Everyone thinks I'm stubborn, misinformed and unduly suspicious
(New York, NY)
I've always argued-- not against breakfast--but against believing in correlation as causation when it comes to eating breakfast.. I think that the food industry has a lot of influence on what research is done and how it is presented to the mainly overweight, generally forlorn consumer population..yet every time I forgo breakfast in the presence of my family and friends, they either say "you're wrecking your body's metabolism" or they shake their head in disappointment/ disbelief. I don't consistently eat breakfast in the morning, and normally go with how I feel or what I remember eating last night: if it was a big dinner, I ignore the misleading "hunger" signals in the morning. I am able to control what I eat when I do get hungry, but sometimes it doesn't even occur until late in the day. I am a normal (non-inflated) weight and I do my share of physical activity. I think that gaining weight definitely has more to do with poor eating habits than with when you eat. I am so glad to have found this article! I thought I was irrationally stubborn or just plain ignorant.
