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.
The two most prominent include health surveys conducted by the American Dietetic Association for seven years and an Australian research spanning over three decades which examined the effects of breakfast on the health status of the adult population. Findings indicated unequivocally that people who eat a nutritious breakfast on a daily basis are less likely to develop diabetes and cardiovascular disease. Another comprehensive study published in 2003 the American Heart Association found that people who tend to skip breakfast has a significant chance of being obese at an older age and a higher chance of high blood pressure. Four. Brain functioning The brain and nervous system also need ENERGY and nutrients early in the day to fully and optimally function.
This relationship exists among all age groups. The most interesting finding in these studies was that those who eat a nutritious breakfast indeed consume more calories per day compared to people that are not eating breakfast at all yet their weight was substantially lower. The reason for this is that a sustained lack of energy slows down metabolism and causes an intense need for food later in the day. Another interesting finding is that people who combine a healthy breakfast within a diet program find it easier to stick to their nutritional program over time and they will suffer less of hunger throughout the day. Three. Maintains health Many surveys investigating the effect of breakfast show a multitude of health benefits.
