We’ve all heard the saying “Breakfast is the most important meal of the day.” Well I’ll go ahead and say, that is a fact! Growing up our parents may have said it, but at that time it pretty much went in one ear and out the other. This time without letting the info slip away lets take a look at some of the reasons this statement is true.
Energy. Your body and brain need energy to function, food is fuel. If you choose not to eat breakfast by the time lunch comes around you are probably feeling fatigued. There is also a better chance that once you do finally eat you will overeat and may not end up making the best choices. Vending machine around? You may be headed straight for it and we all know those things don’t have the healthiest of choices.
Weight Loss. The first time you eat something in the morning your metabolism has begun for the day! Who wouldn’t want that? As we get older our metabolism slows down, so why not do one simple thing for ourselves and get that back up to speed. What you choose to eat for breakfast is a different story. People who choose healthier options for breakfast tend to choose healthier options throughout their day.
Investment. This is your body that is with you forever, choose to take care of it. Certain illnesses are caused due to lack of nutrition, don’t let your body be one of them. Maybe you want to sleep that extra 10 minutes in the morning, but in the long run is that 10 minutes really going to matter? Cherish what you have been given, not everyone has the option of eating breakfast.
Maybe you do eat breakfast, pat yourself on the back, but if you don’t hopefully one of these reasons above will at least get you to reconsider. Breakfast is a FREE meal, why would anyone not take advantage of FREE?
It’s your choice. Now choose.
