How Many Breakfasts Do You Eat?

How many breakfasts did you eat today? This may sound like a ridiculous question, but Americans are increasingly consuming several morning meals as opposed to sitting down for one big one, The Associated Press reports.

But it's not like people are enjoying bacon and eggs two or three times a day. "It's breakfast in stages," Liz Sloan, president of Sloan Trends, a food industry consulting group, told the AP. "They'll eat something at home, then stop at Starbucks or a convenience store for coffee and maybe a little snack."

We've been there. When we eat breakfast as soon as we wake up, our stomach is usually growling by around 10:30 a.m., leading us to crave a granola bar or something sweet. And we're not alone -- the number of times Americans snack is expected to rise faster in the morning than during the afternoon or evening, according to the market researcher The NPD Group, the AP says.

So, is this an excuse to start eating four meals a day -- or more? Not so fast. While some health experts recommend eating more, smaller meals rather than fewer, bigger ones, David Levitsky, a professor of nutrition and psychology at Cornell University, says this often packs on calories. "If you reduce everything, that's fine. But that's not what we do," Levitsky tells the AP. "When you add in snacks, you're usually just adding calories."

    I like an egg white omelet with canadian bacon and cheddar at 6am. Cereal and such just don't satisfy me for long. I'll often have a handful of pistachios as a snack around 9am.

    One. Poached egg on whole wheat toast (with butter/margarine), a glass of cranberry juice, and a cup of black tea with soy milk and sugar. I'll have a snack around 10:30, usually another piece of fruit (banana, apple, whatever), but I wouldn't call that a second breakfast, I'd call that what it is: a snack. -_-''

    Breakfast is when you literally break the fast, i.e., the first time you eat in the day (be it morning or whatever) after waking up is your breakfast. The second time you eat that day is NOT a second breakfast, it's just food. -_-''

    I break things up - usually eggs early on then either cereal or fruit with coffee mid morning. Large breakfasts are hard to keep down when you have to ride NYC mass transit

    Damn it, I meant to click on one! aw well. I eat one breakfast. Sometimes two if I'm still hungry, since I like instant meals like oatmeal or cream of wheat at times, but it doesn't do that much good for me, so I may need more to the course, or I get something later on. You're the hungriest when it's breakfast time usually.

    I typically never eat breakfast. I just don't feel hungry in the morning and unfortunately sometimes I get too busy and preoccupied with work that's it's not uncommon for my first meal not to be until 11 or later...

    I only eat one but some Dr's say it is better to more small meals than 3 bigger ones.
