    What a scam...

    However, as I mentioned in that previous thread - there is absolutely nothing wrong, and in fact, much right, about eating a healthy and SMALL breakfast. Such as eggs, turkey bacon and a slice of wheat toast. Or, a fat-free, low sugar greek yogurt. Or, a smoothie... My go-to is: Almond Milk, organic blueberries/strawberries, banana, 1Tbl spoon Organic Chia Seeds, 1tsp of Organic Raw Cacao Powder, 1 Tbl of Organic Extra Virgin Coconut Oil or Organic EVOO.
    32 ounces of water before breakfast. 32 ounces of water after and before lunch. 32 ounces of water after lunch and before dinner.
    I switch off between a cup of dark/strong coffee and green tea throughout the week, always in the morning - never after 12pm.

    Southpaws war on breakfast continues. :p

    It's getting so hard to be a breakfastien in this country. It's like, we've got all these dinner people taking over and forcing their beliefs on us. The president isn't helping because he is one of them! There was a time in this country when you could be a proud Breakfastien, but now all these Lunchlims and Dinnerists are coming into this country and taking over! it's tragic, but then again, it has all been foretold...

    I remember my dad reading to me from the Holy book of breakfast when I was a kid, he told me of a time when evil would consume the world and the war on breakfast would begin. He said there would be throngs of sinners who would abandon breakfast and that it would even become socially unacceptable to be a breakfastian, but the faithful would be rewarded in the final days with vouchers to the endless breakfast buffet in the sky.

    Choose you this day whom ye will serve people, but as for me and my house, we will serve the breakfast lord...

    To make my point clear - my belief and what I have learned is that "breakfast", or, eating in the morning, is no more important than any other meal in the day. What IS important is WHAT you eat and how much! Not just for breakfast/in the morning, but for lunch and dinner as well...

    I have to eat something in the morning - I can't eat much - some oatmeal, usually, but I need something in my stomach. And then something again around 9ish (I wake up around 6).
