What Health Professionals Eat for Breakfast

Seeing an article in Today’s Diet and Nutrition titled “What Nutrition Pros Eat for Breakfast”, made me think, “do health professionals eat the same as what they recommend to their patients?” The article also reminded me of a recent conversation I had with my MD.

To give my doctor credit, she is someone who follows current research and was well aware that eggs are not with heart disease and elevated serum cholesterol. However, she did agree that she noticed when she eats cereals or granola for breakfast she finds herself pretty hungry, at about 10am and needs a snack. Well, long story short, when I visited my doctor again this year for my physical I learned she now eats 2 eggs every morning for breakfast and skips her previously required 10 a.m. snack.

So are you a health professional that practices what you preach?
