What Do You Mean You Don’t Eat Breakfast?

Got a great question over on the DPM Facebook page yesterday asking if I really only eat breakfast once a week.

The answer is a big fat yes.

The world has gone mad.

Well, I would’ve thought that a few years ago.

Isn’t it supposed to be ‘the most important meal of the day’.

Really, the most important meal of the day is the next one you’re going to eat to be honest.

Why?

Because you can’t control what you did or didn’t eat in the last meal.

That is done and dusted.

BUT

You can control what you are going to eat with your next meal.

By making the smart choice and planning ahead.

So back to why I don’t eat breaky apart from my Sunday Protein Pancakes I gave you the inside mail on yesterday.

I was introduced a few years ago to something called intermittent fasting.

In fact I originally rubbished it.

Yep, much like I used to eat Weet-Bix for breakfast back in the day and think a good lunch was a ‘healthy’ sandwich, and thought you needed grains and all this other ‘no grain-paleo’ talk was nonsense.

Thought this was another fad that would come and go.

Then, just like I changed my food habits and turfed the Weet-Bix and sandwiches and did a bit of research into the topic, I did the same with intermittent fasting and realised there was actually something that was worth looking further into.

And tried it out.

If you don’t know what I’m on about – intermittent fasting is simply going without food for a certain period of time (usually 15-16 hours is recommended) but still keeping up plenty of water. Black coffee or herbal/black teas are allowed too.

It sounds like a hell of a long time I hear you say.

Especially for someone like me who needs to eat every 2-3 hours to keep my metabolism high I hear you say.

That’s what I thought too.

Truth is it’s easier than I thought it would ever be.

And the ‘keep your metabolism going’ thing is a crock.

See, you’re asleep for basically half that time anyway and it just means after dinner the previous night you eat lunch the next day.

Now, the only disclaimer I have on this is I don’t recommend it initially if you are starting training and eating the DPM way after a period of inactivity.

I only recommend it after you have been making exercise a regular part of your routine for at least a couple of months.

Why?

So we can set in stone some good, smart habits and not introduce too many things at once as that just leads to information overload and not much action.

Plus, I find you respond better then.

The main thing, as per usual, is listen to your body. If you need to eat = like really need to eat – then eat.

Cheers,
Daniel

PS – had another good question yesterday about bacon- stay tuned for my 2 cents on that tomorrow
