“Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. It’s important to get your metabolism started early. To do that you need something in your system.”
Andrew Weil (“Jump-Start Your Day,” Prevention, Jun. 2002) wrote …
“We all need fuel in the morning to resupply ourselves with quick sources of glucose, which is needed to fuel the brain. Studies show that people who eat breakfast are more productive at school and work than those that skip it.”
Matthew Edlund, M.D. (The Body Clock: Finding Your Best Time of Day to Succeed in Love, Work, Play, Exercise, 2003) wrote …
“If the insulin hypothesis has any validity, we are in starvation mode every morning. Our brain will try to keep every calorie we’ve got. Eating little or no breakfast gives the brain the message that starvation is continuing while fuel need increases. The brain responds by making sure fuel stores are protected, and no calorie will be given up without a struggle. Not eating breakfast is probably a great way to gain weight.”

“The first bite of the day should be almond to set the full strength of hydrochloric acid and for all-day protein digestion. When you leave hydrochloric acid in the stomach, the saliva and hydrochloric acid become toxic.”

Ivan Illich (Medical Nemesis, published way back in 1975) wrote …
“Hospitals turn into monuments of narcissistic scientism, concrete manifestations of those professional prejudices which were fashionable on the day their cornerstone was laid and which were often outdated when they came into use. The technical enterprise of the physician claims value-free power. It is obvious that in this kind of context it is easy to shun the issue of social iatrogenesis with which I am concerned. Politically mediated medical damage is thus seen as inherent in medicine’s mandate, and its critics are viewed as sophists trying to justify lay intrusion into the medical bailiwick. Precisely for this reason, a lay review of social iatrogenesis is urgent. The assertion of value-free cure and care is obviously malignant nonsense, and the taboos that have shielded irresponsible medicine are beginning to weaken.”

Chocolate is only choco-LATE when you eat it at the wrong time.
No, it won’t slow you down. :)
