A healthy breakfast plays a pivotal role in maintaining a healthy weight and is essential for our complete well-being. Skipping breakfast is a bloody common thing that many folks do in their day-to-day lives and may be you are one among them.
Remember the days when your mom used to shout at you for skipping breakfast? Back then, you might have thought nothing goes wrong in missing a single breakfast. But it’s a big ‘NO’ because having breakfast 2-3 hours right after waking up plays a vital role in keeping you healthy.
So, let's know in detail why we should never skip breakfast.
Breakfast means breaking the fast after a whole night as we feel famished when we wake up with an empty stomach in the morning. For an instance, can you drive your car without petrol? No, right? This is what exactly happens when you miss your morning meal and run to your work.
People might have already heard a ton of times, 'Breakfast is the important meal of the day,' but only a few of them will follow it without fail.
There are good enough reasons why you shouldn’t skip your important meal of the day. Here are a few of them.
Having a healthy breakfast helps kick-start your metabolism and keeps you active throughout the day.
Breakfast restores your body and helps stabilize your blood sugar levels.
Skipping the morning meal makes you crave more the whole day. So, breaking your fast in the morning can help you curb unhealthy cravings.
A good breakfast helps you burn calories, fuels your brain to focus better on your whole day work.
Having a first meal of the day works as a mood booster and helps prevent your grogginess during the daytime.
Whilst many of us think that skipping meals aids in weight loss but it's not that. Skipping breakfast actually slows down your body's metabolism – which plays a key role in weight loss.
People who skip their breakfast regularly are at a greater risk of developing many health issues and becoming overweight is one among them.
Regular and healthy breakfast is also good for your waistline. So, people who wanna lose weight should include a healthy breakfast in their diet chart.
Make it a habit of eating anything healthy as your morning meal. Always remember, ‘Eat breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince and dinner like a pauper'. Follow it for a healthy 'you'.
