Why skip breakfast?

I know some people will say "if only she knew how busy I was" Lol. My dear, no matter how busy you are, please try not to skip breakfast again. You know what they say; breakfast is the most important meal of the day. This is very true because from my own experience, whenever I skip breakfast, I tend to binge throughout the whole day and I end up feeling bad and regretting my action.  Don't get me wrong, you should definitely fast if you need to but, afterwards please try and recoup with nutritious meals, your body will thank you for it.

I decided to write about this today because a few of my friends love to skip breakfast and they give excuses like: "I am not a breakfast person" , "if I eat now I will sleep all day" , "I had a lot to eat last night" , "I am not a tea person" duh!! Hahahahahaha!!!

By eating breakfast you get to kick-start your day and you feel rejuvenated and very alive, even if it is a glass of fruit smoothie. I like my breakfast light for example eggs, oats, tea. But you can have it heavy if you must. Hmmmm, I'm not saying you should load up with eba o! According to WebMD, here are some of the reasons why you must not skip breakfast:
  • Breakfast eaters are healthier, they have good blood and sugar levels.
  • They feel more energized, more strength and endurance for the days physical activities.
  • They have better cholesterol levels.
  • They remember better, they have improved concentration and performance.
  • They consume less fat and more nutrients.

Now aren't these reasons good enough for you not to skip breakfast again? Hmmmm. These are some of the goodies I love to have for my breakfast, if you have a busy lifestyle, you can pack up your breakfast and have it once you get to the office.
  • Eggs
  • Oatmeal
  • Wheat bread
  • Bananas
  • Cereals (Kellogg's special K, Cheerios, fruit n fibre, all bran etc.)
  • Fruits (smoothie or plain raw)
Some people like coffee in the morning which is fine, but I prefer Plain tea. Remember guys portion control is key, not because a particular food is healthy for you, then you are free to kill yourself with it, nooooo! 

God bless you,
