    If you don't like typical breakfast foods, you might consider Asian breakfast.

    If you don't like it, why would you eat it? Just skip it.

    There is no reason you need to push yourself to eat breakfast, unless you find yourself getting hungry or weak later and have no time to eat then. Even in that case, a protein bar, for example could tide you over.

    Forget the whole "breakfast is the most important meal of the day" crap. It's true that filling up the proverbial gas tank before a long trip is useful but it isn't absolutely necessary as long as you fill up at some point.

    That is more likely a better explanation for breakfast. Some people must have it and others do just fine without it.

    Myself for example. I get up quite early, around 4:00 AM and don't eat something until around 9:00 AM. I typically don't feel hungry until later in the morning and that's on top of going to the local swimming pool and "water walking" for upwards of 2 hours 5 days a week.

    My wife is the same. She's usually up around 6:00 AM and doesn't actually eat until after 9:00 AM or later.

    Breakfast is technically the first meal you eat, doesn't matter if it's 6 am or 6 pm or what foods you choose. Listen to your body and eat nutritious foods that you enjoy when you are hungry.

    IF I hate something I dont eat it. Having said that, what dont you like about eating breakfast? But since breakfast is just a label for "eating food", you hate food??

    Same! 2 cups of coffee and I’m good until lunch

    I hate it too! But if I skip it outright I always get hungry before lunch. I like to "drink" my breakfast by having Kefir (like yogurt) so that it's super quick and easy, and doesn't feel like food lol. If I skip that, I'll usually bring an apple or something to have as a mid-morning snack.

    What don't you like about breakfast? Is it the typical foods or eating at that time of day? If it is the foods, then eat something else like you would have for lunch or dinner. Eat whatever you want. If it is the time of day, then don't eat until later like others have said.

    ^^ This.

    OP, if you'd like to eat something in the morning, do it. Just because we label the morning hours of the day we eat "breakfast" does not dictate what the food is.

    If you are not a breakfast person, save your calories for later in the day. I hate eating early in the morning. A cup of coffee and I am good to go till noon. Don't fall victim to the "shoulds".... of weight loss. The same thing doesn't work for everyone. We are all wired differently, and what might be "right" for one person may not be "right" for you. Good luck on your journey!!

    Breakfast literally means breaking your fast...whatever your first meal of the day is is technically breakfast...that being said I don’t eat traditional breakfast foods - I may have chicken and vegetables; or barley (on my higher carb days)

    Once a week I sit down for an hour and make 5-7 mason jars of salad

    I use head lettuce - spinach - kale- bok choy - raddish- celery- carrots etc

    and SOME TYPE OF BEAN Chic peas - five bean - kidney beans etc

    I us and olive oil and apple cider home made vinegar

    In order to keep everything crunchy put your sald dressing in the mason jar first - then add the ingredients you want in - make sure the salad stays on the top

    When you are ready shake the jar so the dressing is mixed and voila

    a tasty salad that is crispy and fast.

    Usually I eat it for breakfast adding an egg - back bacon or some other type of protein Normally I am full till dinner

    I've been told by the dietitian, nutritionist & doctors (pcp, gastastral & cardiologist) to "eat breakfast". UGH!!! 😣


    Our bodies need the energy (food) to burn throughout the day. It's best to eat 5 to 6 small meals to keep the proper fuel burning in our bodies, just like keeping a log on the fire to keep it burning. When we sleep, our bodies are at rest & the fire turns to ambers or goes out & needs to be rekindled in the morning.


    😊 Sorry so lengthy ~ but ~ Hope this helps much better then all of the remarks to just skip breakfast or use those calories later in the day. 👍

    Your dietitian and nutritionists are stuck in the 90's... There is no physical reason to eat breakfast (outside of a couple of medical conditions). You also don't need to eat 5-6 meals to 'keep the fires burning' - our metabolisms are running 24/7 - if your metabolism stops running ('the fire goes out') then eating frequently will be the least of your worries. Our bodies have evolved to store fat when we eat excess calories and to burn fat when we don't - constantly eating does not change that nor does it keep the metabolism 'revved' up.
