    Abstract

    Breakfast omission is associated with obesity and cardiovascular disease/diabetes, but the acute effects of extended morning fasting upon subsequent energy intake and metabolic/hormonal responses have received less attention. In a randomised crossover design, thirty-five lean men (n=14) and women (n=21) extended their overnight fast or ingested a typical carbohydrate-rich breakfast in quantities relative to resting metabolic rate (i.e. 1963±238 kJ), before an ad libitum lunch 3 hours later. Blood samples were obtained hourly throughout the day until 3 hours post-lunch, with subjective appetite measures assessed. Lunch intake was greater following extended fasting (640±1042 kJ, P<0.01) but incompletely compensated for the omitted breakfast, with total intake lower than the breakfast trial (3887±1326 kJ vs 5213±1590 kJ, P<0.001). Systemic concentrations of peptide tyrosine-tyrosine and leptin were greater during the afternoon following breakfast (both P<0.05) but neither acylated/total ghrelin concentrations were suppressed by the ad libitum lunch in the breakfast trial, remaining greater than the morning fasting trial throughout the afternoon (all P<0.05). Insulin concentrations were greater during the afternoon in the morning fasting trial (all P<0.01). There were no differences between trials in subjective appetite during the afternoon. In conclusion, morning fasting caused incomplete energy compensation at an ad libitum lunch. Breakfast increased some anorectic hormones during the afternoon but paradoxically abolished ghrelin suppression by the second-meal. Extending morning fasting until lunch altered subsequent metabolic and hormonal responses but without greater appetite during the afternoon. This study clarifies the impact of acute breakfast omission and adds novel insights into second-meal metabolism.
