A lot of guys don’t eat breakfast. The weird thing is, though, that skipping a meal is more likely to give you a gut and make you sick than having something quick before you leave the house. “If you skip breakfast, the prolonged fasting can slow your metabolism and immune function, leading to weight gain and more frequent infections,” Masley says.
