Frankly, I am not really a breakfast person, although I know how important breakfast is for you. Actually it is the most important meal of the day. It’s a well known fact that people who eat breakfast lose more weight than people who don’t and this is due to several reasons:[column size="third"]

Reason 1

Breakfast provides the energy your body requires in order to perform activities. Therefore, you’re not so tired and can do more. [/column] [column size="third"]

Reason 2

It kickstarts the body into producing the enzymes needed to metabolise fat, helping to lose weight. [/column] [column size="third" position="last"]

Reason 3

Eating a good breakfast keeps you full for longer and may make you less likely to reach for elevenses. [/column]

 

Breakfast literally means "Breaking the Fast" from the last meal or snack from the day before. For most people this will be at least 8-10 hours, and for children who eat earlier in the evening, it can be as long as 16hrs! Energy levels are therefore low in the mornings, and your body needs an energy boost, in the form of food, to kick start the day.

Studies have shown that eating breakfast regularly leads to improved mood and better memory. Breakfast eaters also tend to be less stressed and feel calmer. Adults perform better in most tasks after eating breakfast, and children who eat breakfast perform better in school.
