Breakfast is definitely the most important meal of the day, and as the saying goes, eat breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince, and dinner like a pauper.But how accurate is this information? And who follows it this way? According to trainer to the stars David Higgins, who has whipped Margot Robbie, Samuel L. Jackson, and Colin Firth into shape, this message is totally out of fashion now.
“Sometimes you don’t need to have breakfast,” Higgins told INSIDER. “The whole ‘breakfast is the most important meal of the day’ thing is a 1940s marketing campaign to sell eggs. That’s what we’ve all been raised to believe.”
Some may get really tensed that skipping the first meal of the day could lead to increased intake of food later in the day, but studies have shown this isn’t the case.And holding your meal until later can be really beneficial to your waistline, this is what lots of celebs do, swearing by intermittent fasting – where you get to eat all your day’s food in a bracket of eight hour.
So instead of settling down for cereals at 7am, don’t let any food pass your lips until 11-12, and then don’t even think of eating between 7-and-8pm. This has been proven to reduce appetite and decrease eating opportunities.
Not everyone nods their head with this fact, with nutritionist Rhiannon Lambert, a spokesperson for The Association for Nutrition, elaborating a healthy meal in the morning has lots of benefits.
“Breakfast can be an excellent way to get a dose of nutrition for the day ahead, increasing intake of fibre (90 per cent of the U.K. are not hitting the recommended 25g a day), protein, and vitamins and minerals such as iron, vitamin C, and in some cases vitamin D,” she said.“Depending on the individual, a good breakfast can increase your energy by adding fuel to the tank and helping your brain for a productive morning ahead.”
