According to many Indian texts, breakfast is the most important meal. As per one saying one should consume breakfast like a king, lunch like a normal man and dinner like a poor. Here we are not talking about the financial status of someone, the saying just focuses on how important it is to have breakfast as the first meal in the morning. Breakfast is the most important meal for people from all spheres of life and if you are the one who skips breakfast just like that or if you skip breakfast because you don’t have time to sit down and eat, then consider the following points.
We need to eat something after the night sleep
When we sleep for almost 6-8 hours in the night, that is the time when we eat nothing and go on a fast. To break that fast we need to eat something in the morning. This will ensure that our blood sugar is in balance and insulin output will be proper.
We will not be hungry all through the day
Breakfast is a sure shot answer to all your hunger pangs which occur when you work continuously for hours together. Hunger-pangs incline people towards eating at odd hours and since healthy food might not be available at these hours, people tend to eat unhealthy quick fast food. Breakfast ensures high and constant energy levels and great metabolism.
Breakfast makes up for 25 percent of nutrition requirements in a day
A good breakfast should be loaded with a combination of various nutrients like carbohydrates, calcium, fiber, and protein. An ideal breakfast should have things like milk in any form, a fibrous fruit, protein-rich food items like egg and a toast.
It helps you maintain your body and lose weight
Since you have eaten in sufficient amounts during breakfast, you won’t have hunger cravings in the middle of the day and since you won’t munch on that oily fast food snack, you’ll save extra pounds. Breakfast in the morning loads you up with high nutrients, high energy levels and good metabolism, which can be a motivation to go for a good workout regime.
Breakfast keeps health issues at bay
Breakfast helps in keeping various kinds of heart diseases at a distance. It helps fighting back low energy levels, mood swings and in women especially it helps in preventing menstrual irregularity. Apart from that breakfast keeps you fresh all throughout the day.
