When I was a child, I was always a cereal eater. It was the only food that always came out of the blender, and I can remember trying so hard to get cereal in a regular cup that I would occasionally get it in the bowl. When I got older, I found that I was eating more cereal, and that was because I was busy. I started a job a few years ago, and my busy lifestyle shifted to eating breakfast before work instead of having cereal in the morning.
Well, not cereal. I mean, I really like cereal, but I also like to snack on it occasionally, and my snack routine is a lot like my cereal habit. I like to get a cup of cereal and a bag of chocolate-covered almonds. But I also like to eat half a bag of cookies, two chocolate bars, and a handful of dried fruit.
I know it sounds strange, but I actually really like eating cereal after breakfast. It’s filling, it’s a part of my routine, and I can always go back for seconds. There’s just something about it that just works for me.
There’s a big difference between breakfast and dinner, when it comes to the amount of calories you need to burn. You have to eat enough for breakfast to get your metabolism fired up and the rest of the day to allow you to burn those calories. But you don’t have to eat every meal you eat. It’s also true that most people don’t need to eat as much when they do eat. They usually just need to eat healthy snacks.
The problem with the cereal analogy is that we all know that we all eat cereal, and that we all know how many calories we need to burn based on how much we eat each day. So it just feels wrong to compare us to that.
The answer is that we shouldnt eat as much when we eat in order to burn more calories, and we shouldnt eat as little as we do as long as our metabolism is firing. We should have a metabolism that burns calories at a rate that allows us to eat and not feel the need to snack. In fact, it may be healthier to not eat breakfast at all than to eat every meal you eat.
The research is still in to see if we can use the concept of metabolism to create healthy eating habits, but we already agree that it’s better to eat less than we do.
In addition to the obvious, if you do not eat breakfast, you will gain weight, and as you lose weight, you will gain muscle. This is because there is a metabolic cost for the additional weight, and to gain muscle you must expend more calories, so the more you gain, the less you will burn.
A person with a healthy metabolism burns about 3,000 calories an hour, which equates to about 10 pounds of muscle mass per year. A person who does not eat breakfast burns about 3,000 calories an hour, which equates to about 5 pounds of muscle mass per year.
To gain muscle you must expend more calories, and the more calories you eat, the less you burn. The same is true for weight gain. A person who eats a lot of food burns more calories each day than a person who doesn’t eat a lot of food. I know you’re probably thinking of all the carbs you’re eating. They aren’t even very bad for you.
