Is breakfast the most important meal of the day? Every day, our parents told us that if we wanted to be strong and healthy we would need to eat our breakfast, even though most of the time we wouldn’t want to. The thing is, this doesn’t just apply as a child, even as an adult the rule still applies!
It’s correct, breakfast is vital to your overall health and if you eat the right foods it will set up you up for a productive day and make you feel more energised. Besides your body will thank you for nourishing it so early during the day.
WHY? When you get out of bed, you have already been fasting for 8 or more hours due to sleeping.
Provided that you intend to lose some extra fat, when you eat breakfast first thing in the morning it actually breaks the fast (hence the name) but does it keep you further away from your fat loss goals?
Breakfast has always been a regular part of people’s lives so it’s only natural that it’s one of the things included in our morning routine. It’s almost subconscious. We always hurry to eat before going to school, work, training at the gym or whatever plans made for the day.
