What is the absolute worst thing you can have for breakfast? Doughnuts and some fancy coffee drink from Dunkin? A McGriddle meal from McDonalds? A grand slam from Denny’s? Or my personal favorite, the three egg special from Fat Jacks?
Perhaps, surprisingly, none of these calorie and fat bombs would qualify as the worst breakfast you can eat. That distinction goes to something much smaller: nothing.
Breakfast has long been called the most important meal of the day, and for good reason. When you wake up in the morning, your body is literally in starvation mode. If you don’t get some fuel into your body soon after waking up, your metabolic fire will go out and the amount of calories you burn throughout the day will be significantly reduced.
Now this doesn’t give you the green light to go through the drive-thru every morning, but please make sure you get something before you leave for work in the morning. Whether it’s eggs and toast or just a banana with your coffee, something is better than nothing. And you really need to have something.
