Former Wall Street trader Frank Partnoy pointed out that the culture today is that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, dinner is the most enjoyable and lunch "gets short shrift".
Even members of staff who take their lunch hour seriously tend to end up eating a sandwich or salad at their desk or continue to be connected with technology while eating.
Due to these points, Mr Partnoy believes that employers should begin to question whether a mandatory lunch break rule needs to be introduced into their company.
"One obvious reason to do lunch is to slow down and gain some perspective. If we burrow into work, and don't come up for air during the day, we will have a hard time thinking strategically or putting our daily tasks into broader context," he explained to the BBC.
Employees have also been urged recently by Dan Hackam, associate professor at Western University in Ontario, Canada, to refrain from doing irregular shift work on a constant basis, due to the threat of health problems developing.
