“Skipping breakfast may cause you to not consume adequate amounts of fibre and nutrients. Not eating breakfast can also cause increased bouts of acidity. Lack of fuel such as glucose will go to the brain and lead to decrease in the functioning of the brain cells—which is why you may experience headaches and dizziness when you haven’t eaten in a while,” said Dt Gauri Anand, a clinical nutritionist and diabetic educator.
