SHOULD YOU EAT BREAKFAST LIKE A KING OR IS IT JUST A SAY?
What do they say?
Breakfast is an important meal that furnishes energy for the day.
What do we believe?
Breakfast as a fact could be unhealthy and may lead to gain weight.
We all know the proverb “Eat breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince, and dinner like a beggar”.
But is there any truth behind this?
You all deserve to be treated like a king, also eat breakfast like a king…but that does not mean that you will nurture yourself with an unhealthy breakfast full of carbohydrates and fats. A healthy breakfast should be fresh, vibrant and rich in protein, whole grains, fibres, fruits and vegetables that offer the best nutrients to kick off the new and energetic day. A good mix of colours flavours and savours are the pillars of a healthy and delicious breakfast that helps to awake and boosting of the body.
Why you should consider eating breakfast?
There are two main reasons why you should always consider eating a breakfast: firstly it’s purely biological and secondly due to one's behaviour.
In the morning, after a good sleep and long fast, the body needs new fuel to energise so as to reach its peak of the physical, mental and professional performance. So, choose to have a nutritious breakfast!!!
Leaving home without having eaten the breakfast, will strike up to eat more during the day time and may lead to overeating and hence weight gain will be enhanced. Many different types of research show the positive influence regarding eating breakfast to maintain a balanced relationship with food and health across the day.
But feeding soon after waking up spikes up the insulin level and may lead to gain weight…WHY???
When we wake up, the stress hormones (cortisol) in our body is at its peak and causes the body to be resistant to insulin, due to which the blood insulin level rise higher post-breakfast more than post-lunch or dinner.
But we aren’t asking you to skip breakfast, just do this:
Once you are awake and off the bed, have a glass of warm water or you may add lemon and honey for the soothing flavour in it, it helps to cleanse the system and also prepare the system to digest food easily throughout the day…
