Reason I mention that is that although some people criticise them for having a heavy meal that early what modern day dieticians are advising is pretty much similar - have a big breakfast. The meal would normally consist of rice (carbohydrates) dal (protein) vegetables (vitamins and minerals) and ghee (fat) and unless I got it all wrong this is what constitutes a balanced meal. At this day and age we barely have the time to make all these before we walk out of the doors to work and neither would our working hours allow such a schedule. So what are some quick breakfast solutions you could try. 1. Oats porridge - boil a couple of tablespoon of oats in water until it is done (regular oats is better than quick cooking and honestly does not take much time to cook anyway).
When one feels sluggish and tired one tends to work less physically and in turn burns fewer calories. Also when the body is deprived of food for a long while cravings begin especially sugar cravings. This is when we feel like snacking on a chocolate bar or a big fat muffin or cakes etc. This effectively increases the calorie consumption. In summary a slow metabolism tired body burning lesser calories and high calorie/fat snacks effectively contribute to weight gain and not weight loss.

Bad cholesterol levels were significantly lower and insulin response to eating was lower lowering the risk of diabetes. Higher levels of bad cholesterol LDL will worsen circulation and strain your heart. What should we be eating?
