Having a busy schedule every day, waking up very early in the morning with the buzz of your alarm, rushing to the bathroom and dressing up to rush out so as to avoid traffic, without breakfast happen many times.
Of course, a busy morning can make it easy for breakfast to fall low in your list of priorities. But leaving just a few minutes to have something to eat can really make a difference to your day.
Over time, you may have no chance to take breakfast because of your daily routine.
The English language word ‘breakfast’ originated from the phrase ‘breaking the fast’. Like having an overnight fast or having a regular fast and looking forward to break the fast. You would agree that it is very necessary to break the fast, especially because of health reasons.
So waking up in the morning and having breakfast is important. Breakfast can make your day run smooth and help boost your brain for your daily work.
Breakfast is the first meal of the day. It is best to take breakfast two hours after waking, but you can also take it between 5-8am.
Breakfast is not just important, it is the most important meal of the day.
These are four reasons why breakfast is the most important meal of the day:
It aids weight reduction
For those who are trying to slim down or keep their weight intact, taking breakfast is a way to achieve that. Research has shown that breakfast can prevent people from getting overweight. This is because skipping breakfast is more likely to make people reach for high-sugar and fatty snacks which can cause weight to increase later in the day.
It activates long life health benefits
Eating breakfast helps to activate long life benefits like reducing blood pressure, obesity, heart attack and diabetes.
Taking breakfast gives good health benefits. This is because one is likely to over eat and take snacks in between, a situation where one ends up taking food that has high cholesterol and eat a lot of unnecessary things which are harmful to the health.
The idea behind this is that taking breakfast reduces the rate that one gets hungry later in the day.
It is an energy level booster
Research has shown that people that take breakfast in the morning have more strength to carry out the work of the day.
Breakfast provides energy for the body. It immediately increases the energy level.
A well designed breakfast consists of low carbohydrate, protein and fat (we all know that carbohydrate is an energy booster, which is needed for the work of the day).
It helps the brain function well
This is because breakfast contains glucose level which helps the brain to function well.
Research has shown how eating breakfast can improve memory and concentration levels. And amongst children, breakfast can help increase speed of work and improve grades.
Health is wealth, so make a conscious decision today to take breakfast daily and thank me later.
