Do you eat breakfast? Silence Dogood here. The Powers That Be have been very heavy-handed on the breakfast front, assuring us that we can’t lose weight or even stay alive (and avoid major diseases like diabetes and heart disease, as well as obesity) if we don’t regularly consume a hefty breakfast, whether we’re hungry or not.
Then today I read a study that concluded that people who skip breakfast tend to be slimmer than those who make a point of dutifully eating it. What’s the takeaway here?
I say, let’s go with our common sense. If you’re hungry in the early morning, eat breakfast then. If you don’t get hungry until 10 a.m., eat breakfast then. Eat when you get hungry, not when you’re “supposed to,” whether that means you eat at at 10, 3, and 8 or 7, 12, and 6. And eat not only when your body tells you, but what your body tells you, whether it’s a salad and cheese for breakfast or an omelette and toast for supper. Trust it, it knows what it’s doing, which is trying to keep you healthy and alive.
