Eating breakfast is essential to start your metabolism. There is a reason why it is called the most important meal of the day. If you don't eat breakfast, you will continue your fast from overnight and your metabolism will be very low until you eat again. Then, when you eat again, you are more prone to overeat and store those calories as your body is in "starvation mode". Eat breakfast. Even if it's an apple or a glass of milk.

How many pounds will you loose if you dont eat for 2 days?

This will vary from person to person based on an individuals metabolism. Your metabolism is affected by age, weight, activity, general health, etc...

Do eating fast speed up your metabolism?

In truth, no. But then again, it depends on what you're eating. If you're eating a big portion, if you gobble it down fast, you'd be more prone to eat more before realizing you're full.Eating slow lets you savor flavour and aroma's as well as pesky tongue bitting.
