This is directed to those who REFUSE to eat breakfast! You will not lose weight by eliminating those calories, in fact, you will probably consume more calories during subsequent meals. People who skip breakfast may have higher fasting LDL levels and a decrease in insulin sensitivity. Why is that a problem? Decreased insulin sensitivity may contribute to hypertension and stroke; high LDL levels increase the risk of heart attacks. WOW! All this from missing breakfast. So, go make an egg white omelet, have a slice of toasted whole wheat bread with almond butter. Breakfast doesn't have to be elaborate, just be sure it contains a protein, a little good fat, and carbs. Bon appetit!
