Dr. Oz Says We Should “Cancel” Breakfast

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, right? That’s what a lot of us grew up hearing, but according toDr. Oz, we shouldn’t believe the hype about the morning meal. “I think for 2020, the first thing I’m going to do is ban breakfast,” says famous TV docMehmet Oz. “I don’t think we need to eat breakfast. That’s an advertising ploy.”

Oz explains that the idea we need to get up and fill our plates with eggs and bacon wasn’t based on our health, but on advertisements. He suggests we should “cancel” breakfast and just eat our first meal when we’re actually hungry instead. “Most Americans are addicted to food,” he adds, “We should be addicted to life.”

And while he’s not a fan of breakfast, Oz suggests brunch as a better alternative, advising, “Have brunch every day of the week!”
