Question

Is it a myth or has it got some facts to it that people in this line of work don't really eat breakfast?

We all drink, probably too much, beer. So we have the in common.


We are all highly stressed and only relaxed once either at the pub or you have the odd good day.


We have alot of things in common, but I was wondering if people in our profession actually have a good diet?

I don't eat breakfast, I fast from around 8 pm to noon the next day. I don't see a lot of people in my office eating breakfast, seems like most of us just start with lunch.

I feel like most sales people either have a great handle on diet (low carb, low sugar, healthy eating plus gym,) or a piss poor diet full of fast food and energy drinks lol.

I've been doing this for about a year too. The only time I eat breakfast is on a slammed workday where I know my back-to-back meetings will prevent me from having lunch.

I don't eat breakfast (bad but can't help it). My first meal starts at 12:30-1pm and I've been intermittent fasting for the past 2 year without even knowing it.ย 

It could also just be me, but sometime I would buy and force myself to eat but I physically just can't. Rather than spending money or going through the effort to make something, I just sip my cold brew until lunch time.ย

Literally the same, coffee & an Actimel tends to plug the gap for a while until around 2 pm.ย

Yes, just a cup of Chobani unless I'm hungover lol. I used to not eat breakfast, but then I'd be so hungry for lunch I wouldn't want to eat my healthy lunch I made at home compared to whatever fun place my co-workers went. Breakfast has saved my waistline ironicly enough.ย

I try not to eat anything until noon each day. Just coffee and water until then.

I eat breakfast every day. When I was going to an office, I usually ate at the office.

I'd like to say it's for health purposes (and I justify it as such), but it's just become a habit to not eat breakfast until about 11 or 12. I do often start my day with a vitamin supplement in water.

Once I do eat around 11/12 it's usually breakfast type foods like eggs/bacon

Breakfast is pretty important. It replenishes your supply of glucose to boost your energy levels and alertness, while also providing otherย essentialย nutrients required for good health.ย

I usually just suck down a coffee and get right to work in the mornings, if I rip an early morning work out I usually try to eat something so Iโ€™m not fatigued during the day.ย

Intermittent fasting for 3-4 years now. That's why I don't eat breakfast. Has nothing to do with sales. Although I have noticed in the past that I can stay on task and focused when working through lunch and what not. Really don't mind 12 hours of work without a break if I can cut the work week short also.ย
