Skipping Breakfast is Good for Me

Wednesday, October 03, 2012

So, I've known forever that I wasn't a breakfast person. The though of eating in the morning makes me nauseous. BUT I forced myself to follow the "rule" of never skipping breakfast to improve my health for quite some time.

Anywho, recently I've gone back to listening to my body and started skipping breakfast. And, boy, do I feel great. It's been 3 weeks, and my dad and husband already noticed I've shed some pounds! I've certainly noticed in that my clothes fit looser (I actually bought a pair of pants size large today without trying them on, brought them home, tried them on for my dh and he said they looked big! sweet. :) and I feel like I have so much more energy. I've been cooking dinner more, waking up easier...

I have also been watching the calories and am sticking to the low end of my recommendations. I began walking daily for an hour, but that just started this week. Things are happening so easily.

And for you skipping-breakfast-is-bad-for-
you naysayers, check out the Nutrition Journal: www.nutritionj.com/conte

Here are some other good resources: www.thefatlossninja.com/


So, all in all, I'm pretty pumped about how things are going. That 20 year high school reunion is going to be that much sweeter. :)

    I skip breakfast a lot as well. I'm just never hungry til about 3 or 4 hours after I wake up, and if I do eat it, I often end up skipping lunch. I always have that voice in my head though that say "skipping meals is bad". I've consistently lost weight and have never felt better, so I don't think it's the end of the world as long we are still getting the nutrients we need. emoticon

    I often skip breakfast and find that works best for me too! Since I started training for a 10K I've tried to put more effort into eating breakfast, but it's a struggle and I still eat really light. But I find good ol' coffee and cream works really well and it allows me to eat more for lunch and dinner.
