Hi again, I just read this article on Yahoo news: http://www.thepostgame.com/blog/training-day/201212/greatest-weight-loss-myth-ever-told

Very interesting info about breakfast and exercise. Food for thought, so to speak.

I think this article was written by some kind of nut case
I was never a breakfast eater when I was obese. I started eating breakfast after I succesfully made a cut off time like 7 PM and then when I woke up in the morning I was starveing LOL
there maybe something there for people who eat late at night maybe breakfast would be bad ...
Hugs Judy:)

I agree Judy. I would never skip breakfast because I, too, am always starving in the morning, but I think the lower cal. breakfast plan makes sense. Also, I'd like to see more research regarding the difference between exercising before or after a meal.

At any rate, the author definitely goes against all that I've read about habits of successful maintainers. Just thougt it was interesting and I'm always eager to read new research. I teach critical thinking skills to college freshmen so I guess it is in my blood!

Hi Again Debbie also this article is really an ad for his new book. if you read the test sunjects they are all Men active men and they were eating 30% more calories than normal there is no secret there extra cals will cause weight gain and problems in your body ... exerciseing before eating is probably good for a lot of people especially diabetics. My sister has diabetes and she allways takes her morning walk before breakfast she was never obese so her diabetes was inherited from my Mom not caused by obesity she is still slim and trim as allways

Thanks for sharing that article. My daughter recently shared something she had heard about the need to eat "something" when you get up to get your metabolism revved and started. It seems like maybe this has something to do with the "starvation response", when you eat a small amount and don't lose weight.

I don't like a large breakfast, but I like a small amount of lean protein and veggies and/or fruit. Totally avoid white carbs.

I think when people are just getting started on their journeys it is confusing, but I think ANYTHING that gets people thinking and doing something about their health is good.

Judy,

I am somewhat of a late dinner eater but I still eat a small breakfast. I know this has helped me not overeat later in the day.

When I was on the Atkin's diet, years ago, I used to eat eggs and bacon for breakfast and lost weight but gained it back. That was not a healthy journey, just a method to lose weight quickly and no real plan to maintain the weightloss.

Hi Barb nice to see you online again I eat a small breakfast most days and occasionally eat eggs for breakfast as you know my journey is based on balanced nutrition and exercise.
I really don;t rule anything out just limit portions most of the time I did get carried away by my cookies this year , I accually gained a couple of pounds . I am in the proccess of removeing those extra unwelcome pounds now //
If you read this article closely you will see the men who exercised first before breakfat hardly gained any weight didn;t lose weight only gained some so exercise before breakfast maybe a help if you also limit calories... maintaining is the real goal for most of us I think learning the things you need to do to maintain is 80% of the proccess..
Hugs Judy:)
