Metabolism & Breakfast

Breakfast skippers decrease their metabolism by 10%.  People who eat breakfast within 2 hours of waking up increases their metabolism by 3%.  Breakfast skipper tend to develop diabetes earlier in life, especially if they have diabetes in their family.


  1. I know that when I used to skip breakfast, that I did so cause I thought it would help me loose weight. I now know how wrong that thinking is and can say from experience that eating breakfast makes me feel better, and more energized and I know it is better for my health, and now I know why. Thanks once again for your insight and knowledge and your love for that which is right!

  2. Our metabolism is at its best when you wake up. It tends to slow down as you go on throughout the day. Physical Activity will of course speed it up at any point throughout the day. By the end of the day, our metabolism is very low.... so, here's my question: When do MOST Americans eat their largest meals? Right before bed. Sumo Wrestlers only eat ONE time a day...they skip breakfast, lunch, and then eat right before bedtime (and they pig out). We can sure learn something from a Sumo Wrestler! :)
