“Breakfast is the most important meal of the day.” How many times have we heard this before? If it’s so important why is it skipped so much, and why is it integral for a fat burning diet? The reason breakfast is so important is because it breaks the fast you’ve had overnight, and restocks the body’s supplies of glucose and other essential nutrients that are used for energy throughout the day. This is normally essential for the brain and the body first thing in the morning. It’s also one of the reasons people who skip breakfast will normally feel tired, irritable, and restless in the morning.
More importantly, eating breakfast is essential to a fat burning diet. Firstly one of the most important things about eating a healthy breakfast is that it allows you to curl your hunger and prevent snacking and binge eating later on during the day (though if you skip breakfast and have to snack try something healthy like fresh fruit or yogurt). This will help you to lose weight due to the fact you’ll be consuming fewer calories during the day.
Secondly, a healthy breakfast will boost your metabolism, and keep you burning fat all day. If you do not eat breakfast your body will put itself into starvation mode and try to conserve every bit of energy that it can. Eating breakfast tells your body that now we’re awake, we’re not fast anymore, and we’re ready to burn fat and use energy during the day. There is not a specific amount you should eat for breakfast but a balanced healthy meal containing protein and carbohydrates will be a great way to kick-start your metabolism for the day.
Remember not to skip breakfast, even a quick glass of orange juice in the morning is better than nothing. Breakfast truly is the most important meal of the day.
