Breakfast for Champs!
What’s the big deal about breakfast? This is a question commonly asked by children and youngsters alike. You wouldn’t want to drive to a certain place without fuel in your car, so why would you want you body to function without its fuel? People don’t realize the importance of breakfast, so let me sum it up for you in a sentence. ‘It is the most important meal of the day!’
Breakfast literally means ‘Breaking the Fast’. An average amount of time a person sleeps at night is 7-8 hours. During this time period, our body is deprived of its energy and nutrients. Breakfast replenishes the energy levels that our body loses, so that we can start the day fully charged. It gives or body the necessary kick to start functioning properly and effectively.
The first meal of the day increases the metabolism and without it, the body does not process the future meal, as quickly; thus retaining its nutrients. This results in a state of fasting. Hence, research proves that it is more difficult for those people to lose weight, who skip breakfast.
There are many good reasons to eat breakfast, some of which are enlisted below:
- Eating breakfast enhances cognitive ability, learning, memory, attention, and verbal abilities.
