When you eat a well-balanced breakfast, it controls your cravings and boosts your energy.
Starting your day with a nutritious meal plate keeps your stomach full for hours and, in this manner, has health benefits.
1. Helps in Weight Loss by Preventing Overeating:
As the saying goes by Adele Davis, “EAT BREAKFAST LIKE A KING, LUNCH LIKE A PRINCE, AND DINNER LIKE A PAUPER” It is recommended to have a substantial yet nutritional breakfast instead of a large dinner to prevent Overeating later. It is also believed that people who eat big breakfasts tend to lose weight quicker than those who skip breakfasts as it helps them to cut their cravings.
2. Improves Concentration & Productivity:
Studies show that children and adults who don’t skip breakfast tend to perform better than those on an empty stomach. The morning meal helps you concentrate more, improves your memory and perform well academically.
3. Boosts Metabolism:
After fasting through the night for almost 10-12 hours, your metabolism slows down. When you skip your morning meal, you slow your body down and do not allow it to burn calories. Giving that body the morning meal, you choose to kick-start your metabolism and make wise choices throughout the day.
4. Keeps You in a Good Mood:
When you give your body the meal it wants to grow; it releases “endorphins” or feel-good hormones. It also helps you to relieve stress and anxiety.
5. Energizes the Body:
When you wake up and eat the first meal of the day, you break the fast of the entire night. It gives your body that meal which helps it to energize and boost the brain and make your muscles feel more robust.
