BAD, BAD, BAD
No breakfast at all
Some people say they’re not hungry when they wake up, but because you’ve fasted all night your metabolism — and fat-burning ability — slows down. Those who skip breakfast are also more likely to be overweight and eat more fat and calories the rest of the day, said Susan Biali, a physician who specializes in dietetics in Vancouver.
Bypassing breakfast also makes you less productive and less likely to excel at school or work. If you think eating breakfast makes you hungrier the rest of the day, you’re probably starting off with too much sugar. But if you’re wrestling between a bad breakfast and no breakfast at all, choose the doughnut and try to limit how much you eat.
The short version: "experts" say eat when you’re not hungry. Now stop and think about that, and how astoundingly stupid it is.
