I don’t eat breakfast. Well, I do, but I eat it at noon. I love breakfast food and brunch is one of my favorite things that can ever happen to me. But I don’t like to eat breakfast at breakfast time.
Breakfast is the most important meal of the day? Not for me.
When I wake up, I’m not hungry. The last thing I want to do before 10am is eat. Anything.
Sometimes I don’t eat lunch. Or I skip dinner.
In fact, most days, I only eat 1 1/2 meals. Sometimes I’ll have 2 meals. I guess I just don’t get hungry.
I recently read an article that suggested people only eat when they are hungry, which is what I do. But that’s only one article suggesting that.
It seems like every other article I’ve ever read and every doctor or nutritionist giving advice all advocate the same thing: people should eat several small meals throughout the day.
When I was in college we had dedicated nutritionists constantly coaching us on how to eat properly to stay healthy and they all advocated eating 3 small meals a day. Or more, depending on how active we were. Whenever you watch a show like The Biggest Loser or some other fitness show it’s the same advice.
So, maybe I’m doing it wrong. Maybe I should be eating at regular times on a schedule. Maybe I should be eating 3 times a day instead of 1 or 2.
I usually do these experiments for a week, but to really see the effects of this change on my lifestyle I’m going to go for 2 weeks.
For the next 2 weeks, I will eat 3 meals a day at the same time each day.
