Should I eat donuts or nothing for breakfast?

You Asked: Donuts or Nothing?

You're asking and I'm answering...

Dear FitSugar, I know you've been talking a lot about how we should eat breakfast to get our metabolism going, but what if my only options are unhealthy donuts? Is it better to eat the donut or skip it altogether? The reason I am asking is because my office orders donuts every Friday morning for our meeting.

Leave it to my super fabulous and smart readers to find a loop hole in my breakfast eating plan. Typically, as you know, I would say to eat breakfast no matter what. However, donuts offer a lot in terms of calories and saturated fat, and a little (if any) in terms of nutrition so it may be best to skip it. I know it sucks to be the only person not chowing down on donuts, but try to eat something healthy before the meeting or hold off until after the meeting. Plus, eating one or two (or three) donuts could leave you crashing in about an hour or so.

For next week, ask whoever does the ordering to order some fruit or yogurt too, so you can eat with everyone else — chances are you are not the only one looking for something healthy.
