During my school time there was milk for us in a Standard-Breakfast: a Cup with warm. It was a compromise. My parents wanted to send my two sisters and me on an empty stomach out of the house, but Hunger we had in the morning never. The milk was of the lowest common denominator, we were able to agree: they filled the stomach, delivering nutrients, and was quickly drunk.

I did not understand even then why I should eat in the morning – without Hunger or appetite. But I questioned not the Dogma. The saying about the Breakfast as the main meal was not only me but a whole Generation of adolescents taught. Who eats Breakfast, brings its metabolism in a mess, gets in the course of the day, cravings, eats too much and finally, it was said.

Who eat Breakfast takes more calories to

This Thesis has been put to the test. Proved you could never be. At the end of January, a study that speaks to this view, conflict appeared in the prestigious British Medical Journal (BMJ). The main thrust of the evaluation: There is currently no evidence that people are on the increase, if you let the Breakfast fail. Or that regular Breakfast could lose with a eat in the Morning effective weight. On the contrary, Breakfast took in an average daily 260 kilo calories more than people who skipped Breakfast.

The team of researchers at Monash University from the analysis, two conclusions are likely to be, at least for Breakfast Fans surprisingly: fasting in the Morning could be a good method, the daily calorie intake limit. And: doctors should be careful not to promote the Breakfast as an important part of a diet. Indeed, it could have the opposite effect.

where is the Breakfast-myth of the most important meal of the day? This question, the British epidemiologist Tim Spector goes in a text accompanying the study. Spector eats like Breakfast, best yogurt, Kefir, nuts, seeds and fruit, as he revealed to the Portal “Science of us”. And yet, he reported, from good reasons, to let Breakfast fall out. His findings on these points:

According to Spector, there is “adequate evidence” that a waiver of the Breakfast can be a useful strategy to lose weight. Who leaves in the morning, Breakfast, eat at noon. However, that doesn’t make up for the saved calories from the Morning. One of the main reasons for the Breakfast Dogma is, according to Spector in a misinterpretation of observational studies. From these studies shows that obese people more likely to skip meals than thin people. Now, one could draw the conclusion that it was unhealthy to miss meals. According to Spector, there are for the connection but for a different reason: “Obese people had often tried to make a diet, and after a binge they felt rather guilty and waived a meal”, he reported in the BMJ.At the same time Spector emphasized, however, that not all people from fasting in the Morning can benefit. “Some people are programmed to prefer to eat earlier in the day, others later,” writes Spector. It may be that this phenomenon was due to the personal metabolism. There is simply no default, the fit to each individual life style. Instead, he advises, to approach the topic in a playful way and to experiment: do I really Need always a Breakfast or can I leave it be?

Today I know that I don’t need Breakfast and have more confidence in my body. Most of the time I Wake up in the morning without Hunger, drink a Cup of black coffee and drive into the office. In the canteen, I’ll get some fruit or a banana. Nuts I always have on hand, preferably Cashews or walnuts.

Even if it is difficult: These pancakes are made from white flour and thus full of empty calories. should Maple syrup contains too much sugar and the Bacon is because of its amount of saturated fatty acids is unhealthy.


I don’t consider the fruit and nuts as a mandatory program, but as an offer. I should get mid-morning Hunger, I quickly put something Healthy on Hand. Just as well, but there are also days where I’m up to the lunch break, nothing to eat. Simply because I don’t need it.

The topic of Breakfast is sure to be highly individual: There are people in need in the morning, just eat something – because you are working physically hard, uncomfortable feel, chronically ill, or simply not “” would work. Also in children there is largely consensus that you should eat Breakfast, because this promotes the concentration and the psychological well-being.

There are many good reasons for a Breakfast, but also those who speak against it. It is important to find the way that is proven and works.
