Healthy Breakfast for Weight Loss

After going 10 – 12 hours overnight without food, energy reserves are low and your body and brain need fuel. What you choose to eat at breakfast can affect your mood, physical and mental performance, weight and your general and long term health.

Most nutritionists consider breakfast to be the most important meal of the day. Researchers in Nottingham investigated the effects of skipping breakfast on energy metabolism and found that skipping breakfast led to higher cholesterol levels and lower insulin sensitivity both risk factors for cardiovascular disease.

Breakfast can help weight control
If you miss breakfast you are much more likely to get hungry mid morning and end up grabbing a snack that is high in calories and fat but low in nutrients and fibre. Studies show that children who regularly eat breakfast are healthier and less likely to be overweight. In fact teenagers who ate a nutritional breakfast more than five times a week weighed less, had a smaller waist size and lower blood sugar levels than those who rarely
ate cereal. Research among adult’s shows that people who eat breakfast are more likely to be within the ideal weight range than people who skip breakfast.
