  2. I often miss out on breakfast and feel groggy for a while in the morning it's probably because I don't have any thing to fuel me.

    Good idea about eating whole fruits instead of the juices.

  3. Skipping breakfast is very common for people rushing to work. They could take few fruits with them and have it on their way. Or else skipping breakfast would lead to obesity and other health related problems.
