Because I don't communicate via PM on here anymore (Did anyone look at my hub page and realize I have other contact informaton?), I'm posting on this topic here because someone messaged me about his difficulty in eating breakfast secondary to plain old lack of appetite.
I used to think that we MUST have breakfast and that we MUST have six meals per day, but with all the studies that have come out showing that there is not much significant benefit from spreading calories out over six meals versus fewer meals, and there are are actually benefits of intermittent fasting, I no longer believe breafkast or 5 to six meals per day are MUSTS provided you emphasize peri-workout nutrition and consume the appropriate calories and macronutrients per day. (Granted it will be difficult to consume more 5,000 calories in 2 to 4 meals unless "non-clean" foods are eaten, but it can be done. Even Michael Phelps consumes 10,000 calories over 3 meals and several shakes.)
I think intermittent fasting has been discussed here before and I'm considering experimenting with the guidelines provided on leangains.com. Layne Norton, Lyle McDonald, and Alan Aragon have all been writing and speaking about IF and lower meal frequency.
After finishing the RFL diet a couple of weeks ago, I went to eating 3 to 4 meals per day (5 occasionally), something I haven't done in a very, VERY long time. However, only on a few occasions had I fasted for more than 14 hours or more including sleep time.
So to the guy who messaged me, you can:
1) Not have breakfast but make sure you're getting the right calories, macronutrients, and peri-workout nutrition.
2) Try to have foods that are easy to get down with lack of appetite.
3) Force yourself to have breakfast initially, and then let your body prime itself to become hungry after you awake.
