So if you belong to the "excusers" you should read the following facts: One. Jump Starts metabolism breakfast jump starts your metabolism and fuels your body for the rest of the day. It will help you be more alert and maintain a more efficient metabolism. During the night your body significantly reduces its activity. In the morning after a full night s sleep the body starts activating its systems and organs back and for that it needs "fuel" and energy. If your body does not get enough energy it will start addressing energy stores in the body. The result: we feel weak less alert and the time required for us to wake up and start the day takes longer than usual. The word breakfast means breaking the fast and refers to the fast our body experienced the night before.
It goes without saying that increased alertness and a more positive mood are essential for everybody to perform at their best be it studying or working. A happier mood ensures better work and improved performance. Additionally studies have proven that individuals who have their breakfast also demonstrate better memory and cognitive function in comparison to those who remain hungry in the mornings. Reasonable energy intakes during the morning improve short-term memory although super high calorie breakfasts actually impaired concentration levels. (2 3 Breakfast Research) Not only is it important to have your breakfast but it is also important to choose what you have. According to one of the studies in France the size of your breakfast does not have an effect over your mood but it can affect short-term memory.
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).
