Yes, you can eat pancakes

That sounds like blasphemy, doesn't it?

The truth is, your body needs carbs, especially early in the day.

Carbs are energy. Now when you eat your carbs at night when you're not going to do anything to burn them off, THEN carbs are turned into fat to store for energy later.

When you get up in the morning, your body is in a fasting state.

Breakfast = break the fast. You've got to get your body running.

Give it a jumpstart.

The ideal breakfast would include protein, carbs, fresh fruit, fruit juice, and coffee or green tea. Take your vitamins and you're off to a great start! All cylinders are firing.

What happens when you don't eat enough for breakfast?

Your metabolism stays in slow mode, which means you stay in slow mode.

It also means that you're going to be hungry, and good food probably won't be as available. So what happens? You grab whatever is handy - candy, pop, mc-whatever, chips.... but since all of that stuff is empty calories, you'll stay hungry. That cycle will continue all day.

So which is better? 500, 600, even 700 calories for breakfast, or a thousand empty calories that do nothing for you throughout the day?

If you're going to make pancakes, make them yourself. It's not hard – and you won't be eating all those extra chemicals. You'll find the recipe in the Breakfast Recipes section.

Add some fruit or pure maple syrup for added benefits. You can read about those in the A-Z Food Listings.

Breakfast Myth Busted!
