    Its a Russian proverb which tells the importance of having breakfast . one should not skip breakfast for any reason , you can skip even lunch and dinner but not morning breakfast , its the first food which going to give you enough fuel of energy to run that day .. . .

    You should eat well in the breakfast since it's the beginning of the day, lunch little less than that but you must eat very little in the evening as it's healthy not to eat too much in the evenings. Logically, if you eat alone, that means you eat more because you don't have to share, if you eat with a friend, that means you'll share with him or her so you'll eat less in the lunch. And for the dinner, you'll give your meal to your enemy meaning you should eat very little.

    It means that Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, lunch is needed but not as important as breakfast, and dinner is the least important.

    It basically encourages people to eat breakfast.

    Eat your breakfast alone, like in more quantity; share ur lunch, lesser quantity; and give ur dinner away, dat means eat the least at night.. this is the healthiest way of diet.. eat a heavy breakfast, medium lunch, and least for dinner :)

    When you wake up you eat breakfast alone.

    By midday you start to see your buddies.

    Then everyone has a big showdown at night with their arch nemesis.

    Also if you secretly poisoned your food that's the only one you're not gonna eat, might as well poison the enemy.

    I think it means to be kind to others, share, and still have a little left over for yourself.
