    Ohhh my personal favourite: Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, you must eat breakfast to kickstart your metabolism!
    I actually find that to be true (for my body, due to diabetes/what I know about hypoglycemia being deadly). YMMV, of course, but I would never try to explain breakfast’s importance to my friend from before who says that food and water are (pretty much) only to be used as rewards for a workout well done.

    That the way to a slim waist is sit ups and a waist trainer. My ex used to tell me those things work because he saw some girls on instagram do that. Hence, ex.
