Start the Day with Breakfast

You’ve probably heard it all before. But breakfast is indeed the most important meal of the day.

In the morning, after a long night without food, it is essential to refuel in order to provide the body and mind with the necessary nutrients and energy to get through the first part of the day.  Our brain requires glucose or blood sugar to provide it with energy to function, whilst the muscles of our body need glucose to get the body working physically. After long periods without food, our blood sugar levels fall, causing tiredness and irritability amongst other symptoms that occur when you need to replenish your appetite.

Also those weightwatchers who think skipping breakfast is a good idea should think twice! According to research, skipping meals, especially breakfast, can actually make weight control more difficult. Breakfast skippers tend to eat more food than usual at the next meal or nibble on high-calorie snacks to stave off hunger. Bravo!
