BRUNCH versus Breakfast and Lunch
• United States

I really think it has more to do with how active we are. Breakfast became considered the most important meal of the day when the men would have to get up and do farm work or chop down trees or heard animals of do real heavy physical manual labor all day. They would eat a huge breakfast to have enough energy to make it to dinner time. If you eat 6 eggs, 12 pieces of sausage, 4 pieces of toast, and drink a glass or milk and a glass of OJ and sit on your butt all day at your job you are going to end up weighing 300 pounds. I eat a piece of fruit and drink a glass of milk for breakfast then eat a small lunch a mid afternoon snack and decent dinner and have a night time snack of like a bowl of cereal or pretzels or something not loaded down with fat. I have all the energy I need for my day doing it that way.
