The New York Times: Sorry, There’s Nothing Magical About Breakfast

There’s nothing special about eating in the morning. So if you’re not hungry you’re probably better off waiting with “breaking your fast” until you are. Especially if you want to lose weight.

Most important of all, don’t let the breakfast be a refined carb feast like in the image above. You’ll find more healthy inspiration below.

    Wow...look how far humans have advanced. They are adopting the concept of...if you are not hungry, don't eat. What's taken us so long to understand such a simple idea?

    Beats me. I think you probably need years of specialized higher education to not understand it.

    I'm also a firm believer that you should drink when thirsty!

    There's also nothing magical about lunch or supper. I eat breakfast & lunch - works great for me. If I wait too long to eat breakfast my BG goes way up - even after coconut oil with my coffee. Fasting after lunch doesn't have the same problem for me.

    Actually eating a largish breakfast with lots of protein early in the morning while getting sunlight entrains both the central and peripheral circadian cycles so breakfast is very important as is light early in the morning plus it helps balance your leptin - the next meal should come about 8 hours later and then it should be at least 12 hours again before the next breakfast. Timing of meals is about more than fat loss.
