After not eating for several hours your metabolism goes into "starvation" mode it slows down automatically and switches to energy saving and storage state. This is the body s ingenious survival mechanism for dealing with situations of lack of food for hours and days but because we live in an affluent society survival situations are particularly infrequent hence prolonged fasting periods cause the body to simply store excess weight as fat. Two. Weight loss and hunger The concept that skipping breakfast contributes to weight loss and calorie saving is fundamentally wrong since by doing so we actually throw our body out of balance. Many studies have also shown an inverse correlation between maintain a healthy weight and eating Breakfast namely those who eat in the morning have a lower weight than others who skip breakfast.
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. We all keep hearing about the numerous health problems that can come with being overweight especially risk of heart diseases and skipping breakfast can potentially lead to being overweight. 2. Lowered cognition - studies have said to have shown that children who have breakfast fare better in problem solving than children who skip breakfast.
Many of us say we would prefer to sit down and enjoy a leisurely breakfast. But our lives have become so full and hectic that skipping breakfast often seems a necessity. And many of us reason that having several extra pounds we wish to lose skipping breakfast will do us good. In Keri Gans book The Small Change Diet she gives several examples of the excuses her patients have given her in 10 years of private practice as a licensed dietitian for not eating even a quick breakfast. There are many reasons we give ourselves for skipping breakfast in our hurried lives. But I agree with Keri Gans when she states that those people including myself that hit the snooze alarm even once have time for a quick breakfast. And those of us that dawdle around in the bathroom getting ready for work have time for a quick breakfast. If you spend more time then you need on your morning bathroom break contemplating your day you have time for a quick breakfast. It isn t a matter of finding 5 min. for breakfast it s a matter of taking 5 min. breakfast.
