Q: What do health enthusiasts have in common with anyone who’s got a really bad hangover?
A: Breakfast as your key meal.
True, diet breakfast might not always resemble the one that you go for after a night of bad decisions with the Long Island Iced Tea three-for-one special. This list is geared for those in need of hot fat and starch in extra-large quantities. But here’s good news if you live in both worlds: in her book, "The Big Breakfast Diet: Eat Big Before 9 A.M. and Lose Big For Life," Dr. Daniela Jakubowicz says, "You can have all the foods you crave, from pasta to bacon to ice cream, with just one catch - you have to eat them before 9:00 A.M."
Now, good luck getting yourself out of bed in time to find these breakfasts.
