16 Mar Reasons Not To Skip A Healthy Breakfast
Most people agree that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, but some people still choose not to eat breakfast daily. Did you know while you sleep, your body is digesting itself to provide energy for your brain? Most of this energy comes from digesting muscle mass to make glucose, thus to rebuild this lost muscle mass, your mom will demand protein upon waking up. Breakfast can be the time of day where you get a bit of peace and relaxation before your hectic day starts. Not only can breakfast be your relaxing part of the day, research has shown that breakfast is good for your brain and body. So make breakfast a daily habit starting today!
Here are some of the reasons not to skip breakfast:
- Energy Levels – If you’re suffering from lack of energy come mid morning, this could be because you are skipping breakfast. Your brain needs glucose to function effectively. You’re not eating all night while sleeping, so eating breakfast will give you that boost of energy to start the day.
- Health Issues – skipping breakfast deprives your body of nutrients. Many studies have shown that people who skip breakfast tend to be deficient in minerals like calcium.
- Brain Function – Since breakfast is the most important meal, it is also one of the most important tools in maintaining effective cognitive function. Breakfast helps to improve attention, problem-solving skills, and even memory.
- Weight Maintenance – If you are trying to lose weight or maintain your weight, breakfast can be a crucial component of your weight maintenance or weight loss program. Studies show that people who choose to eat breakfast take in fewer calories than people who do not eat breakfast.
