[Updated March 9th] Thanks to Darya Pino from SummerTomato.com, Ben Greenfield of BenGreenfieldFitness.com, and Gloria Tsang of Healthcastle.com, the folks at Vokle.com, and all of you who joined us for our live round-table on breakfast. It was a fascinating discussion! For those of you who might be interested in looking at some of the primary research that we discussed, I’ve posted links to those studies below.
The Topic: Debunking Breakfast
We’ve all heard that breakfast is the most essential meal of the day and that eating breakfast is a critical part of successful weight management. Yet a new study in Nutrition Journal finds that eating a smaller breakfast–or no breakfast at all–may be an effective way to reduce calories.
We’re going to sort through the research and talk about what it does (or doesn’t) mean for you in a lively 45-minute discussion and we hope you’ll join in with your comments and questions as well. This special video event will be broadcast live right here on the website. I hope you’ll join us!
