Importance of Breakfast in Weight Loss
What I noticed with some diets is that breakfast is usually very small or in some cases usually eliminated. Some people tend to eliminate this in their diets as they believe it will help them lose weight. I’m not sure how accurate this is because believe it or not, this is not the case.
Breakfast as they say is the most important meal of the day. When we sleep at night, our bodies are in a certain long overnight fast. So waking up in the morning, all you need is something to fuel you up to start the day.
Research has proven that, those who eat breakfast are more likely to participate and perform during the rest of the day than those who don’t. The reason being that because you’ve not had any food after a long 8-9 hours, you are unable to function properly.
Also it is also seen that those who eat breakfast are less likely to crave during the rest of the day compared to those who don’t. A nice healthy breakfast will keep you fuller for longer hence making you less likely to binge uncontrollably during the rest of the day and hence good for weight loss. Wholegrain cereals are perfect in this case and oatmeal as they are high in fibre and can keep you fuller for longer.
Next time you are in a hurry to go to work or leave the house in the morning, grab a banana or a cereal bar. It helps to have some food in the morning at least.
