Until the fall of 2011 I was one of the countless, who despite what they know about the importance of breakfast, still don’t eat it. I just about never ate breakfast…or sometimes I’d eat a piece of fruit or something small at my desk around 10am when I realized I was hungry, but that it was too early to eat lunch and so I’d call that breakfast.
I feel livelier now, especially in the morning. I have more energy throughout the day. I don’t need a mid-morning snack and a mid-afternoon snack (which was more like a mini-dinner before real dinner) because my belly is full from the meals I should have been eating all along. I thought I needed those “snacks,” but I think now that they were just my meals being shifted about in compensation. Starting the day on full has made a huge difference.
