Not Hungry.. Should I Eat Breakfast?
There is a common misconception that skipping a meal will help you eat less and thus enable you to lose weight. However, the opposite is often true. Studies have consistently shown that those who do not eat breakfast tend to eat more sugary, fattening snacks throughout the morning than those who eat real food before leaving the house. What is more, people who do not eat breakfast often eat more than they should for lunch or dinner.
Naturally, you cannot eat anything you want nor as much as you want for breakfast and expect to lose weight. On the other hand, you should not miss such an important meal. High fiber cereal with low fat milk, fruit with low-fat yogurt or all natural fruit juice, eggs and a couple of pieces of whole wheat bread are just a few of the many healthy breakfast options. As long as your breakfast has ample protein in it, you should be good to go for the morning as your intake will give your body the energy it needs to get through the morning. Ensuring your breakfast is rich in fiber is also very important. Fiber helps your body eliminate toxins and waste, plus few people actually get enough fiber in their daily diets.
Many people who do not eat breakfast fail to do so because they are in a hurry to get out the door on their way to work or school. However, taking just a few minutes to grab something healthy to eat before leaving home can make a big difference in managing your weight. A healthy breakfast helps you eat healthy food portions throughout the day and also gives you the energy you need to work, study and care for your family.
