Fried Breakfast Is Good For Your Health. Really.

If you want to avoid ObamaCare, in addition to Bill Sardi's recommendation (natural medicine cabinet) the other day, eat fried breakfast.

Now that's more to my liking. I always liked solid English Breakfast whenever I stayed in England. I hope this is not a April Fool's joke...

Fried breakfast is healthiest start to day, say scientists (4/1/2010 Telegraph UK)

"A breakfast of bacon, sausages, eggs, and beans could be the healthiest start to the day, according to new research.

"Scientists believe that breakfast programmes the metabolism for the rest of the day, and a fatty meal will help the body break down fat later on.

"Carbohydrate rich foods in contrast appear mainly to prepare the body to break down only carbohydrates, the International Journal of Obesity reports.

"Dr Martin Young, of the University of Alabama at Birmingham, said: “The first meal you have appears to programme your metabolism for the rest of the day.

"“This study suggests that if you ate a carbohydrate-rich breakfast it would promote carbohydrate utilisation throughout the rest of the day, whereas if you have a fat-rich breakfast, you (can) transfer your energy utilisation between carbohydrate and fat.”

"The team of researchers found there may be some truth in the old saying “'eat breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince and dinner like a pauper' – may be the key to a healthy body and mind.”" [The article continues. Emphasis is mine.]
