A well-balanced breakfast is vital to your health and mood.
You’ve heard it before: “Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. “ And it’s true! A well-balanced healthy breakfast will impact the quality of your day, your health and your mood.
Here are the top three reasons why you’ll never want to skip breakfast again:
Eating breakfast helps you lose weight. Breakfast helps get your metabolism going, and it alleviates the hunger from overnight. (Studies show that skipping breakfast causes people to eat more at lunch.)
Eating breakfast helps you focus better. Breakfast is fuel; if you skip it, your body and brain will have a harder time getting started and functioning at peak levels.
Eating breakfast improves energy levels. A well-balanced breakfast of complex carbohydrates, protein and moderate fat provides energy slowly over time for maximum sustained energy response.
Now, before you bust out the bacon and donuts, know that these benefits to breakfast only apply when eating a healthy breakfast. If consumed on their own, high-sugar and high-fat foods negate the positive effects of refueling in the morning. Search the labels of any prepackaged foods for sugar, protein and fat content.
To maximize the benefits of breakfast, choose a healthy balance of complex carbohydrates, fiber, protein, and low-to-moderate fat.
