Do You Eat Breakfast?

There's a reason why everyone says that breakfast is the most important meal of the day: because there's a lot of evidence that it is. Studies show that people who eat breakfast regularly weigh less than those who don't, and other research has shown that eating soon after waking can help boost your metabolism.

Even so, it's not always so easy to make a healthy choice on a hectic morning. Hitting the snooze button one too many times, forgetting to prep your smoothie the night before, or just not feeling hungry can make it easier to skip your morning meal. What's your a.m. habit? Do you normally wait until midmorning or lunch to eat, or are you a breakfast devotee?

I take Levothyroxine and it says to take it on an empty stomach 30 min to 1 hour before breakfast. When my doctor first put me on it she advised me to stay closer to the hour mark to let it fully kick in.

I've been on Thyroid replacement for 20+ years. I was never told not to eat. Is there a reason?

I have to wait an hour after taking my thyroid pill, but I always eat at least a little something otherwise I don't have any energy!
