Did you know how important a breakfast can be? Allow us to tell you that!
Some people skip breakfast because they don’t have much time in the morning, some skip it because they think that they’ll be able to eat something later when they’ll get to work, some do it because they want to lose weight, and so on. However, skipping breakfast will hardly do you any good.
If you gain weight or feel tired all the time, you should start having a healthy breakfast and see what happens next.
When we wake up in the morning, we don’t have much energy left from a previous day. Basically, food is what gives us energy and during the night we digest everything we’ve eaten this day. So it’s important to charge yourself right after you wake up. That’s why nutritionists recommend having a breakfast during the first two hours after you wake up.
Also, it’s important to make this breakfast healthy and nutritious enough. It is easier for our bodies to digest food that we eat in the first half of a day and that’s the main reason people still gain weight if they skip their breakfast. A proper breakfast has to contain 20-35% of your daily calories and nutrients: in other words, it has to be so nutritious to keep you energetic during the day. When you skip breakfast, you don’t receive this amount of calories and nutrients, and so you start craving them later, in the middle of a day or in the evening. However, everything we eat in the evening affects our weight the most: we don’t waste much energy during the night and so the calories transform into fat instead of burning. That’s why people still gain weight even though they skip their breakfast: the less you eat in the morning, the hungrier you’ll get in the evening.
When you have a proper breakfast, you’ll basically wake up your body and start your metabolism processes. Nutritionists recommend eating 4-5 times a day in small portions because it boosts metabolism: this way your body digests food quicker and so doesn’t store much fat. That’s why a healthy breakfast actually can help you to lose weight.
However, weight loss and energy boost are not the only benefits of a healthy breakfast. It also helps raise your mood well as your body doesn’t stress over the lack of the food and you feel better. Moreover, it improves your brain functions too, allowing you to concentrate easier and do your work quicker.
However, this doesn’t have to be this tough. You can prepare something in the evening so you’ll need to cook less in the morning. You can have ready-made green juices or organic yoghurts for breakfast. Or you can try various cereals as a healthy and nutricious breakfast.
Yes, adding breakfast to your morning routine can be complicated, especially if you didn’t have it before. However, it can benefit you in so many ways too! That’s why we hope you’ll make the right choice.
