People who skip breakfast are not only more apt to eat more, but eat poorly. They get to lunch and all the body's alarms starting going off, so they run to the nearest Mexican restaurant for chips and and burrito.
Fasting is an acceptable method for fat loss if you can discipline yourself to still eat cleanly and in appropriate portions. Note that appropriate portions can still be fairly large. If I do a fasting day, I don't skip calories from meals 1, 2, and 3. I consume them all together from clean foods at the start of the feeding window. Get your protein requirement, old timer!
