I have trouble seeing how people make it to lunch without breakfast. I am ready to gnaw my own arm off if I skip breakfast.

I don't eat breakfast and I rarely eat lunch, when I do it's usually a piece of fruit or a glass of juice. Typical day for me is to wake up about 5-6 am and the first meal I eat is around 6-7 pm.

I'm having trouble seeing why this young man is so bent out of shape over whether or not someone eats breakfast, and why he gets so angry over someone else discussing the benefits of breakfast.  His argument is equally stupid, as in when did eating habits need to be discussed involving social habits and what is going on in the world?  The only thing that would get me to eat breakfast more consistently, is the thought of skipping breakfast could mean a hug from the Dr. Strange Doogie.  I guess he was shamed into a lot of stuff which could be why he obsesses with social shaming, maybe.

/yeah, I get people saying stuff about other's eating habits is annoying and it happens to me
//I ignore them.

Who is this Beiber-like uber-wise smarmy throat-choked litte queer? And why is the Atlantic Monthly involved. He needs a slapping, quickly. Him an his farking mug. WTF can he possibly know except that he's probably a bottom.

I find that if I skip breakfast, it pushes my eating schedule ahead, and i end up eating too much in the evening.  So that rather than eating when I'm actually doing stuff and might burn at least some of the calories off, I end up eating when I'm sitting on my increasingly fat ass watching TV or submitting lame headlines to Fark.

I guess if you avoid hypoglycemia and such good for you. My friend lived like this for 2 years and went to the emergency room a bunch of times. There was a bodybuilder who ate 10,000 calories once a day at dinner, so I suppose one has to know themselves.

I'm hypoglycemic and breakfast is important if I'm doing things that day.  If I'm just sitting around the house doing nothing all day, breakfast can wait until mid-day.  But if I'm going to work or doing sporty things, breakfast is paramount, or my blood sugar crashes spectacularly.  But this morning?  It's been coffee.  I went to the store to buy stuff for breakfast, but seeing how I'm injured, I'm not terribly motivated to make it.

I came in here to basically say all of this, although probably not as eloquently.

His idea of breakfast is probably a thimble of wheat-grass juice and an acorn.

Breakfast is usually my biggest meal of the day.

The missus has to force herself to eat something for breakfast.

  From the video:   What you eat is much more important than when you eat it.

I disagree. When is far more important. Skipping breakfast is a bad idea as it slows your metabolism, you feel way less energetic, and your body will actually store more fat. Eating for recovery immediately after exercise is crucial as well. This was driven home to me treeplanting as you will burn 5-7000 calories a day so if you f*ck up the nutrition you will hurt like you never have before and wont be a baller raking in the fat money. I planted well into my 40's and paying close attention to nutrition was essential to feeling well and being productive.

Work days, Non sugary cereal with 2% milk. Sometimes fruit. Off days, eggs, toast bacon or sausages. Black coffee.

Who's got time for breakfast?

If I know I'm going to eat a large lunch, I'll skip breakfast. That's normally about once a week and after a night of heavy drinking.

/It's also normally on a Sunday
//why yes I did skip breakfast this morning
