I have seen many post up this concern when they woke up to a high fasting number.
I never, as in never-ever, skip breakfast because of a high fasting number
Because as I have posted many times, Fasting Numbers are the result of sugar released by the Liver when we are not eating for extended periods (sleeping, more than about 5 hours between meals).

I just started intermittent fasting in October because I feel healthier and I workout in the morning drinking water and warm tea until 1pm-9pm of 2 small meals. I've lost weight.

I'm not on bs medication. Blessings and joy to everyone!!!😃
I never skip breakfast when I have high numbers in the morning. I know I need protein. I won't eat a big breakfast ...but I will eat something with protein. I know me ...I am hungry in the morning and if I don't eat , well , that could spell overeating at lunch which isn't good
I always eat breakfast. As a retired teacher it’s so important to fuel up so you can learn. To me breakfast is the most important meal of the day. I have been known to skip lunch but not breakfast.
The only time i skip breakfast is if I sleep through it..then I have brunch when I wake up. Skipping intentionally kicks my butt. Those who think not eating will lower numbers can be mistaken. There have been times I missed a meal and shot up higher. I know my body needs nutrients or it yells at me.
Totally agree. I can already have so little for breakfast (1 carb serving and that usually puts me high anyways) that I just get it over with and by mid morning my numbers tell me I need a snack :) I think of it as 2 small breakfasts.
Thoughts on prebreakfast workouts? I thought the comment above was interesting.
