This is a myth!
Even though skipping a meal means reducing your calorie intake which is what it takes to reduce weight. The moment your body reaches a starvation mode, it will start storing fat which ultimately leads to belly fat.
Upon skipping a meal, your blood sugar decreases which causes interruption in one’s ability to think straight. This will also cause one to feel irritable, confused and fatigue. As the body increases the production of cortisol, this will leave one stressed and hungry. As such, your body will lower the rate which it burns energy. When you finally eat, your body will store as much energy as it can incase it is starved again.
