It's Good To Miss Breakfast (sometimes) - Runnersworld rules for eating right

Hundreds of diabetics have complained online that their dietitian has demanded they eat at least 50 grams of carbs for breakfast every day. They are right to complain.

If you are going to spend all morning sitting in front of a computer, you don't need a big breakfast. You don't need Atkins style bacon eggs and spinach. And you certainly don't need a big bowl of chaff covered in bran and wheatgerm, as was recommended by Australian dietitians not so long ago. Talk about a hair shirt for your insides. goes further and says you should even skip breakfast on mornings when you are exercising. Tens of thousands of people do this successfully, but they do it in the right circumstances.
It is not going to work unless certain aspects of your health are up to scratch. If you are considering it, learn the details.

Health Department recommendations are designed to be simple, able to be understand by the average 15 year old, and fairly easy to comply with. They are not designed to be the best approach to health.
If you are willing to work for the best results, study the details, and don't accept simple cliches like "never skip breakfast" from your health professionals.
