Stomach Meridian – 陽明胃經

Time: 7-9am is when your chi travels into the stomach meridian.  It is the best time to eat breakfast and to nourish your body with the nutrients from food. Digestion is the strongest at this time, and absorption is the best.

This is why breakfast should always be the biggest meal of the day. Your metabolism will be higher with a big breakfast.  Over a lifetime, higher metabolism means less weight on you. That is, if you don’t over eat and consume too many calories.  Not eating breakfast will weaken your stomach chi and cause many disorders down the road.

It is best to eat foods that are mildly flavored. Stay away from spicy food at breakfast, as it will cause stomach fire,  dry parched and cracked lips, canker sores, etc.
