frokost = breakfast (Norwegian Bokmål), just to make it a little more confusing!

"lunsj " is "lunch" in Norwegian. "lunch" is "lunch" in Swedish.

But what's wrong with "I eat no lunch"?

It's not wrong from a grammar perspective. It's simply an older phrase that has gone out of style. Hearing someone say "I eat no lunch" would sound odd to an American.
