Why Healthy Breakfast Is Important ?????

I received same question from many of my subscribers that "Does skipping breakfast helps in weight loss"

I found is very difficult to answer as some of the studies suggest you should never skip breakfast but some of the studies suggest skipping break fast also helps in weight loss.
After doing lot of analysis facts comparison, Finally came to an conclusion that whether you’re trying to lose weight, get in shape or just live a healthier life, eating healthy breakfast provides a variety of benefits.


In morning there is a gap of approximately 10-12 hours from your last meal and then also if you skip your breakfast your glucose levels starts  dropping. When this happens, your body compensates by releasing the glucose that has been stored in your muscle tissue and liver, called glycogen.

Once all the energy from the glycogen stored is used up, the body breaks down fatty acids to produce energy. Without carbohydrates, fatty acids are only partially oxidized, which can cause reduced energy levels.

Break Fast  words itself implies to "break the fast" which your are maintaining from your last night meal i.e dinner.

So here are the benefits of having a healthy breakfast in morning.

1: Provides energy for rest of the day

Breakfast acts as providing fuel to body and brain after an 10 to 12 hours of long fast, without breakfast you are effectively running on empty, like trying to start the your bike with no petrol on it.

Apart from giving you energy to start a new day, breakfast is also linked to many health benefits, including weight control and improved performance.

Breakfast food are good source of nutrients such as calcium, iron and B vitamins as well as protein and fibre.  Body need these nutrients at the very start of the day, if they are missed during the morning breakfast , there are very less chances that these nutrients are compensated in other meals .

As our breakfast mostly includes fruits and vegetables and these fruit and vegetables are good sources of vitamins and minerals .

2: Reduced hunger

 Eating healthy breakfast reduces your hunger in rest part of the day, which make it easier to avoid overeating junk food such as snacks, cold drinks . When you skip breakfast, you may feel loss of energy and hungry and in order to find a quick fix you might opt vending machine candy or doughnuts. 

In addition, the prolonged fasting that occurs when you skip breakfast can increase your body's insulin response, which in turn increases fat storage and weight gain.

3: Increases body Metabolism 

When you sleep, your metabolism tends to slow down. The only way to jump start your metabolism for the day is to start off right with a healthy breakfast. This will allow your body to start burning through calories from the very beginning of the day, rather than in the middle of it after you've eaten lunch.

4: Weight Loss

Greatest benefits of eating breakfast every morning is, you can lose weight by doing so. In one recent study, people who ate breakfast as their largest meal lost an average of 17.8 pounds over three months. 
The best part is, even if you eat too much or have something a little unhealthy, you still have the entire day to make up for it. Eating breakfast every morning is one of the easiest ways to lose weight and eat healthier.
Having healthy breakfast make you feel feel that will avoid you to have junk snacks, cold drinks etc, thus helping you in having balance calories intake .

5 Increases concentration level

Researchers have found people who never skip their very first meal of the day have more concentration level as compared to people who missed their breakfast.

Eating breakfast improves your thinking ability and keeps you at top mental performance. It provides your brain with fuel to enhance problem solving and memory retention.
Protein rich breakfast also helps in maintaining blood sugar levels normal and allow optimal cognitive function throughout the day.

6:  Crucial For Pregnant Womens

Breakfast is crucial for pregnant women, who are supporting the additional calorie needs of a growing fetus. For this population, “Breakfast is a vital meal to start the day with the proper balance of calories and nutrients,” Hendel says.

Specifically, breakfast can boost calcium and folic acid intake, both of which are imperative to a healthy pregnancy. Women who are pregnant require a higher-than-normal calcium intake, since a growing baby leeches calcium from their bones; plus folic acid helps prevent neural tube deformities..

So be good to yourself and eat healthy breakfast, as it will make you feel much better throughout the day.
