    What is the most important meal of the day?

    Studies show that breakfast is the most important meal of the day.  But most people, including myself, don't have time to eat a full breakfast.  What about you?  Which do you think is the most important meal of the day?

    Most dieticians and health enthusiasts will agree that the most important meal of the day is breakfast.
    After a fast of 8 or so hours from sleeping, and the last meal, the body needs to refuel for the day ahead.

    Breakfast is the most important meal of the day.  When we have breakfast you are breaking a fast that you have been on for all the hours you have been asleep.

    Yes, I would say breakfast is the most important meal of the day. It  increases metabolism, boosts energy for the  whole day and controls weight.

    I agree with the others. Breakfast is so named because it "breaks" the 8 hour "fast." The human body is fueled by food, obviously, so after a 8 hour fast, it needs fuel. It is definitely easier to just skip it and have a doughnut after you get to work, but that raises blood sugar through the roof. Around 10am, the sugar is gone and the body is in a severe slump. On the other hand, a breakfast that provides protein with a bit of carbs and fruit gets you through until lunch, I try to avoid dry cereal as it is mostly sugar. Instead an egg or two with a slice of ww toast and a bowl of peaches makes a delicious meal that will stay with you until lunch. A half cup of yogurt over a half cup of granola should work well, too. Just make sure you have enough protein.

    Most of those in the know, doctors, dieticians, work out specialists, even our own Grandmothers, will say breakfast.

    Break - the -fast

    What you personally eat, within the first 4-6 hours of waking, is the most important.

    If you get up at 8 am and want a taco..........go for it......it is breaking the fast.......

    If you get up at 3pm and want bacon and eggs..........go for it......it is breaking the fast.........

    Just eat Something with a few (4-6) hours of waking.

    Breakfast!  It prepares you for your day.  Eating a good breakfast is shown to improve brain function throughout the day.  It also will help you stay energetic and keep you from excessive snacking.

    Breakfast in the most nutritional sense and the most traditional sense is I guess the most important meal of the day, but for us, the most important meal of the day is when we all sit down together to a proper dinner at the end of the work/school day. I always make sure there is a proper dinner there for everyone and we tend to eat around 7.30 as I finish work at 6pm in the week. Sometimes it's a meal in the slo-dooker (crock pot), sometimes a pasta dish with all the trimmings, sometimes a roast, but it's a proper dinner where we all share the day and mostly have a really good laugh because of the outrageous conversation (two older teenagers in the mix). Sometimes we have guests  too which makes it all the more fun- yup - for us it's our dinner
