‘Breakfast is the most important meal of the day’. ‘Don’t skip breakfast’ are frequently repeated health advisories.
But breakfast technically is just the first meal of the day.
Intermittent fasting is now recognised as the best wellness program. And a sustainable fasting schedule is made easier by skipping the morning breakfast.
Actually, morning breakfast is a difficult meal, if prepared from scratch. As most people generally are most busy in the morning.
That’s where the ready mades make their entry and they are big business, formidable. Naturally, breakfast then becomes the most advertised group of products.
On their own, they can’t get even an F grade in quality. That’s why a psychological war is required. Hence the term ‘breakfast is most important’.
Unfortunately some health experts are compensated for repeating the slogan.
The truth could be very different.
