Why You Should Eat Breakfast

Breakfast is one of the most important meals of the day!  It gives you the fuel for your body and brain need to start your day and accomplish all the things you want while fighting off those hunger pains before lunch time.  Studies show that children who eat breakfast perform better on tests and in school and the same goes with adults, who perform better on work projects, ect. in their daily jobs.  Your body and brain needs to be refueled a few times each day.  So when you skip meals, your so hungry that when lunch time comes, most will tend to overeat.

Some experts believe eating breakfast keeps your metabolism running because skipping meals causes the body to kick into 'starvation' mode.  While any breakfast may be better than no breakfast, there are some foods you might want to avoid because they're high in sugars, sodium, saturated fats and calories.   Cut back on sugary cereals (over 5.0 grams per serving), high-calorie pastries, and meats like bacon and sausage that are high in saturated fat and sodium.

Your dailiy breakfast should include protein and plenty of fiber; the combination will help satisfy your hunger and will keep you feeling full until lunch time.  Healthy sources of protein can come from low-fat meat, eggs, nuts or dairy products.  High-fiber foods include fruits, vegetables and whole grains.  Try a hard boiled egg, whole grain toast and 100% fruit juice with no added sugar, or a bowl of whole-grain cereal with berries and low-fat milk.
