I have not tried this yet with steel cut oats. You can use oatmeal the kind you cook cover with almond milk and refrigerate for at least 4 hours (overnight works too) and it's done . No cooking, it's great.
oatmeal (especially steel cut oats) is great with added dried fruit and cooked with almond milk in place of water. Do it in big batches and freeze in individual portion sizes (or refrigerate if you're going to eat it daily)

yeah, if I tried to do anything strenuous without eating at least a little, I would just pass out. I've had days when I rode my bike to work without enough to eat and part way through the morning, I'm sitting on my classroom floor with tunnel vision and too dizzy to stand up and have to send a kid to bring me candy or orange juice to get my blood sugar back to normal. I'm not diabetic - just need my breakfast!

I walk 4 miles each AM asap upon rising. I usually have breakfast at some point after I shower etc. depending on my schedule. I'm working on making sure of breakfast each day. It's just a bad habit I've gotten in to..
Definitely eat breakfast! For me, it's usually a homemade smoothie, with loads of fruits & leafy greens. Then I have a late-morning snack and enjoy a late lunch as well (usually 1:30 or 2:00). If by chance, I have to meet someone for lunch who wants the noon hour, I'll skip the late-morning snack.

I'm with you - a morning person. Hubby is the opposite - until the doctor told him that he must/should eat breakfast; he was often a breakfast skipper. He eats later in the day, though, whereas I could do without an evening snack (or could eat one out of habit to join him - which is a poor excuse)
I live for breakfast, usually eating two solid meals within my first four waking hours, and then lunch at about hour 7 of the day. If I don't eat again all day, I'm fine, but I can't skip those early meals. Everything about my natural rhythms screams "morning person"

As someone who works nights, I don't have a 'breakfast-lunch-dinner' schedule like other people do. I eat within 2-3 hours of getting up and that's my breakfast. However, I did a bit of research on this 'intermittent fasting' and it just looks like a dude trying to peddle his wares through pseudo-science. I can't find a single study that promotes skipping breakfast every day or even skipping meals altogether.
I'm always hungry as soon as I wake up. I have never voluntarily skipped breakfast in my life.
This line from the article made me laugh: "When it comes to whether or not breakfast is important, the paleo community is firmly divided." Never mind what the science says, the neanderthals must preach!
