Eating 3 Meals a Day Is Harder than Physical Chemistry

Although we may feel like prisoners in lab sometimes, the clearest confirmation that this is not the case is that we’re not guaranteed three squares a day.  That, and there’s a significantly lower chance of getting stabbed with a shank in lab.  If it were up to a nutritionist, we’d eat three meals a day separated by healthy snacks like fruit or nuts to keep ravenous hunger at bay.  But for most of us, life gets in the way of this practice and more often than we’d probably like, we end up skipping a meal.

In their recent Poverty Nutrition series (A Fugue in Egg Minor and Beans and Rice (& Their Infinite Variety)) Bonnie Barrilleaux and Shelly Gallendar transformed inexpensive ingredients into quick and tasty meals.  We realize that no matter how easy a recipe, it still takes time to eat it – and on occasion, that much time’s just hard to find.  Yet, most of us have enough freedom in our schedule to decide which meal is going to get the axe in the event we have to drop one.  So which meal do you end up skipping most often?

    Breakfast is take it or leave it. 90% leave it.

    I know I *should* have breakfast but I usually chose a lie in and run for the bus over food. Thankfully my fiancé does all the cooking otherwise I'm sure I'd eat less dinner!

    I often skip breakfast AND lunch. I'm not sure that's very healthy but on the other hand, calorie restriction leads to increased lifespan…

    I also usually skip breakfast and lunch. I'm never hungry in the morning, and I am usually to busy to stop for lunch. When I do stop, my PI usually hounds me down and hands me a new task so I don't get to finish eating anyway- and a few bites makes me hungrier than no lunch at all.I rarely eat before I get home around 10pm. After six years you get used to it….
