Do you always eat breakfast? or most of the time skip it? I myself, I dont always eat breakfast. But I never skip lunch and dinner. How about you? Do you find it a MUST to eat your breakfast like lunch and dinner? Share your thoughts.

Breakfast is very important as we will be fasting the whole night and evacuating everything in the morning. I do not plan my breakfast, I have few biscuits and a glass of milk, thats it.

No, I never eat breakfast, I can not stand to eat anything in the morning. I just have 6 + cups of coffee, thats my breakfast. I might have a snack or something to munch on for lunch but nothing big. And for dinner I always make sure I have a healthy meal.

Well, i am a diabetic, so i have to eat breakfast. i usually just have something like cottage cheese, though. i am usually not hungry in the mornings. Sometimes i am, though...like when i have a late breakfast. Then i will skip lunch since i basically had breakfast and lunch in one...BRUNCH! i know it is not good for me to do, but i don't really care.

I do always eat breakfast, but under duress. I hate eating breakfast, and when I was younger, I never used to eat it. The only reason I do is because supposedly it is the most important meal of the day. The only time I really enjoy breakfast is when I have some leftover pizza waiting in the fridge for me, lol!

I never skip breakfast. It may sometimes happen that I have to miss lunch but when it comes to breakfast I never skip it. The word " BREAKFAST " explains the reason. Breakfast as it means you are breaking a fast having a input after a lonf break of 10 - 12 hours. So you should never skip it. It is proved to cause many health problems , the most important of that being ' Stomach ULSER '. It is said that you should have breakfast like a King , Lunch like a minister and dinner like a Beggar. This too explain the significance of a proper breakfast. In this busy schedule , many happen to skip it unaware of its health effects. If not at the home , atleast have in the office or during the journey. Some input in necessary , never skip it. Have a happy meal !!...Smiles Good Luck !!!

Previously i used to eat all day long, no meals, just snacks all day long until a couple of hours before dinner as we eat late on weekdays to accommodate my husband's schedule (he doesn't get home till just after 8), and i wouldn't start until about noon... But, this last month or so when i get up in the morning i'm so famished for some reason that bright and early 5:30 in the morning when i get up with my hubby to shoe him off to work i make myself a full breakfast instantly, i'm just starved! otherwise i still do the snacking.

most times i don't, i'm always in a hurry for work. sometimes, i have coffee, sometimes i do eat if i like what i see and smell on the table. there are also days when i can go without eating lunch. i don't usually take snacks either, just coffee or tea or hot water. but when this happens i have to take dinner. sometimes i don't eat dinner when i'm fuller at lunch. i have a crazy eating habit that some of my colleagues don't understand. but i'm okay with it, no big deal. i eat when i'm hungry, and i don't if i'm not. i've kept my ideal weight anyway and confrotable with my body, although there's still room for improvement.

I skipped breakfast today, but I try to eat it everyday. I usually skip lunch and have a huge dinner. I try to have 2-3 snacks throughout the day so that I can not get too hungry.

i usually skip breakfast since i was a kid. but most doctors and nutritionists would say it's the most important meal of the day. only now, do i realize that when my hyperacidity attacks. i've noticed that when i don't eat breakfast and skip to lunch and dinner, i easily get hungry in between kunch and dinner. even after dinner.

I don't really like eating breakfast, but i find that on the days that I do eat breakfast, I tend to eat less at lunch and dinner time. On the days I skip breakfast, I tend to eat more at lunchtime and make poor snack choices. I am reading Dr Phil's weightloss book and he says that we MUST eat breakfast everyday. I am also reading French Women Don't Get Fat and The Best Life Diet. So far, am I am thinking that I can handle the Best Life Diet best. :)

I believe they are telling the right thing.It keeps us really alert and wide awake when we are performing our job/work in the office, in house or in the school.I guess from now on eating breakfast is a must and it is the most important meal of the day.Thank you for sharing your thoughts…

I always eat breakfast but not say same about lunch, as after heavy breakfast, no space left for lunch and i think lunch timing is too early so i skip once in a while. I must say that dinner should be at proper time and i try to take dinner at or before schudule time because if there is delay in dinner then its clearly effects my nextday/.

To be completely honest, breakfast is an almost never occurance for me. I very rarely will eat anything for breakfast as I am just usually not that hungry in the morning.

Never i skip my breakfast nor my parents allow me to move out of home without taking breakfast.Since its like a routine duty i always take it in time along with a glass of milk to keep my day energetic till afternoon lunch. It depends upon the eating habits of every person which differs from one to another.I have some friends who take only a cup of tea or coffee in the morning and remain with it till afternoon.They are practiced to it.

I only eat if I'm hungry..and some days I'm just not in the mood to eat. Most of the time I don't eat breakfast and usually I'll eat lunch and dinner, sometimes only dinner. It's not like I'm trying to be uber skinny, that's not it. I'm not a skeleton, and I'm not overweight..and I never really suffer because I eat or don't eat. *shrugs* I just eat when I wanna.
