Not eating breakfast could be harmful to our bodies. Studies show that there are several important reasons to eat breakfast every single morning, no matter how busy you are and even if you aren't very hungry.
If you are looking to lose weight or maintain recent weight loss, eating breakfast is crucial. Eating a small, sensible breakfast will help you curb hunger throughout the day. Having good, wholesome food in your system means you're less likely to reach for unhealthy snacks throughout your day.
At risk of stating the obvious! You need all the nutrients present in a healthy breakfast to help you stay active through your day.
Being alert and attentive during the day requires brain fuel! Certain breakfast choices are proven to give your brain a boost; they help you go about your day with more clarity and awareness.
A healthy breakfast will deliver much-needed vitamins and minerals to your body.
This is especially important for those who are watching their weight and want improved health. Eating breakfast makes you less likely to overeat and consume more calories than necessary through your day. Overeating throughout the latter part of the day is directly related to weight gain.
This is important if you are caring for others. Setting a healthy example for children is important to their health and awareness as they grow. Demonstrate the importance of healthy eating by not skipping the most important meal of the day.
Don’t forget, our bodies are 70 per cent water! Hydrating first thing in the morning will give your body the boost it needs to start the day. Try drinking a glass of water or two with your breakfast – you’ll feel the benefits.
