Five reasons why breakfast is a must

It’s not an old wives’ tale – breakfast really is the most important meal of the day. In fact, a solid breakfast can make or break your fitness and weight-loss goals


1. Start your engine

Your body responds to not eating for hours and hours by slowing down its metabolic rate. By eating breakfast, you wake up your metabolism and get your engine running, burning those calories you need to burn to lose weight.


2. Lift your mood

Studies show that people who eat breakfast tend to be in better moods. If you start out with a healthy breakfast, then you set the mood for lunch. If you ate a proper breakfast, you’re more likely to choose something reasonable for lunch.


3. Drop the kilos

Studies have shown that people who eat breakfast have a better chance of losing weight, and keeping it off! When you skip meals, you’re so hungry by lunchtime that you tend to overeat .


4. Feed your mind

Eating breakfast has been proven to improve concentration, increase your problem solving capabilities, enhance overall mental performance and even boosts your memory.


5. Save time

If you and your kids regularly skip breakfast in the interest of saving time, calories, or getting a few more minutes of sleep, remember that eating a wholesome morning meal will probably save you time in the long run. By recharging the brain and body, you’ll be more efficient in just about everything you do.
