Wellness Wednesdays: Don’t Skip Breakfast!
It’s Wellness Wednesdays and for today’s tip, make sure you do not skip breakfast! Experts have always argued that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, but despite their warnings, many still continue to start each morning on an empty stomach. Are you guilty of this crime? If so, here are just a few reasons why you should not skip breakfast!
- It improves your metabolism. Breakfast is a great way to fire up your metabolism and keep your weight loss on track. However, when you skip it, the ability to burn fat and calories is reduced making weight loss more difficult.
- It decreases your chances of having mid-morning cravings. Eating breakfast regularly keeps you full and satisfied for a longer period of time and helps control sudden cravings. Researchers have found that when people skip breakfast, they are more prone to eat high sugar, high fat snacks with zero nutritional value to curb their appetite.
- It helps to maintain your energy. Skipping breakfast deprives your body of getting the energy it needs to get up and going each day. This lack of fuel can lead to you becoming lethargic, tired, and even worse, grumpy. (And who wants to deal with a grumpy co-worker all morning!)
