It is a fine line, isn't it.

 

Long ago, I learned to take tests on an empty stomach. Kept me sharper.

 

The golfer, Bobby Jones, discovered early in his career that the competitive round after a full lunch was always worse than the am round.  He was dulled. So he cut out the big meals at lunch, but offered to buy his opponent's meal (heh heh). He played better and his opponents, worse.

As a former teen anrexic I wouldn't wish it on anyone.  I eat when I feel like it and often that does not occur until noon or later. I feel gluggy with a big breakfast or lunch. My son has treated eating diordered teens of all genders and it definitely is not just females from his experience. As with many things - awareness is key.
