It is told Eat breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince, and dinner like a pauper.
."Breakfast" means just that: break the overnight fast.

You suffering from acidity, obesity or reduced attention span!!! ? Perhaps you are skipping breakfast, also called brain food and the most important meal of the day.!
People in cities tend to give breakfast a miss perhaps due to hectic lifestyles or in the belief that it will keep them slim. But experts say it could end up making people obese.!
'People do not seem to have time for breakfast these days. They have every reason to avoid the healthy tradition of having a good nutritious breakfast,' Anita Jatana, chief dietician at the Batra Hospital here, told IANS.
