Is breakfast REALLY the most important meal of the day?
Breakfast can be considered the best meal of the day for several reasons:
When deciding to eat breakfast or skip, consider your choices. Some breakfast foods like pastries, doughnuts and high fat and high calorie breakfast sandwiches are not optimal and will not provide the benefits discussed above and often may lead to more calories and food intake.
Lastly, always consider the source of messages stating breakfast is the most important meal of the day, it may just be a breakfast product with interest in promoting this message.
