The Simple Dollar Weekly Roundup: Breakfast Edition

I try to eat breakfast each day, but I try to not eat it right when I get up. Instead, I wait until I actually feel hungry for it (mid-morning, around 9:30) and then eat a late lunch.

I’ve found this works really well for me. It actually results in me eating a smaller lunch than I otherwise would, but moving that lunch later results in no increase in my hunger at dinner time.

In other words, eating a breakfast but waiting until I’m actually hungry seems to significantly reduce my food intake for the day. Works for me!

Are You Able to be Happy for Friends and Family That are Wildly Successful? This is a subject I should deal with in its own post. Jealousy is a really difficult thing for both people involved. I’ve experienced both halves of the equation and I’ve learned that jealousy does nothing but ruin otherwise valuable relationships. For the most part, the people that have things that you’re jealous of either earned it or they’ll lose it soon enough, so why bother? (@ darwin’s money)

    I don’t think eating breakfast until you are hungry is a good idea. Other meals might be okay but not breakfast. It is suggested that you eat in the first hour after you wake up. If not, your body thinks that it won’t get energy in the morning and starts storing fat in your body which messes up the BMI.
