When I first took nutrition class in college, 'breakfast being good for you' was hammered into our heads. I carried that mentality with me for a while but am just starting to change. Benefits of breakfast (I could be wrong on all of these, but these are what I think)- -helps metabolism get started. -helps cut down hunger for lunch (so you'll eat a smaller lunch portion). -helps provide energy early in the day. Potential 'meh' things about breakfast- -extra calories -many breakfast products aren't really the healthiest (but I suppose you can say that about pretty much any food in the U.S.). I probably went the last 4 years eating breakfast. The last 3 months, however, I've been experimenting with NOT eating breakfast. I'm trying to keep the mentality of just 'calories in/calories out', no matter what time of day it is- meaning that while breakfast may have some potential good benefits, I'm not going to eat extra calories if I don't feel the need. I think breakfast is good if you wake up hungry or if you have a decent amount of work in the morning. Or maybe you have a habit you've built for years. And that's okay. But if you're on the fence in terms of being hungry/etc, why eat it? And yeah, I've read some of the statistics on 'skinnier people, on average, eat more breakfast than otherwise'...but then again, statistics don't ever really tell the true story (simply due to sample sizes, variance, poor methodology, or otherwise). What's your stance on breakfast?
