Breakfast: a legacy of cereal…and sin?


Where did the idea of eating sugar-coated grains soaked in milk for breakfast come from













We’ve been told for decades that breakfast is “the most important meal of the day.” More recently, studies have made headlines suggesting that skipping breakfast is unhealthy, apparently vindicating General Foods, the company that started this myth in the 1940s. I wrote about this claim, and the bad science behind it, in a previous email.


There’s something, however, that I didn’t address in that email. I think most of us would agree that the American Heart Association (AHA) putting their “heart-healthy” stamp of appro...

What to Eat to Beat Coronavirus
By Kokila Kothandan

We can improve our chances of surviving coronavirus and its associated complications – by watching what we put in our mouths


In March, Israel’s Innovation Authority called on high-tech companies to submit proposals for innovative ways to tackle the coronavirus pandemic. Israel is often at its best when it applies creative thinking to solving crises. But, innovative, edgy and entrepreneurial as we may be, our governing bodies need to appreciate that the fight for collective health begins with a decidedly low-tech approach: good nutrition.


New research in America suggests the obesity epidemic is making the coronavirus outbreak more dangerous — and potentially more deadly. "For ...

The Story of Breakfast, Part 2
By Andy Hendel

One great problem with breakfast is that it drives up our intake of calories. The myth is that breakfast is filling, so we’ll eat less at lunchtime. But this myth (the so-called satiety myth, after satis, the Latin for “enough”) has been exposed repeatedly. Careful experiments show that a light breakfast of, say, 350 calories, will leave unchanged the amount people eat at lunchtime; while a heavy breakfast of, say, 625 calories, will reduce lunchtime consumption by only about 150 calories. Breakfast piles on the calories.


And breakfast not only fails to induce satiety; it can even do the opposite and stimulate hunger. Breakfast induces peaks in blood glucose levels, which ar...

By now you’ve probably heard that sugar is bad. It rots our teeth, makes us fat, and leads to devastating diseases like diabetes and heart disease. But how does sugar affect our mental health?


There are at least three key ways that high-sugar diets can contribute to mood, concentration, and energy problems: hormonal destabilization, inflammation/ oxidation, and insulin resistance.



In this post, we’ll concentrate on the hormonal pathway—how sugar can cause mood swings and other emotional issues by wreaking havoc with our natural hormonal balance.


So first, a definitio...
