If you're not hungry when you wake up, you can have something simple like almonds and nuts. This is what I personally do. I eat some almonds after drinking water and then have my heavy breakfast after about two hours.
You can try this routine if you don't feel like eating a heavy meal right off the bat.
I'm not saying I'm good at this. I need to fight my random whims with this and other habits month after month etc.
Ps this app helps, thanks but I can't afford the premium 🙁
You have the ability to edit your morning ritual, to suit your circumstances.
I wonder what the Fabulous staff have to say about the habit of eating breakfast.
Better answer: Chewing food is what starts your metabolism in the morning. You don't necessarily need to have a big breakfast first thing in the morning. A cereal bar, piece of fruit, or a small handful of nuts are fabulous options for a good start to the day. A yogurt or smoothie is often suggested, but they give calories without starting your metabolism. Feel free to have a light "brunch" later in the morning or a bigger lunch if you're running low on energy or need the calories.
Do your best! I know how hard it can be, but eating something small is better than not eating at all. However, don’t make yourself sick. That’s worse than not eating. It’s a fine line for me, between eating and feeling sick or not eating and feeling sick! I have found that oatmeal, bagels, toast, those are generally easier for me to put in my stomach first thing. You have to learn what is best for you, and only you know that. I dislike ultimatums and rules, as I tend to be the exception due to my health problems. I always try to adapt everything to fit me and my lifestyle, and I think everyone should do the same. Breakfast is important as we need fuel, but not at the expense of your stomach!
I hope this helped you and good luck on your breakfasting adventures!
I eat small in the morning: hard cooked egg, piece of raw fruit like a banana or a favorite apple. Be sure to keep a snack handy. Eat it all or just take a few bites regularly to keep you energized and avoid over eating until the next meal.
In hindsight I can see why I wasn't hungry. First of all, even though I did the same things every day, they weren't nothing but stressed habits. Creating a habit with Fabulous has made me more organized. I start the day with my water, then breathe and make breakfast.
So to answer the question. Yes, you should. It gives you energy, a good habit and it's a great start to structure your day.
My reminders go off at 5:30 am, but I have to wait a while before I can eat though. Maybe try exercising a little before breakfast and then your body will need that food to recover.
To set things right, it would be a good idea to drink green tea or simple lime water or even glass full of water immediately after waking up in the morning and oral hygiene and before defecation.
Do 10 min of exercise or yoga after the above sequence of activities. Wait for another 10-15 min, you will feel the difference. An urge to eat plenty of food will be there.
Remember you can afford to skip dinner but you can't afford to skip breakfast if you want to be healthy and continue living a healthy life.
I have learned this habit from Rujuta Diwekar who is an excellent nutritionist and believes in very simple mantras.
Have this within 20 min of waking up.
You can work out and then have breakfast in an hour.

- How important is variety when it comes to eating breakfast?
- Does anyone have any suggestions for an on the go breakfast to just take with me along with my normal piece of fruit? The main reason I may not eat breakfast in the morning is due to time, but I find most ‘breakfast bar’ type on the go breakfasts boring and unsatisfying so I still find myself snacking an hour or two later.
