Skipping breakfast is a priority for a lot of people trying to shed the fat from their mid-section. Skipping meals in an attempt to get six pack abs is not going to work. You need to put food in your body as soon as you get up if you want your body to burn fat.
To see your abs your body relies on your metabolic rate to be as fast as possible. When you start missing out meals ( especially your breakfast ) your metabolism will slow down. Not only will it slow down, but your body will start storing fat because you're not eating enough for it to survive.
While your body is storing fat it will start feeding on your muscles so your body burns less calories while you're starving yourself. So this means that you will be making your abs less visible instead of creating a flat, washboard stomach.
To kick your metabolic rate into gear you must eat your breakfast within an hour of waking. Your muscles need this fuel so they don't start wasting away, and causing your metabolic rate to slow down.
Avoiding food is the quickest way to reverse any progress you have made in your quest for a set of six pack abs. You need to eat right after getting up in the morning, and then you need to eat another 5 small meals during the day so your metabolism stays fast, and your body doesn't start storing fat.
When you go too long without eating your body will go into starvation mode, and then it stores all the calories you're eating as fat.
