Breakfast anyone? Or not?

You know those days when you forget (or just can't) eat until 1:00 in the PM? Well, after reading this article I don't feel so bad about it: The Breakfast Myth, Part 2

Also, based on comments from my previous post, I really think we ought to start a movement to bring back the phrase "on the rag".

LMAO! You crack me up.

I eat breakfast most mornings simply because I'm hungry. I find that if I don't eat breakfast, I tend to overeat for lunch because I'm starving. I don't buy into the whole "you have to eat breakfast" thing but for me, it's usually a "must."

This is fascinating, and at some level I knew all of this instinctively. When I eat anything sweet tasting for breakfast, even if it's "healthy" and higher in protein like a nonfat Greek yogurt with cereal and fruit or a protein bar - I am starving an hour later. My preferred breakfast foods are leftovers, or eggs and sausage, or a sandwich (when I used to be able to eat bread in the morning anyway). This morning I had leftover turkey taco meat, salsa, and a 100-calorie pack of guacamole on a high-fiber, low carb tortilla. That was 2.5 hours ago and I am still pretty full. The good fat from the guacamole and protein from the meat keep me going for a long time. I've never liked cereal for breakfast (I DEFINITELY get hungrier all day after I eat cereal for breakfast) and it really makes sense why.
