Be a King: Kickstart Your Day with a Healthy Breakfast

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. However, this is not some old wives’ tale or just a way for your mother to make you eat your morning meal. Numerous studies have repeatedly shown that kick starting your day with breakfast helps you stay healthy and fit.

 

Why kick start your day with breakfast?

  • It boosts metabolism

Not eating for hours as you sleep slows down your metabolism. So, when you break the fast, you give your metabolism a good kick, which would get your engine humming. It also helps burning calories that could contribute to weight gain, when left to become stored fat.

  • Stabilizes blood sugar throughout the day

Your morning meal, especially a healthy one, will keep your energy/blood sugar levels stable during the day. Make sure to eat a good amount of healthy fats and proteins, so that you feel fuller for a longer period with little to no cravings.

  • Prevent weight gain

If you’ve skipped your morning meal before, you probably felt hungry mid-morning, hungrier an hour before lunch, and hungriest when the clock strikes 12. Can you remember eating like a cow during lunchtime? Yes, doing that is exactly why you’re gaining weight and you’ve got a muffin top. If you don’t have time to cook breakfast, eat breakfast cereal, or grab a bar of Ancient Grains.

  • Fuels your brain and body

Breakfast kick starts your day as it fuels your brain and body, improving your productivity and concentration throughout the day. Can you imagine working hard when you’re hungry? Even thinking and focusing on what you’re doing would probably feel like a real struggle on an empty stomach.

  • Lowers the risk of diabetes in women

A study published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition revealed that women who skipped breakfast or only ate an average of 6 breakfasts per week have a higher risk of developing type 2 diabetes. So, next time you want to skip a morning meal, think about its effect on your health in the long run.

  • Lowers the risk of heart disease in men

If women are at risk of type 2 diabetes when they skip breakfast, men are at risk of heart disease. Studies show that men between the ages 45 and 82 are likely to experience hypertension, elevated blood sugar levels, and insulin resistance if they don’t eat in the morning.

Still, think if skipping breakfast is good for you?
