Do you eat breakfast every day or do you skip it? Is it unhealthy to skip breakfast?
I sometimes have breakfast and sometimes skip it. It's supposed to be unhealthy to skip breakfast but I seem to do just fine, maybe a little hungry on the days I skip. What do you think?
I have been a no-breakfast person for most of my life. A couple of years ago, when I decided to get more health conscious, I started making sure I ate three times a day at least. I started losing weight too, quickly. I think making sure I eat something in the morning is a big part of that.
My habit has usually been to drink coffee in the morning. That generally kills my appetite until at least 10:00. Some recent health problems caused me to cut out the morning coffee, now I wake up hungry.
The last study results I saw claim that breakfast is not as important as commonly thought. Who knows what the next study will say? When I'm road tripping or camping, breakfast is my favorite meal. At home, however, I rarely indulge in it.
Breakfast is always something that I wanted to get into the habit of doing, but never really found the time. Research has indicated that skipping breakfast can be a detriment to your health, but I have skipped it all my life and have seen no side effects.
The old adage says: "Breakfast like a King, lunch like a Prince and dinner like a Pauper." We've always lived that way and start the day with a healthy breakfast. Sometimes I make a big batch of fresh fruit muesli that lasts for several days. Other days we enjoy eggs and wholegrain toast or homemade granola. We always make a smoothie with almond milk (homemade) raw oatmeal and several fresh fruits. Every once in a while we crave wholegrain waffles or pancakes. I think it all depends on what you're accustomed to doing.
I never ate breakfast while I was going to school because I never could get up early enough to have time for it. I also never had it while I wasn't going to school (like during summer break) because I would still not get up early enough to have time for it. Now, since my job is pretty lenient, I have the time to have some breakfast. Lately it's small bowl of oatmeal, a yogurt and a coffee in the morning, or whatever else I bring for myself.
All we ever hear is that you should eat breakfast every day. I'm not sure the difference it's made in myself, but if I'm hungry in the morning I might as well eat something, or my stomach is going to keep reminding me to feed it. I know some people avoid it because of lack of time or trying to eat less to lose weight, however my weight hasn't changed from going from not having breakfast to having breakfast; I think it can definitely make you feel better, I just love to eat!
I have a daily breakfast routine, because of diabetes 2. My body reacts to not eating a health breakfast daily. For me, it is unhealthy to skip breakfast: I must have tea, toast and turkey sausage to function in the morning.
I eat breakfast every morning before I go to work because I believe it is a good routine to a healthy life style. It doesn't matter if it is just toast and marmalade or cereals like porridge, cornflakes, or croissants with a cup of hot milky coffee. As long as I have something to eat it starts me off for a good day. I rarely skip it.

I eat breakfast, but I don't eat it until around noon or 1p.m. since I don't get up until 11:00 most days. But I'll still eat breakfast food for the first meal. Just because I like eggs and cereal and toast and such. So I guess my first meal of the day is, technically,...
