Do You Eat Breakfast Every Day?

A recent study illustrated what every mother has told her children over the ages: Breakfast really is the most important meal of the day. More accurately put, eating breakfast helps with weight maintenance even in the volatile population of teenagers. The study followed more than 2,000 teens for over five years, and the teens who consistently ate breakfast were proportionately five pounds lighter.

I think breakfast is the most important meal for a variety of reasons and maintenance of weight is surely one of them.

Now what I would like to know is . . .

I try to eat breakfast everyday, today I sipped it because I was in a hurry. But I love to eat breakfast, keeps me going for the first part of the day and I don't feel hungry very early. Breakfast is good yum :-)

I kind of have it hammered into my head that "breakfast is the most important meal of the day!". thanks, 90's family sitcoms :)

I completely agree on the importance of eating breakfast everyday: it’s the one thing people who lose weight and keep it off do most consistently. Oatmeal is particularly beneficial for people with high cholesterol, because oatmeal contains beta-glucan, a fiber proven to lower cholesterol by as much as 23 percent.

I love breakfast!!! At my office we have monthly birthday potluck brunches. I'm so excited about the quiche I'm making this month. Most days I only eat a breakfast bar or english muffin that I can manage while driving into work.

Yes! Even if I am not entirely hungry I make sure to put something in my belly (usually whole wheat toast, oatmeal, egg whites or a whey protein smoothie) so that I am not ravenous by lunchtime! It works in keeping my metabolism up and my weight down!

I used to be alot better about it...everday coffee and oatmeal. My commute is longer now so I'm running out the time for breakfast.

I don't eat breakfast until I'm hungry, which sometimes isn't til 11 or 12. I don't see the point in eating when I'm not hungry yet, so I just listen to my tummy and when it tells me to eat, that's when I eat my oatmeal and apple. It's a pretty good system, actually. terrormisu--I seriously ate the same breakfast as you did when I was nutritionally ignorant. Poptarts and a Frappuccino most days. Sometimes in the winter it was 2 donuts and a big cappuccino with lots of sugar in it. That wasn't so good...I was always starving by about 10 am by eating all that sugar at once.

I hardly ever miss breakfast, unless it's my day off and I sleep until 11am-1pm - ish. I love Raisin Bran!! or I mix Coco Puffs, Captain Crunch Peanut Butter, and Rice Krispies together. It's Yummy!!! :D

i don't and part of the reason is because i hate to sit at my desk all day and feel a rock of food in my stomach. lately i have been eating a banana in the morning so i guess that's breakfast. i'm tired of getting muscle cramps so i figure that the bananas have to help.

Every day. It's my favorite meal. =) Back when I was nutritionally ignorant, I ate a Poptart and one of those bottled mocha frappiccinos for breakfast everyday. Then I had phase over a summer where I had a massive Otis Spunkmeyer blueberry muffin with the mocha. Next I had a phase where I simply had an apple. This phase was no fun at all. Now, I have much healthier breakfasts. Kashi cereal (the Beart to Heart Toasted Oat is my favorite, but Golean Crunch and Vive are yummy too), blueberries, strawberries, sliced bananas, and vanilla Silk with a cup of coffee mixed with a little vanilla silk, no sugar. Yumm.

I used to skip breakfast, but now I eat it every morning. It's supposed to be the biggest meal of the day.

Yes, I always eat breakfast. Even if I'm not feeling that hungry (which happens sometimes), I'll at least eat a yogurt or a banana. If I don't, I feel sick mid-morning.

definitely. I enjoy breakfast and couldn't function without it. I skip lunch quite a bit though...sometimes I just don't have the time or quite frankly I am not hungry so I just have a non fat sugar free latte and that gets me through to dinner usually. But we also eat around 6PM so its not that long after my latte around 2. Breakfast for me usually consists of a whole grain bagel and 2 tblsp low fat cream cheese, some grapefruit juice(unsweetened), and decaf. Sometimes if we go out to eat...I have egg beaters or egg white veggie omelette and fruit and a slice of whole wheat or rye toast. Once in a blue moon I will splurge on french toast or pancakes, but usually only once a month or on vacation. Breakfast is too yummy to skip!

I don't eat breakfast until way after I get up, if I eat it at all. I try. Today I have a cucumber for breakfast. Some mornings raisins. I drink coffee and that fills me up

i never eat breakfast because it ususally makes me sick to my stomach to eat so early in the day. By lunch I'm hungry and can eat.

I can't function properly without breakfast! Oatmeal, a banana, and milk is my favorite. I'm ashamed to admit it, but my dorm refrigerator doesn't keep milk very well and i hate coffee, so often times my breakfast at school consists of oatmeal, a banana, and diet coke. :-x

I usually eat a power bar or granola snack but rarely eat cereal or make a breakfast. More like a snack than an actual breakfast.

Sometimes, I do, but sometimes, I just cannot find the time. I know that's bad...trying to change my routine.

Where is the "not every day, but whenever I can" option? I love to eat breakfast whenever I manage to get up early enough to. A nice bagel and cream cheese is great, and on the weekends, a big pancake blowout :)
