    glamorous meal for breakfast

    Does "glamorous meal for breakfast" make sense?Isn't glamorous a writing style to denote "big, heavy"? I don't think it's common

    .37)Lots of media reports claim that breakfast is the most important out of the three meals of the day. According to them, we should have the most glamorous meal for breakfast and limit food intake as day passes by. This is because, they say, breakfast provides essential energy to both your body and brain

    Re: glamorous meal for breakfast

    I could possibly accept a "glamorous" meal if it were fancy food, but this is a very unexpected use of that word.

    I've never heard "glamorous" used to describe writing.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    Re: glamorous meal for breakfast

    It's a badly chosen adjective for the context.

    A better word would have been 'substantial' or 'heaviest'.
