A study of 35 000 people in Holland revealed that people who missed this important meal were more likely to be obese than those who did eat (even a less healthy) breakfast. This is although the people who did eat breakfast, consumed more calories in a day than those who did not eat breakfast.
So what did you have for breakfast today?
It is a known fact that the body holds onto fat when it is not fed, so never miss this meal.One of the biggest reasons that people are overweight is because they do not eat breakfast after waking up.
It is also important to eat the right food at breakfast time
Did you know that corn flakes stimulates insulin, which is a fat storage hormone more than pure sugar does?
Nutrition experts are in agreement that people who do not eat breakfast will battle to control the amount and type of food that they eat throughout the day.
While toast and cereal are quick and convenient, these foods contain no nutritional benefit. Cereals and toast actually stimulate your body to crave more starchy foods instead of craving foods that supply better nutrition.
If you miss breakfast, you are more likely to be lethargic and unable to perform at peak level while working, studying or playing
The effects of missing breakfast are even more disastrous. You can test this yourself by skipping breakfast for a week and then have breakfast for the next week, document how you feel in both weeks.
Here is another test that you can conduct, eat toast and cereal for breakfast, and the next day have a high-protein breakfast with little or no carbohydrates; the difference in your performance will blow you away.
So apart from eating breakfast, it is equally important to eat the right foods at breakfast time. High-protein foods such as eggs and lean meat are ideal; however, most people do not have the time or money to prepare these meals before going to work and sending the kids off to school.
