I've been told my entire life how important breakfast is, but I just can't do it. Eating in the morning pretty much always makes me queasy, and I refuse to force food down my throat when my stomach clearly doesn't want it. If all of my other healthy lifestyle choices aren't enough to prevent a heart attack, then fark it.

Nope, had my regular bloody mary before work.

Yes, enjoy life by not eating the all the awesome foods that make up the most important meal of the day.

Stick it to them nanny state, four-eyed scienticians what wants to make you provide your body with the necessary fuel it needs to function!

Some meal has to be breakfast, even if eaten at noon

"Some associations remained confounded when compared. While cardiovascular risk appeared to go up in the breakfast-skippers, the data also found that risk was reduced with eating fewer times a day. For those self-reporting one to two meals a day (likely skipping breakfast, or even two meals each day), their risk was less compared to those reporting eating six times a day.

And when accounting for factors like body mass index, smoking, alcohol consumption and other factors, the findings were mostly attenuated, and the connection between breakfast intake and cardiovascular risk was no longer meaningful."



Sooo...thanks for that, Today show!

Yeah, that's a fairly pointless study.  "Eating breakfast is heart-healthy, except it isn't".
 
2013-07-23 10:57:56 AM
Nonsense. I eat enough calories the night before to hold me over until lunch the next day.
 
2013-07-23 11:01:45 AM
Yep, wouldn't want to miss breakfast and cause a heart attack.

Do you know how much life threatening things you can find under a rock, not to mention the crushing weight of the rock itself?  No thanks!

sigdiamond2000: the most important meal of the day


Breakfast is a shiatty meal with shiatty food designed to make your life shiatty before you have to go to work.

Dinner is the best meal of the day, and QED the most important. Breakfast, lunch, and their friends are just there to get you from dinner to dinner each day.

What food you eat at what meal is entirely arbitrary.

Who suggest that bacon was a breakfast food when it's really an anytime food?

There are no laws to say you can't have spaghetti for breakfast.

I've always been partial to elevenses.
 
2013-07-23 11:29:51 AM
Yup, I got it covered - had a bowl of shredded wheat, soy milk, an apple, and for a treat I looked at a danish and got beaten about the head and neck for even thinking about eating it. Gotta be at the gym in 26 minutes too.

But there is policy that you can't get a big mac at 9 AM or hash browns at 3 PM.

Don't kid yourself, kid. "Breakfast" food is the same bullshiat as prohibition, anti-smoking, intelligent design, and abstinence only education. Just another large movement to make your quality of life into another kind of movement. A bowel movement.

Well the beer I had for breakfast wasn't bad, so I had 1 more for dessert

Me, too. There was a short time when I tried eating breakfast and gained weight, since I ate the same as always the rest of the day. Now I just do without and save the time, calories and money.

something about correlation and causation and journalists writing misleading articles about studies they don't full understand and furthermore

True for me as well.  The earliest I can eat without getting an upset stomach is about two hours after waking up.

So basically, the study says, men who do not eat a healthy breakfast do not have healthy habits the rest of the day either.  Got it thanks!

THIS.
Who can eat in the morning? I sure can't unless it's fresh fruit or something. Ugh, just the thought of putting food in my mouth in the morning makes me gaggy.

In college if Waffle house was too crowded at 6 am to cure my hangover in timely manner, the big breakfast was a fine substitute.

The article actually said fresh fruit was great breakfast.

I generally eat while driving to work or right after I get to work, which is about an hour after waking up minimum.

This. I need at least a cup of coffee and a few hours on the day before I can even think about nomming on a cereal bar.

I'm always famished by the time lunchtime rolls around though, and dinner will always have my attention. Evening eating is just more satisfying.

I wake up leaving myself the minimum amount of time needed to get ready to go to work. I will always choose sleep over breakfast.

I start off every morning at JJ's with a hot coffee, and the Four Horsemeals of the Eggporkalypse.

I suspect it's a lot more likely that the kind of people that lead high stress lifestyles which lead to heart attacks are more likely to be the kind of people that skip breakfast... instead of skipping breakfast leading to heart attacks.

I love having a full breakfast in the morning but I almost never get up in time to make one. But didn't have to get up for work today so I made steak and eggs for the first time - yum!

Corelation = causation, duh. Eating a plate full of bacon first thing in the morning will prevent a heart attack. That's my conclusion and nothing will sway me.
 
2013-07-23 11:56:00 AM
I NEED food when I wake up. I seriously don't get why folks get gaggy at the thought of eating breakfast or need to wait 2-3 hours. Then again, perhaps that's just habit. If folks are used to getting up, showering, getting to work and eating something there at 10ish, then grabbing a late lunch, then dinner at like 8pm or later, I guess that makes sense. I try not to eat after 7:30pm (though I will drink whatever, as long as it's not caffeinated), which is probably why I need my breakfast pronto.
 
2013-07-23 11:56:32 AM
I have to have something for breakfast, if I don't I feel like I drag in the morning -- even if it's just a glass of water and some lightly buttered toast. ANYTHING

Savage Bacon: I seriously don't get why folks get gaggy at the thought of eating breakfast


Because we're nauseous.

I didn't eat till maybe 11 today, and I almost always eat breakfast. Today I just didn't have it in me. When you don't feel like something, your body tells you.

Smeggy Smurf: Coffee and fruit is my breakfast

 
2013-07-23 12:01:52 PM
Heard this on NPR, this morning.  I've been eating breakfast before bed time, for a long time.  Fruit, yogurt, banana bread or whatever.  The nutrients do their thing, while I sleep.  And it saves a lot of time in the mornings.
