work out. The rest of the day's freetime is all mine to spend at my leisure.
It took roughly a week for my body to adjust to this lifestyle, and I wouldn't change it for the world.
