          The benefits of breakfast.

Many dietitians and nutritionists consider breakfast to be the most important meal of the day. After a number of hours without food, our bodies literally need to break the fast to renew our energy reserves and re-fuel the brain and body. There is considerable evidence showing many health benefits to those who regularly eat breakfast.

 Breakfast can provide you with essential nutrients that the body needs, such as fiber, vitamins and iron. It has been shown that people who eat breakfast have more balanced diets than those who skip this meal, are less likely to be overweight and have reduced risk of certain diseases.

 Evidence shows that missing breakfast may lead you to snack on less healthy foods later on in the morning and you don’t necessarily catch up nutritionally later in the day either. Other benefits of tucking into a good breakfast in the morning include improved mental performance and concentration and better mood – something we could all do with in the morning.

 Breakfast is also important for anyone trying to lose weight or stay in shape. Ironically, many people think that skipping breakfast will help them lose weight but studies consistently show that those who eat breakfast are less likely to be overweight or obese whereas those who eat breakfast tend to be leaner and more likely to maintain weight over time.

Data from America show that children and adults who eat breakfast have healthier weights than those skip breakfast.  Those who skip breakfast on a regular basis are nearly five times more likely to be obese.

Having breakfast helps to stabilize blood sugar levels and this regulates appetite and energy. People who eat breakfast are less likely to be hungry and overeat during the rest of the day.
