Making time for breakfast has enormous health benefits and can actually help to lose weight or maintain a healthy weight. Here are some powerful reasons to start or continue eating breakfast in the morning. People who are trying to lose weight skip breakfast thinking that the calories they don t eat will reduce their overall intake. This plan actually backfires because when you starve the body of food and nutrients it actually holds onto fat burning calories much slower to conserve energy. When you skip breakfast the body stays sluggish because it s gone all night without food and you are waiting even longer to provide it with the nutrients to function optimally. After fasting all night when we are asleep food actually jumpstarts the metabolism basically kicking it into high gear so the body burns calories more effectively throughout the day.
They say ignorance is bliss but there are times when ignorance of people makes me sad. One such instance is when people do not think breakfast is important and chose not to include it in their routine. It is said that one should eat like a king for breakfast queen for lunch and popper for dinner. Unfortunately for many people for reasons of their own dinner happens to be the biggest meal and breakfast is the first one to be skipped. I have always believed that to a large degree you are what you eat so I think food plays an important part in one s life especially the quality of life. That is one of the reasons why I take time and effort to not just prepare good food but also to write a lot about it so I spread some awareness in whatever little way I can. Reason I say it makes me sad is because the effects of skipping breakfast may not be seen immediately. But over time one will have to face the consequences. When some of my friends say they do not have breakfast I feel bad because they are not doing any good for their body.
Easting breakfast not only stimulates calorie burning but also will wake you up because you now have energy to use. Another thing the kind of breakfast food you eat will also determine how your body responds. Now a days breakfast foods consist of simple carbohydrates i.e. Doughnuts cereal bars white bread sugary cereals bagels. These types of foods are loaded with sugar and usually have high number of calories which spikes your blood glucose levels. Although it will give you energy it will be short lived and when your blood sugar crashes so will you and you will crave more sugary substitutes before you even hit lunchtime. By eating a hearty breakfast with complex carbohydrates which digest slowly such as oatmeal or whole grain bread or bagels which are high in fiber and low in sugar you will provide your body with a steady source of energy and keep your cravings down.
