Eat breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince, and dinner like a pauper.
Adelle Davis (1904 – 1974)
Breakfast, according to health gurus, is the most important meal of the day. It gives us the energy to a new day. Study has also showed that eating breakfast can help us in weight control.
Unfortunately, not many of us can do as what Adelle Davis suggested. Every morning, adults rush to go to workplace. Many skip breakfast altogether. Students may go to class slightly later. But these are the people who love nightlife. They would wake up at 10am and rush to attend the 11am class with empty stomachs. Working people are too busy to think about health, while students are too young to do so.
I do eat breakfast, but that’s a light one. In order to have the most important meal of the day, I am forced to wake up earlier than average people. This, in turn, means that I have to go to bed early.
Lunch is, likewise, a light one. I can’t have a heavy meal during the one-hour break. Not to mention that the food near my workplace isn’t so great. It turns out that my dinner is the heaviest of the meals!
Apparently I am not the only one who eats dinner like a king. For married people, this is the meal they could enjoy together with family members. Young ones, on the other hand, would have a dinner with their lovers in a romantic setting.
Can Adelle Davis’s advice still apply in the 21st century?
