No Breakfast is Good Breakfast!

You may have heard of ‘no news is good news’. What about ‘no breakfast is good breakfast’? If you haven't heard of this, let me ask you one question. What are the reasons you get off a bed?

You may say that the alarm clock rings; time to go to work; time to go to school; time to go to the airport; or time to go do something.

What if it is on a holiday that you don’t really need to wake up on time to do anything? What are the reasons you get off a bed when you don’t really want to?

Well, I didn’t close my curtain well enough, the sun was shinning on me; there were noises around; my back pain didn’t allow me to stay in bed any longer; or weather was too cold, my heater was out of order….the list goes on… Have you ever been told by your stomach to wake up? Because you are so hungry that you need to get off the bed and eat? I think these are the only group of people who really need a breakfast. Are you one of them?

Today, I have a day off. I have no lunch/dinner booking, so I decided to do something unusual – I went to the McDonald’s. It has the best breakfast deal in town (starting HK$13) so I went there. While I was enjoying my sausage muffin, I had a crazy idea as to ask a few people around me ‘why are you here?’ Some looked at me as if I were a mad woman. But the fact was, nobody said that they were hungry. It was just a habit or they love McDonald’s or they came because it was cheap.

Eat breakfast as a habit, can that be changed? Why are we eating when we are not hungry?

Weight loss is a hot topic nowadays. People tend to spend huge money in SPA, diet programs and expensive gym membership without realizing that the change of a little habit can do the job – no breakfast.

In fact, many people looking to lose weight are reluctant in changing their eating habit. Why don’t we take a simple step to begin with? Let me put it this way – 'no breakfast is good breakfast'. If you could switch to a ‘no breakfast’ lifestyle, then you are on your mark to start an IF lifestyle. IF simply stand for Intermittent Fasting, Intensity Fitness and Instant Freedom, according to Mike O’Donnell, author of 2 Meal Solution.

I notice Mike O’Donnell has newly developed a E-course for those who want to lose weight with a simple lifestyle. The good news is that his E-course is free. Take a look at Mike's website and see if you want to enroll for his free E-course.

Fasting Quotes

You may wonder who else has fasted.

In the weight loss industry, celebrities always talk about how they stay slim, stay young, stay healthy.... Whether they've been paid to say so, I don't know.

However I've just come across some fasting quotes from some previous fasters. I don't think they've been paid to say what they said. Here they are:

"I fast for greater physical and mental efficiency."--Plato, 428-348 B.C., Greek student of Socrates and teacher of Aristotle; helped lay foundations of Western philosophy

"The best of all medicines are rest and fasting." --Benjamin Franklin, 1706-1790, American founding father, statesman and inventor (bifocal glasses, iron furnace stove and lightning rod)

"America badly needs to go on a diet. It should do something drastic about excessive, unattractive, life-threatening fat. It should get rid of it in the quickest possible way, and this is by fasting." --Allan Cott, M.D., author of Fasting-The Ultimate Diet
