    Default Is Breakfast Really The Most Important Meal Of The Day?

    Breakfast is often described as the most important meal of the day, but is skipping this morning meal really detrimental to health? Newer research suggests this may not be as bad as many of us believe. In this Honest Nutrition feature, we take an in-depth look at breakfast and whether skipping it is really harmful.

    Breakfast literally means “to break the fast.” It is the first meal of the day after a stretch of not eating overnight.
    Breakfast earned its title as the most important meal of the day back in the 1960s after American nutritionist Adelle Davis suggested that to keep fit and avoid obesity, one should “eat breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince, and dinner like a pauper.”

    Well, if one followed her plan (and I see nothing wrong with it, in fact among farmers through the centuries, that was the ideal regimen), one would probably be hungry enough to eat a hearty breakfast. But I for one am never hungry in the morning despite what I may or may not have eaten the night before, and I have to take a couple of spoonfuls of something like applesauce or ricotta cheese or a couple of inches of banana in order to take my morning opioid, which I can't ingest on an empty stomach... But other than that, I'll wait for my first meal of the day at about 1 PM, and my last one at 6 PM or so. I read that as we get older we typically tend to lose our appetite anyway, and that is true for me.

    "...“eat breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince, and dinner like a pauper.” That's the way I used to eat in more recent years until I learned about intermittent fasting (IF) 8-9 years ago, and simply tossed the pauper's light snack dinner in favor of IF, which made IF a simple shoe-in, and it also allowed me to go to bed on a 6-8 hour emptied stomach for a better night's sleep.
