Elizabeth HurleyThe fact that Elizabeth Hurley has an amazing bod is no secret, but she recently revealed a secret about how she maintains it.

And it's not exactly the doctor-approved sort. In fact, it goes against pretty much all medical advice out there.

Her revelation, which she shared with the world via Twitter: Breakfast ... or rather lack thereof.

“My diet survived the onslaught of phenomenal vacation food. Doctors disagree, but I swear by almost nothing for breakfast for adults," she stated. “Mugs of hot water first thing, maybe an espresso and a few oat cakes mid-morning."

Blasphemy against breakfast? That all-important, most-important, metabolism-starting meal? How could she?

Nutritionists quickly called bunk on her junk preachings.

“By breakfast time, most people haven't eaten for about 10 hours -- blood sugar is low and so your body really needs the energy that breakfast provides before you start your day," Dr. Laura Wyness, senior nutrition scientist at the British Nutrition Foundation, told NewsCore. "People who eat breakfast seem to find it easier to maintain a healthy body weight. It is likely that breakfast will stave off mid-morning hunger pangs."

As bad as it may be, Hurley's secret is my secret too. Not that my figure resembles hers, but I almost never eat breakfast -- unless you count coffee, in which case I consume a TON of breakfast.

I don't like that many breakfast foods; I'm not particularly hungry at that time of the day; and I figure it's a couple hundred calories I can eat later in the day when I want to.

All excuses, I know, but it works for me, and apparently it works even better for Elizabeth Hurley.

What about you, do you eat breakfast every morning?
