Should You Skip Dinner To Lose Weight?
ScienceDaily is perhaps my all time favorite site. I can spend hours scrolling through recent studies and publications. I guess that’s just the old biologist in me (I was a bio major).
A few weeks ago, I came across this article, entitled, “Eating dinner early, or skipping it, may be effective in fighting body fat.”
I’ve studied up a bit on intermittent fasting and have even experimented with it first hand, so I am drawn to these sort of write-ups.
I wanted to know more. How is this the 1st study performed on humans? What about women, hormones and fasting risks? What’s the difference between skipping breakfast (which is what I did) versus dinner, if any?
So I did what anyone with a podcast would do… I contacted the the person who did the study and asked if they would be interested in chatting.
Man, I love this job!
Dr. Courtney Peterson was more than willing to talk with me. This lady is passionate and knows her stuff. No science fluff here!
So let’s talk food, eating and time for weight loss, shall we?
I hope you guys enjoy this podcast as much as I do! I am definitely going to be doing more study related talks in the future. So be on the lookout!
As for next week… Alex and I will be back together.

And one last thing… let’s talk about that delicious pizza.
Gluten Free Brie Mushroom Egg Pizza
After all this dinner and food chat, I have to share more about the pizza above!
I was craving pizza like no other this past weekend (which is not normal for me) but didn’t want to go to the store to grab supplies. Instead, I dug through the fridge and pantry to see what as in stock.
I had brie leftover from Thanksgiving, mushrooms, spaghetti sauce and eggs (we always have eggs).
I found this paleo pizza crust recipe and by some holiday miracle, had everything I needed!
And that’s how this baby came to be. Seriously, the best pizza I’ve ever made. No lie. Normally, I have no problem letting Dan have all the leftovers. But not this time, I made him split the last piece with me!
I cooked the pizza dough for about 10 minutes before adding the toppings. Sauce, then cheese, mushrooms, onions and finally the eggs. I cooked it all until the eggs were set (I didn’t want them too runny)… about 15 minutes.
Have a great day friends!
Do you ever skip a meal?
Have you ever had eggs on a pizza?
