Starting the day right means a good breakfast -- or not?

Yep. Fido makes a great point.


Nutritionists favoring a daily breakfast say that skipping that first meal increases hunger throughout the day, making people overeat and seek out snacks to compensate for missing that first – and some would say most important – meal of the day. Is this a myth?

And does skipping breakfast lead to weight gain?  Not really.  Or maybe, it depends on the study and the confounding factors. Men that skipped breakfast also tend to drink and smoke more, which can be controlled for, but likely do other things differently from breakfast eaters, things still undetected by researchers.

Nutrition studies are often based on observations or self-reporting, so the science behind nutritional recommendations can be insufficient, biased, or based on false information. Transparency in interpreting results would help, though more gray area tends to confuse a public already uncertain of how and what to eat!

What, in fact, is a breakfast for champions?

All this talk of dogs and eating reminds me of the ultimate dog tease — enjoy:

  1. Get a weight loss partner. This makes the task so much easier. Whether the partner competes with you or coaches you, it will add fun to your endeavor and lead to positive things. Salads have a lot of fiber in them and that help you to feel full without taking in too many calories. Before dinner every day is a great way to shed pounds, the danger zone with salad is the choice of salad dressing and the amount you use because the wrong chose packs in added fats and sugars. Don't have lots of calories, although salads have fiber and they are filling. If you want to lose weight, go on a hike, to keep the calories low, stay away from cheese or dressings for salad. Hiking allows you to enjoy the beauty of nature while burning calories. A rigorous hike will burn more calories..
