Poll: Are You A Breakfast Eater Or Skipper?

It's no secret that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. However, when you're late for work, finding even five minutes to toast a bagel or fry some bacon can seem impossible. According to this infographic featured on Fast Company, only 44 percent of people eat breakfast each morning. This is a shame because eating breakfast in the morning can increase your productivity at work. Why? Because your brain actually has fuel to function (go figure). Not only that, but people who eat breakfast also tend to be skinnier than those who skip it. Studies show that people who skip breakfast eat more junk food during the day and are more likely to develop fat around the belly. Sounds like common sense, right? But what about you? Are you a breakfast eater or skipper? Please take our poll and tell us what you think in the comments section below! [poll id="45"] Photo Credit: Shutterstock

  • Concern that someone might use a stolen card to make an online purchase
  • Thoughts of an employee mistakenly sending confidential data to a wrong email
