Breakfast NOT most important meal of the day says Feds

Know that popular saying that “breakfast is the most important meal of the day?”

Contrary to popular belief, eating breakfast isn’t even necessary, according to federal dietary guidelines.

After years of saying that skipping out on breakfast lead to excess body weight, the Center of Nutrition Policy and Promotion has decided to leave that out in their new 2015-2020 Dietary Guidelines for Americans.

For example, eggs, which are a staple breakfast for a lot of people, are reportedly very high in cholesterol.

However, Spartanburg Regional Healthcare System registered dietitian, Kerri Lindberg, disagrees, saying “People who eat breakfast are getting in more nutrients, which is beneficial. People who don’t eat breakfast end up being very hungry at lunchtime and tend to overeat. Breakfast is a good way to get in more nutrients and vitamins, and provide you with more fuel to energize your morning.”
