OCE Redux

I ate breakfast, which is a controversial choice. But the contents and timing of every single meal you feed yourself are controversial. Even vegetables. Forget about legumes (phytic acid!), dairy (raw is god/bad, pasteurization is good/bad, the lactose and casein is good/bad), protein (how much is TOO MUCH/LITTLE???), fat (natural fats are good, BUT WHAT ABOUT THE RATIO OF OMEGA 3 to OMEGA 6 TO SATURATED TO MONOUNSATURATED???), carbs (bad for insulin! good for serotonin!), eggs (life! death!), nuts (raw? soaked? sprouted? dehydrated under low heat for hours on end?), and fruit (fructose = the devil???).

I feel decidedly pudgy and a bit anxious/speedy. Obviously you don’t need to eat breakfast to jump start your metabolism. I’m reading “Potatoes Not Prozac,” in which the author tells you to eat breakfast every day (doesn’t breakfast just kill your overnight GH response, thus causing you to store fat?), three meals every day (that is the opposite of intermittent fasting), and complex carbohydrates, like whole grains (phytic acid, antinutrients, sugar).

Whatever.
