A recent survey found that at least 1 in 10 Americans skip breakfast altogether every day, yet we know that breakfast is the most important meal of the day! Many people skip breakfast because they say they are too busy in the morning and do not have the time to prepare breakfast. Others say it is because they simply do not feel hungry. However, even just eating something small and healthy can greatly impact your health for the better. Nutrition is very important! Read these three reasons why eating breakfast is beneficial for your health.
2. Weight Control - Losing or maintaining weight can be tricky, however skipping breakfast will not help. After going an entire night without eating, the body needs fuel. If a person waits until the afternoon, the body is most likely very hungry, which often results in over eating. Additionally, skipping breakfast causes the body to produce more insulin, which can cause the body to store more fat than usual.
Breakfasts recommended by Advanced Neurotherapy’s Health Coach Shayna:
- Omelets with veggies.
- Smoothies made with both fruit and veggies.
- Steel cut oats with a non-dairy milk (such as almond or coconut milk) and berries.
- One toasted piece of bread with avocado spread, topped with an egg and sliced tomato. This meal provides a mix of carbs, protein, and healthy fats. However, this choice is higher in calories, so keep this in mind while making food choices for the rest of the day.
