Doughnuts will kill you

Over dramatic? Yes.

How about, “Doughnuts will kill your diet.” Better?

In the words of Baz Luhrmann, “The long term benefits of sunscreen have been proved by scientists whereas the rest of my advice has no basis more reliable than my own meandering experience…”

After weeks of a successfully balanced and healthy diet, there were a few mornings I used my one-a-day dessert token in the form of a giant, fresh-baked, vanilla-iced, gorgeous, fluffy doughnut.

Every morning that I ate my whole wheat toast, two scrambled eggs, and 8oz cranberry juice, I had a successful day of healthy eating without struggle.

Every single morning that I had a doughnut, I fought (kicking and screaming) to escape cravings for junk for the rest of the day. Most times, I caved and lost.

So tell me what that means?

A healthy breakfast sets a day’s diet pace. Think about it.
