Should you be eating breakfast?

Our POINT-COUNTERPOINT team shares their take on one of the biggest issues facing America today.

  • Breakfast is the most important meal of the day

    For college students, breakfast is essential. It provides them with the nutrients and energy they need to pay attention both in the classroom and after class.

    Eating a healthy breakfast of grains, dairy and fruits promotes digestive regularity. Those who neglect breakfast in the morning are playing with fire- you might feel tempted to snack on foods high in fat and sugar! These sugary foods might provide you with energy in the short term, but often they lead only to a mid-morning crash.

    It’s easy to prepare a healthy breakfast in just 15 minutes, and the positive effects it can have on your day won’t go unnoticed. I don’t understand why anybody would argue with this.

  • Breakfast is for idiots

    If you eat a meal within minutes of waking up, I feel sorry for you. The only reason I can think of for eating breakfast is overwhelming stupidity.

    Breakfast is unrealistic. First off, it takes way too long. Even if you want to just eat cereal in the morning, you still have to get a bowl, open the box, put the cereal in and then pour milk on top of it. It takes a long time to do that. That’s probably the most time-consuming thing I can think of.

    Second of all, breakfast has calories in it. Calories make you fat if you eat them. Breakfast makes you fat.

    All foods that you eat during breakfast have the potential to expire before you even eat them. It’s a huge waste of money.

    It’s time to put a stop to breakfast. A lot of people might disagree with me. They might say that I don’t accept other lifestyles, that I hate breakfast “for no reason.” I don’t have all the answers. But if there’s one thing I do know, it’s that you’re an idiot if you disagree with me.
