“Eat breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince and dinner like a pauper.” (Adele Davis)
Breakfast, the first meal of the day is not usually considered as important as it should be considering the many benefits it provides us with. It is the most important meal of the day because of the many benefits that help you in the long-run to lead a healthy and productive life. Before we get to the benefits’ list, let me tell you what healthy breakfast actually is. According to the National Health Service,
“Eating breakfast has long-term health benefits. It can reduce obesity, high blood pressure, heart diseases, and diabetes.”
In short, a healthy breakfast is one which fulfills all your basic needs for vitamins, minerals, and several other nutrients essential for your health. It helps you freshen up and work with focus and determination. Given below is a list of the top five main reasons why you ought to have a healthy breakfast every single day.
1. It boosts your metabolism.
A healthy breakfast will not only give your digestive system a head start, it will also boost your entire metabolism phenomena thus keeping your body strong and healthy all day long and when you eat breakfast every single day, your metabolism process is much better than that of those who don’t.
2. It keeps you active and focused all day long.
Have you ever had your mind go numb and your head get heavy in the morning even after getting a shower? Skipping breakfast could be the reason. When you wake up in the morning, chances are, the energy you obtained from your dinner the previous night has been consumed by your body while you slept, so you don’t really have much energy left when you wake unless you recharge yourself with a proper breakfast. Once you’re done with that, you’ll be more active, more focused and definitely more productive for the rest of the day.
3. An active metabolism leads to a healthy weight.
It has been observed by my many doctors, dieticians and health experts that people who usually skip breakfast are more likely to be overweight. Although, most of the people plan on skipping breakfast thinking it will somehow help them lose the extra fats they carry with themselves but what they don’t know is that having a healthy breakfast every day could actually help them lose weight.
4. Lower chances of suffering from malnutrition.
A healthy breakfast reduces the risk of malnutrition which is a health condition where you either don’t have enough nutrients as per your body’s requirements or you have just so much of them that it’s downright unhealthy. Thus, a proper, healthy and balanced breakfast will help you live a healthy life.
5. Disease Prevention.
Believe it or not, guys but it has been scientifically proven that a healthy breakfast will prevent you from a number of harmful heart diseases, obesity i.e. being overweight, diabetes and high blood pressure, not to forget that it also helps keep your bad cholesterol under control.
