Can I Skip Meals?: Your Question, Tori's Suggestion

“Can I skip meals?” a girl in her twenties recently asked me.  “Sometimes in the mornings, I’m just not hungry for breakfast, or if I eat breakfast I’m just not hungry for lunch – is that okay?” 

Whether it’s because she was too busy to grab a snack/prepare a meal or was trying to lose weight, I think the girl knew the answer to the question deep down, but was looking for my permission to continue this unhealthy behavior.  So if you have the same question, here are my thoughts and suggestions.
