Did you know: "Eat breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince, and dinner like a pauper," is an old saying that has proven true. If you ditch breakfast your energy probably flags by mid-morning.  Skipping breakfast discounts your body's nutritional needs and it also deprives you of many health benefits. Eating later in the day inhibits your body's ability to burn off unnecessary fat, putting yourself at risk for obesity, heart disease, and stealing intelligence from your brain.  Register for “Breakfast of Champions” and understand why breakfast is not the enemy.
