“Breakfast is the most important meal of the day”
If you were to get one dollar every time you hear a doctor, a friend or a neighbor say it…
Maybe you could have enough to go for a 2-week vacation to Hawaii.
Well, not sure about that, but what if I told you that this common advice you hear is a lie?…
Because in reality, there isn’t a specific meal you need to have per se.
Not in the way you’re thinking, at least.
Think about it this way.
If breakfast would be the most important meal of the day, why is it that people who do intermittent fasting can “easily” skip it while still managing to not faint in the middle of the day?
That’s just an example, and it definitely doesn’t mean that IF is the best option for you.
My point is…
The only important meal of your day is the one that allows you to not go hungry or starve yourself.
If that’s breakfast, then by all means.
If that’s a snack before lunch, then make sure you’re eating it.
…or maybe it’s having something for dinner.
I don’t know.
What I do know is that what matters is that you make sure you do not follow all these “common advice” you hear out there and that you are eating what it’s best for you… while also getting you closer to your goals.
The last thing you want to do is starve yourself when cutting calories…
especially when you could have avoided it.
Plus, you need to take all your macronutrients in every meal (ideally). If that’s 3 meals for you, great… but it’s not an issue if you need 6-7 meals per day.
One isn’t better than the other one in any way.
But one can be worse for you than the other if it doesn’t make you feel like you’re not even dieting at all.
