I don't need breakfast, really

I love breakfast food.  The thing is though, I'm just not hungry when I get up.  I look forward to eating giant meals of breakfast food, just not at breakfast time.  I need to be awake for a few hours before I feel like eating, which puts my breakfast around most people's traditional lunch (sidebar--check out this humorous but also serious study that pinpoints the ideal time for brunch at 11:56 am).

Ever since I was a kid, I've always heard that a good day starts with a solid breakfast.  I used to believe that, but somewhere along the way I stopped, and I can now say with a high degree of certainty that it's not true for me at this point.  Why should I force-feed myself if I'm not hungry?

And too all my doubters, check out this New York Times article from last month, Sorry, There's Nothing Magical About Breakfast.  It's nice to finally have some support from a well respected source.
