I eat intuitively. No "breakfast for the past 35 years", and I look and feel good.
by Regina Kessy
As soon as I was independent from my parents who LITERALLY forced breakfast down my throat I never really felt the urge to eat before 11 or 12 noon every day. Some days even later depending on when I had my last meal the night before.
The ‘breakfast as the most important meal of the day’ wisdom seems totally lost on me because my body doesn’t ask for anything when I wake up and I therefore trust and honor that signal. I refuse to believe that there is a one size fits all eating style because we all lead different lifestyles and use fuels differently. In my case for instance, breaking the fast later (note-‘break & fast’) forces the body to use up the stored energy in form of fat deposits, which otherwise would be just enjoying the ride on my skeleton.
As much as I love food particularly dark chocolates, I try to remember that we are supposed to ‘eat to live’ and not the other way round. There are way too many problems in the world, which we as human community can help overcome if we are of health bodies and spirit.
Indeed it is very sad that we live in a world where almost a billion are dying because of over-abundance of food whilst another billion or more are dying from lack of sufficient nutrition. What happened to compassion to self and others?
