For some of us the idea of having breakfast sounds like a mission. Waking up 20 minutes earlier just to prepare something to eat before work is just non negotiable. So picking up something from the store on the way to the office sounds a lot easier. For others, the idea of eating in the morning is something that just doesn’t happen at all.
The reality is, breakfast is very important. Not only it will help kick start your metabolism but also you will be less likely to over eat on your next meal simply because you won’t be starving. It provides the brain and body with fuel after an overnight fast making sure you will not run out of gas!
Many studies have shown how beneficial breakfast is. It restores glucose levels which is essential for brain function improving memory and concentration. Plus it’s been proven that those who lose weight and keep it off, eat breakfast everyday!
In a nutshell, the benefits of having breakfast:
– cognitive function
– increased energy levels
– waistline control
– overall health
