  • Fried breakfast is healthiest way to start the day, say scientists

    My friend posted this (in disbelief) to Facebook today:
    http://www.telegraph.co.uk/health/he...cientists.html

    The article specifically states the benefits of a such a breakfast being fatty, and how that's advantageous over a carb-heavy breakfast. Great to see stuff like this in a mainstream newspaper and know that I'm on the right track with my nice big fry up 5 days a week!

    I will say that I believe it's true. Before PB, I drank a protein drink that included protein powder, oatmeal and milk, with just a little flaxseed oil for fat. I would be starving within a few hours. Now, I eat 4-5 eggs, bacon, and coffee with heavy cream, and I am good for at least 6-7 hours.

        I have to say, I've always loved the English fry-up... except for the baked beans. I never understand how someone could stomach them in the morning.

          April Fool's Joke, Perhaps?

          April Fool's joke? Just looking at the date on the article ;-)

              Aye my friends were hoping it wasn't an April fool of course.

              Just had a debate in the post comments with a friend who's into nutrition and was pointing out that "my idea of good fats is different from 95% of doctors / researchers / trainers"... *headdesk*

                Well if we are to use the same standard of evaluation for "good fats" we end up with saturated fats being the winners. Also if we go by what the conventional practitioners say we should eat, we should eat 60% fat because of course the only single health issue that matters is that horrible horrible CHD.

                It's hilarious that they think it is a good joke to tell people to eat a lot of bacon and sausage in the morning to lose weight and be healthy.

                  OK in terms of what's healthy: Bacon, check. Sausage, check. Eggs, Check. Beans.......?! Beans?! since when were beans high fat? If they're going to throw beans into the mix I think they should include those fried potatoes in the pictures too.

                      The BBC linked to this in an article entitled "10 stories that could be April Fools... but aren't":
                      http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/magazine/8598637.stm

                      But then again, that might have been an April fool

                        Even if they are serious I can 1up them. Breakfast of mostly fat and protein, lunch of mostly fat and protein, dinner of mostly fat and protein.

                        I like my breakfast raw and cold though. Don't you dare call me a raw foodist but it's a psychological think more than anything. And it gets my sweet cravings out of the way early so my afternoon and evening can be that nice and full, rich, fatty, psyched feeling.

                            This article was published on 31st March, so no April fools there:

                            http://www.dailymail.co.uk/health/ar...start-day.html

                            I'm sure I heard this news a couple of months ago as well and anyway I totally agree as it works for me when I manage to get the time to eat one (less the beans)
