Day 5: Breakfast Should Be Your Priority

Philippe H.

Essentially, breakfast is a very important meal to start the day. Studies have shown that people who eat breakfast are 12.3% healthier for the whole day. This is because the body has experienced a kind of fast through the night, and breakfast comes with a burst of energy to fill that gap. You should know that the body undergoes some breaking down of food processes while we are asleep. For one, the liver breaks down glycogen, necessary to balance the sugar level in the blood; and you know, the brain also requires an adequate supply of glucose to function properly.

If the body is to have its much needed supply of nutrients such as calcium, iron, vitamins, fibre and folate, then it is better to make breakfast a priority. Hence, it has been dubbed “the most important food of the day”.

According to a recent nutrition survey of Australian children and adolescents, the following people were revealed to skip breakfast more:

  • People who experienced little sleep;
  • People who had poor diet;
  • Underweight or overweight people.
Research has also shown the high possibility for people who take breakfast to be less obese, since it regulates appetite, therefore forestalling incessant hunger pangs. This way, a person may also reduce the risks of frequent illness.
