A recent study done in the UK suggests that what we eat for breakfast has a bearing on how our bodies react to lunch. According to the study eating soon after waking up in the morning may help stabilize blood glucose levels later during the day. The small-scale study investigated metabolic changes in eight obese adults with type 2 diabetes. The subjects were divided into two groups--one group had breakfast soon after waking up in the morning and the other group skipped breakfast altogether. The researchers noted how blood glucose levels differed between the groups and found that those who had breakfast showed a much lower spike in blood glucose after lunch compared to those who didn t have breakfast. The two groups had similar levels of insulin.
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.
If one is already overweight the complications get even worse. The effect of diabetes may not be known immediately but the body will be deteriorating gradually. Keeping the blood sugar under control is absolutely important while living with diabetes and skipping meals that too breakfast will be highly counter-productive for diabetes management. 4. Menstrual irregularities - some studies are said to have shown that girls/women who skip breakfast are likely to have irregular periods. 5. Poor mood - low glucose is said to be responsible for irritability fatigue and tiredness. Some studies show that people who skip breakfast snap at others more easily. To me the risk of weight gain (and all associated health risks due to being overweight) and risk of diabetes alone are enough to make me run for my breakfast.
