New Study Says Skipping Breakfast Makes You Gain More Weight Than Having Two Breakfasts

The age-old diet rule of never skipping breakfast just got a big boost.

A new study published in Pediatric Obsesity found that eating two breakfasts is actually better than consuming nothing at all.  The findings come after researchers from Yale and the University of Connecticut followed middle-school students starting from their fifth grade year in 2011 to seventh grade in 2013, according to the Washington Post.

The children had a wide variety of different breakfast habits, including typically skipping the meal, eating a single meal at home or at school, and those who ate two meals – one at home and again at school.

Turns out, the kids who got a double dose of breakfast (about one in every ten students in the study) registered the same average weight gain as all of their peers, including those who ate just one breakfast.  The real difference was seen in the kids who never or rarely ate breakfast – they were twice as likely to be overweight or obese than the students who consumed two morning meals.

So kids (and adults who want to give it a try), it looks like two (healthy) breakfasts should be in your future.

The Latest Craze in Disco Styles Is See-Through Jeans—but Beware of Foggy Bottoms

Posted on

On a clear day, you can see forever—or at least that’s the wicked thought behind L.A. designer Agi Berliner’s transparent idea: see-through jeans. Exhibitionists notwithstanding, most folks wear them over bathing suits or as attention-getting evening wear with halters, garter belts and body stockings. Created for the disco crowd, the $34 jeans are selling like, well, hot pants. In just six weeks, 25,000 pairs have already been sold in such major department store chains as Macy’s, Bonwit’s and Saks.

“What’s limiting American designers is that we’re afraid to do something different,” says Berliner, 32, a Hungarian émigré who fled with her family to the U.S. in 1956. Agi thought up the gimmick in London while marveling at the way plastics were being employed by designers of punk fashion. In her L.A. office, where she designs for La Parisienne junior sportswear, Agi spent five days on the phone and six weeks testing to come up with the right plastic.

Agi herself tried out the French-cut jeans with the zipper in front, and quickly found several problems: Some plastics tore away from stitching, others wouldn’t bend and all fogged with perspiration. The ideal material proved to be a vinyl supplied by a bookbinder. The steam was eliminated with a series of vents behind the knees and in the crotch. “They’re no hotter than polyester pants,” claims Agi, “and if you wear them with tights, they won’t stick to your legs.”

Whatever the discomfort and despite the problem of Saturday night feverishness, discomaniacs report one major advantage of the plastic pants: no laundry bills. To keep Berliner’s see-through jeans clear, all the wearer needs is a little Windex.

This is important for kids, but for adults not so much. I started gaining weight when I started eating breakfast. I think as adults we are exposed to so much toxins and bad eating over the years, that giving the digestion a break actually promotes a healthier “system”.

The super success of first Knights of the Old Republic game initiated a sequel’The Sith Lords, which has all the key aspects of the first RPG plus more re-playable quests and a good storyline. The best part of Star Wars games is that they can easily be molded into different genres. Multiplayer gaming made easy: Just connect your console to Internet through a DSL or Cable Internet connection and get into a multiplayer game.
