    And, Cathy, you look like you’ve gained three times the pounds that you would ordinarily not do if you rationed out your meals! ;)

    If you really want to save time and money, and probably lose some weight too, defer your eating till later rather than doing it all early. It’s a myth that adults need breakfast and certainly don’t need snacks..

    West coast is beautiful by train, food is excellent and she is having fun. Space is tighter than a ship. I am trying not to be a grump.

    WRONG — skipping breakfast is the worst mistake one can make because it plays havoc with the blood-sugar levels and causes people to overeat later in the day, which is what puts the weight on (it also doesn’t help that most of the people who follow this unhealthful practice are also the ones who never exercise!).

    I cannot believe that people are taking this seriously. It’s a comic, folks!

    LOL I’ve worked with a lot of nutritionists, and not one has ever suggested that needing breakfast was a “myth”. In fact, the earlier you’re done eating for the day, the better (although you certainly don’t want to do it Cathy-style!) As for snacks? Three small meals and 2-3 snacks a day is proven to be best for most bodies. I’m worried about you, Grimma.

    Well for sure Cathy wouldn’t exercise instead of breakfasting – which is what I do more often than not. If I’m hungry I’ll eat before noon, but the idea that we have to eat several times a day whether we’re actually hungry or not is really rather odd.

    As a borderline diabetic, I’ve learned that skipping breakfast is one of the many contributing factors to the tripling of the number of people in the US who have ended up with diabetes. My breakfast is mainly protein and 4 ounces of reduced sugar orange juice; the protein keeps me going till lunch time. When I skipped breakfast, I was famished by 10 am.

    I guess you have to know yourself. I have issues with my blood sugar dropping if I wait too long to eat, so I always eat breakfast. My husband, on the other hand, doesn’t like more than coffee and a toast. Also, if I don’t eat for a while, then I end up eating whatever quick that I can grab, which is usually junky, and that starts a cycle of bad eating until I force myself to stop. I feel better if I eat smaller amounts throughout the day (i.e. snacks), so the 3 meal-a-day thing doesn’t work for me either.

    hello Cathy clan!

    I don’t usually snack but I either eat a light breakfast or an early lunch. My problem is finding time and energy to exercise.

    Bingo. I AM a Type 2 diabetic (with heart disease on top of it), and one of the first things I was taught was NEVER to skip a meal, especially breakfast. It’s also something that any reputable nutritionist, doctor, nurse, or personal trainer will tell you.

    I’m on Weight Watchers — been “at goal” for 5 years and I eat breakfast and numerous snacks during the day.

    Oh, for Pete’s sake, Cathy. Have fun waddling into the office today …

    Personally, I have to eat three meals a day. They aren’t always at the same time, but without them, I tend to crash.

    HI, MOM. Hello, “Cathy” Clan.

    Breakfast is the most important meal of the day for me…however, if I don’t have a healthy snack before meals, my eating goes downhill rapidly…welcome to the land of Carbs…but they Taste sooo good! The problem being there that they add up…right on my hips! Fortunately, I have an active Irish Setter girl who Must have her daily one-hour walk every day (unless there is a Noah-like deluge going on!). ;)
