This is directed to people who normally eat breakfast:

Hypothetically, and in the interest of watching how much you consume overall, might you forego eating breakfast on a day that later you’re planning to attend a brunch or luncheon and you expect to be eating a large meal there, or for you personally, does it balance out to be no big deal because of the number of hours between the two sittings?

    Thanks! You’re right on both accounts, and I have made the corrections.

    As a retiree without a set time schedule to my day, I normally eat breakfast halfway through my morning. If I had an eating 'event' to attend sometime during the day, I would not be having breakfast at all due to the activity of preparing to go out. It would have nothing to do with the fact that there would be food (a little or a lot) at my destination. If the 'event' is in the evening, I usually skip the mid-day meal in order to prepare to go out. Again, having nothing to do with the type of repast I'd be attending. For me, the situation is much like trying to walk and chew gum at the same time.

    Before retirement, I never ate breakfast before I left for work. Again, slowing down to eat while preparing to go out was not my strong suit. I almost always brought my own lunch, prepared the night before, which I ate around 11:00 AM.

    As opposed to people who abnormally eat breakfast?

      He’s just being Stu; I ignore him when he’s in his moments (which happens often, lol).

    Ah, but I raise a reasonable question, yes?

    I would likely eat just a light breakfast.

    I would eat what I normally do, a light breakfast.  Except for today, I skipped breakfast because I wasn't hungry.  This post was edited by Honey Dew at February 15, 2023 3:10 AM MST

    I would eat breakfast and then consume an  appropriate amount at the event. I don't skip a meal in order to overeat later.

    I'd only normally miss it if I were in a hurry to be at an appointment on time. 

    There is also the problem of keeping blood sugar level under control. A hypo is usually worse than a hyper. Where the former is not a risk, a reduction in breakfast carbohydrate intake would be an option.

    I am retired but when working my days gave about five hours between breakfast and lunch.

    So I would still have had breakfast but perhaps a slightly smaller portion; and, more to the point, tried to avoid the mid-morning snack temptation.
