Just for a moment try to forget everything you thought was true about breakfast. Try to forget, for a moment, all the advice of the nutritionists, dietitians, doctors, and other experts. This blogger here inclusive. Just for a moment rely only on YOUR OWN COMMON SENSE for an answer as to whether breakfast has a positive or negative influence on your weight and daily health.
Remember, ENERGY IS THE ESSENCE OF LIFE. When you wake up in the morning, you are rested and at the height of your energy level for the day ahead, provided that your body system did not spend the night contending with a 'midnight snack' or 'late night supper' or miscombined meal. On what are you going to expend that morning burst of energy?
A'hearty breakfast'? You know that digestion uses an enormous amount of energy. A hearty breakfast, which is usually a proverbial 'slap in the face' of the principles of proper food combining, cannot bring you energy ! IT USES IT!
HOW ELSE COULD THE FOOD BE DIGESTED IF ENERGY WERE NOT being expended? Most traditional breakfasts in affluent societies copying from western modern culture, of toast and eggs, or cereal with cow-milk, or meat and potatoes are ill-combined, forcing the human body digestion to work for hours spending its energy. And that's before the natural body cycles of APPROPRIATION (12NOON TO 8 P.M.).
Energy can't even start to be built until food is absorbed from the intestines. Strictly from the standpoint of energy, does it make sense (if common sense is still available) to have breakfast when you wake up in the morning?
If breakfast is skipped, not only will you not pass out from lack of food (your body is actually still using the food eaten the day before), but you will be far more alert and energetic.
This word breakfast is actually a distortion of the words break and fast. Originally the word breakfast was used to indicate the meal used to break a fast. A fast is the abstention from solid food for an extended length of time, not one night's sleep.
