Dr. Barry Sears Dr. Sears Comments:

Not so fast. The reason they call it breakfast is because you are “breaking an overnight fast”. The body is running on cortisol, and the glycogen stores in the liver are completely depleted by supplying the brain energy via release of stored glucose while you were sleeping. Unless you think two cups of coffee rich in caffeine is a great breakfast, I would recommend that you make this the ideal time to refuel the body.
