eating a late breakfast ok??

I am at work by 6 am and I don't like to eat breakfast until 7:30-8:00.. I'm not hungry till then usually. I've heard to start your metabolism, I need to eat sooner-closer to when I get up ( which is 5am). Thoughts?

    It really doesn't matter. Eat whenever it works for you.

    I had breakfast around 4pm today. It doesn't matter when you eat, or how often, only how much.

    Breakfast has very little to do with your metabolism. Eat whenever you want as long as you're staying within your calorie and nutrition goals.

    Meal timing is irrelevant. Total calories at the end of the day along with balanced macro/micro nutrients are what count.

    If your metabolism shuts down, you'll be dead. Eat whenever you like.
