welcome to healthcaremagic
when it is known that the problem starts with prolonged empty stomach then it is natural that you should not be in empty stomachfor long time
you should consult physician/gastroenterologist

Dear Doc,

Thanks a lot for your valuable opinion.

I know it is because of my mistake only, if i won't follow nature's rules, i have to suffer. I always try to avoid it but unfortunately sometime i can not maintain my daily routine.

So please answer me relatively, I was expecting why does it happen(What exactly happens inside my body if i do not eat for half of the day only, as you know people fast for a day but i can not think about it because of my problem, so please help me...) ?

And is it going to be something DANGEROUS ;)

James.

Hi James
Missing breakfast/lunch/dinner, could have harmful effects on your body.Breakfast is considered the most important meal of the day and one has to always have breakfast.

Since the dinner is the last meal of the day , a person remains in fasting mode till the next morning , hence it is called" break-fast" the meal which one has to start the day.
Due to overnight fasting , the blood glucose levels come down and if one does not eat in the mornings, the glucose levels will further go down , causing fatigue , lack of energy and may even lead to fainting attacks.

In fasting state or due to irregular and erratic timing of food, the acid secretion increases in the stomach causing symptoms of acidity , indigestion and heart burn. A long standing deficit in calories and multi vitamin and protein deficiency can also happen and pave way to easy access of infections due to lower immunity.

Hence I suggest you to never miss a meal , be it breakfast, lunch or dinner.Have breakfast generously , lunch in moderation and a light dinner at night.This is the key to good health.

Wish you good health

Dr. Vidya,

Thanks a lot.

I got the answer exactly what i was expecting.

Do you mean to say... As of now, I do not have any Medical Issue. I suffer only because of my mistake (of not following the meals)?

I wish "i will break my fast daily" ;)

James.

Hi James,

Thanks for writing back

It is good to learn that you have no other medical issues.I would just ask you to be regular on your breakfast and have meals "on time".

If you smoke or drink alcohol , I suggest to cut down on them, also cut down on coffee or tea/aerated drinks .Soups, salads, fresh fruit juices could do good for you, munch on them as much as you want .

Good luck
