Enjoy the funny breakfast clip.
Breakfast is the most importance meal of the day for weight loss or at least that is what most people say. And that we should eat breakfast within 1-2 hours of waking.
I think that is good advice in general, but might not be true for everyone. For those dieters that have labeled food as ‘bad’ and ‘good,’ there are so many mixed messages when it comes to eating that they have forgotten to only eat when you are hungry and what to eat. Most people are not in tune with their bodies. So having structured meals such as breakfast, snack, lunch, snack, and dinner are very important for weight loss.
But there could be exceptions once you are in the maintenance phase. There are some people who do not wake up in the morning needing to eat until at least three hours into their day. When I get enough sleep, such as during the weekends, I do not get hungry for at least 3-4 hours. I might have some tea, but that is pretty much it. But on weekdays, when I do not get enough sleep, I wake up starving. Sometimes I wonder if people eat, especially the unhealthy and processed stuff, because of a lack of sleep.
I feel that learning how to select nutritious food when you are truly hungry is more important for weight maintenance. Most people cannot diet forever and rarely is it fun. Most of us can learn to eat healthier and it is less tedious without all the structure. I see it as kind of a rite of passage. You have to go through the process of dividing your daily caloric intake into regular meals, starting with breakfast, and re-train yourself into knowing the correct food portion size and the healthier alternatives to what we are eating that got us into trouble. But we once re-train ourselves, we can modify it to fit our lifestyle. However, this process can take a long time and there are still days when I want that Starbucks whipped cream milkshake for breakfast.
