I used to love breakfast and would alternate daily between locally produced bacon and own chook or duck eggs, either poached or scrambled or THT-style porridge with dried fruits. Bring me a big brekky plate if we are out and about in the morning and I would be happy, because I would be grumpy AF if I didn't have brekky , but for the past six months I have been doing intermittent fasting and have actually been more productive and feel better by pushing out breaking my daily fast until after 2pm. I only eat now between 2 pm and 10pm and do a full 24 hour fast on a Sunday. I do have a bulletproof-type coffee in the morning and find that this helps to keep my hunger abated until 2pm easily. I will still have porridge or eggs and bacon, I just have it after 2pm now.
According to latest studies breakfast isn't as important as we were led to think it is. Neither is the bs that we have to eat 3 meals a day, or 6 meals a day if you workout bruh and want to put on weight. Seems it was the big food manufacturers who pushed these memes around, whowouldathunkit? Recent research is actually showing better results for limiting your food intake "improved blood sugar levels, decreased risk of heart disease and cancer, and it might just help your brain ward off neurogenerative diseases like Alzheimer's and Parkinson's while improving mood and memory".
I have been able to add weight (muscle mass) and drop body fat % over the past 6 months through this diet regime and two six week functional hypertrophy weights programs thrown in for good measure. During the two programs I have been eating non stop during my 8 hour window and still dropping body fat %, it is nice to feel the trousers get looser around the waist, tighter in the thighs and the shirts getting tighter in the shoulders and arms.
Considering I have now hit 50 I am pretty pumped that I can still make decent physique changes through diet and exercise. Mind you I do notice that recovery is soooo much more important now that I am getting older. I make sure to do mobility work every day and take extra magnesium, tumeric, etc to help with any inflammation.
