This morning on The Richard Piet Show: Mornings on WBCK, Corey Buell, registered dietitian at Borgess Medical Center, dispelled some myths about breakfast.

Are you deliberate about your breakfast choices? After all, your mother — and grandmother, probably — always told you it's the "most important meal of the day."

The idea has been, "We need to load up on power food to give us motivation for the day ahead." Is that actually true? Is breakfast the most important meal?

Buell, registered dietitian with Borgess Medical Center, tells WBCK:

  • Breakfast can be the most important meal, but it doesn't have to be.
  • If you want to lose weight, breakfast can help.
  • If you work out in the morning, breakfast can help with that, too.
