Benefits of breakfast

5 Reasons Why You Should Never Skip Breakfast

Skipping breakfast seems to be the norm in our fast-paced world. Since we are busier than ever, most of us don’t hesitate to skip the morning meal.

But breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Mom proves right again (Have you noticed that that keeps happening?). Breakfast is the combination of two words, break and fast. When you are sleeping, your body is essentially fasting for six to nine hours. This is the longest period without food in a 24-hour cycle.

Your body needs breakfast to be healthy. Here are a few reasons why skipping it is a bad idea all around.

1. Skipping breakfast can make you gain weight.

When you skip early morning chow, you are actually overriding your natural desire to eat. That hunger can reassert itself with a vengeance in your next meal. You are also more likely to fall to the temptation of snacks and treats throughout the day. Those unplanned calories are usually far less healthy than a good breakfast, and far more likely to pack on the pounds.

2. A day without breakfast is a tired and unproductive day.

Your body runs on fuel, and that fuel is food. When you get hungry, you also feel sluggish and low on energy. When you skip breakfast, your glucose levels drop. You’ll feel tired and lethargic and find it hard to focus on work. Your mind starts to wander and you find you just don’t have the resources you need to do the day right. A good breakfast is key to tackling the daily To-Do list.

3. Saying no to breakfast is saying yes to stress.

Food sets your mood. When you are hungry, your body isn’t functioning properly. And when your body isn’t functioning properly, you can get stressed out and irritable. When your body needs something, it increases your stress level. So, when you say no to breakfast, you are also saying yes to increased stress.

4. You can wreck your health & fitness goals.

Losing weight and getting healthy is the most common New Year’s Resolution in America. But getting healthy requires a combination of good nutrition and regular physical activity. If you are on a meal plan or fitness regime, breakfast is part of that winning healthy combination.

To be healthy, your body needs to refuel every three to four hours. When you push that time, your body begins shifting gears from normal healthy operations to emergency protocols and disaster plans. You can keep going, but it isn’t good for you. The longer you push your body, the worse it will get for you. You won’t feel good. You won’t look good. And your life won’t be good.

5. Your blood glucose levels go haywire without breakfast.

Glucose, or blood sugar, is essential to feeling good and living a great life. It can be thrown out of balance by illness, emotional stress, injuries and other related factors. To recover and feel healthy, you need a steady, stable stream of nutrition. Breakfast is a key part of that nutrition.

If you are thinking “That’s great, but I just don’t have time!” here are a few tips that can help.

Set an alarm 15 to 20 minutes earlier to give yourself enough time to eat breakfast.

Pack your breakfast the night before just like you do your lunch. That way, you can eat it on your way to work or at the office.

Search online for healthy, easy-to-make breakfast recipes. This will also help keep breakfast from becoming boring and monotonous.
