 Healthy breakfast

This simple quote is a great way to understand a healthy eating pattern. Did you know that breakfast is the most important meal of the day? 

Morning meetings, an early morning class, struggle to skip the traffic, not feeling hungry in the morning, and many more! Most of us can instantly come up with the excuses for not having breakfast before we start our day at work. But the fact is that having breakfast in the morning is one of the best ways to feel energetic.

Why Should You Never Miss Breakfast?

There are numerous reasons why you should never miss breakfast. Breakfast is the most important meal of the day and is one of the best ways to feel energetic. As you consume food in the morning, it increases your metabolic rate. This way it becomes a lot simpler for the body to burn those extra calories. In case you miss your breakfast, the body doesn’t process your next meal quickly and tries to hold on to the nutrients. So if you’re trying to lose weight, the most essential tip for you is to have a healthy breakfast every morning.

Research suggests that skipping your morning meal can keep you less motivated and irritated throughout the day as you start your work with an empty stomach. Furthermore, research has also proven that people who do not have breakfast in the morning tend to lack concentration and are less attentive. Skipping breakfast can cause decrease in the levels of serotonin, which results in mood swings, can affect sleep, hunger and several other factors related your health.

Break All Your Myths!

Many people believe in a common myth that skipping breakfast may help to lose weight! However, this is not true. Studies prove that if you skip breakfast, you end up eating more during the latter part of the day that can result in weight gain.

So now if you are convinced about the importance of breakfast, you must consume healthy meals for your breakfast.  Try to avoid food items like doughnuts, pastries, fast food items or foods with excess cheese etc., which may be filling but may harm the body. So start your day with a healthy breakfast and be a breakfast believer!
