Today was an upside down day, I missed breakfast and had breakfast for dinner. Its usually said that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. I missed breakfast today and my day was far better than yesterday. The positive aspects were unrelated to food and it made me feel better even though I had no breakfast. I neither agree nor disagree that breakfast is the most important deal of the day, I think it is one of 3 most important meals of the day. All 3 meals (or 6 in the case of Singaporeans!) fuel different parts of the day and all parts of the day are important. I think so anyway.

You camera can help you manage your weight. With the Meal Snap application you can calculate the number of calories by taking a photo of the food. Wall Street Journal tested this and unfortunately only 7 of 17 meals photographed were on the mark.Still 7 out of 17 ain't bad. 

The article quotes the applications founder as saying that “dietary research suggests that the very process of photographing a meal can serve to bolster discipline and control, regardless of whether that process produces an accurate calorie count.” I think this may be true of food bloggers. Blogging perhaps makes us more conscious of what we eat and influences our eating habits, perhaps in both positive and negative ways. Looking at the photo above may have a slight negative impact, especially if we walk past a shop selling macarons or something resembling it.

  6. Yeah I agree breakfast is one of the most important meals of the day that why I try not to miss them. I also remember before I usually dont eat breakfast but when I met my wife she told me that I should, I even lost a lot of weight after having regular breakfasts.
