Some people find that if they don't eat breakfast they're starving by lunchtime and make very bad food decisions because they're hungry/their willpower is low. Some people just can't function in the morning without breakfast for whatever reason... (more)

I came to Paleo because Robb Wolf made me laugh. It seems like so many people become crusaders and lose perspective and humor. He still has his and is realistic about how people are really going to eat. That is what sold me.
