Missing a healthy breakfast can be seen as a way of saving time in the morning, or of losing weight. But the Finnish researchers say those who miss breakfast tend to smoke more, drink more alcohol and take less exercise than those who make time for the meal. And those who missed the meal were likely to be fatter, possibly because they are more likely to have unhealthy snacks mid-morning to boost their energy levels.
Skipping a healthy breakfast t is a common strategy for losing weight, but not a smart one. Breakfast has always been said to be the most important meal of the day. Studies show that children who eat breakfast do better in school. It doesn’t take much further thought to realize adults will feel better and perform better at work as well. Whether you work at home, on the farm, at the office, at school, or on the road, it is not a good idea to skip a healthy breakfast. Eating a good breakfast sets the tone for the rest of the day.
According to the dieticians, a good breakfast is most essential. They say a healthy breakfast must be balanced and should include nutrients like calcium (milk or milk products), proteins and fiber (sprouts or cereal), and some amount of antioxidants (apples, strawberries, banana, oranges, etc) and vitamins. Several investigations have suggested that omission of a good breakfast contributes to dietary inadequacies in children. Often called ‘brain food’, breakfast needs to be wholesome and it should essentially contain all the vital nutrients that the body craves for.
No matter how busy you are, make sure to have your healthy breakfast daily, a study says that skipping the morning meal too often could put you at risk of developing heart disease. Researchers at the University of Tasmania have found that leaving the house on an empty stomach leads to obesity, larger fat stores around the stomach and higher cholesterol levels — all major risk factors for heart disease.
Plan your morning so you can include time to eat a healthy breakfast to avoid the consequences of skipping it. This could be getting fatter due to you eating junk food in the middle of the morning to stop the craving for food. Much of this is just common sense use it and you will come out on top of the game, but since common sense is not what it use to be I don’t take responsibility by asking you to use it.
