This month’s Health lab article is going to give you some great tips about the benefits of breakfast.
Many of us think breakfast is not necessary if you are in hurry, or we can just combine it with lunch. Some of us who want to diet may decrease their meals to only once a day, lunchtime, and skip breakfast because they think if they have just breakfast they will be hungry again soon enough and have to eat more. However in reality, the most important meal of the day is breakfast. The reason for that is when there is no energy from breakfast for our body to use; the body will extract nutrition from other organs to use instead, not fat or cellulite. As a result our body will emit certain acid.
If occurs too often, it will cause our body to lose the chemical balance resulting in the creation of more antioxidants. More antioxidants mean more toxins to our body, resulting in various diseases when we get older. Skipping breakfast will also make us lack the needed nutrition to work through morning time efficiently. Breakfast is also very important for the growth of children. Lack of breakfast means the lack of necessary nutrition such as proteins or certain fat, which help our memory, cognition and intelligence, impeding the learning process. For those who want to get into shape, breakfast is a very important meal because it will help stimulate the use of energy.
Dr. James M. Rippe, a specialist Cardiologist of the Rippe Lifestyle Institute, Shrewsbury, Massachusetts, USA, ran a study on 12,000 people about breakfast. The results are as follows: Women who have breakfast are less obese than those who don’t, despite what kind of food it is. Men who have breakfast with less calories such as ungrinded grain (brown rice, whole wheat bread, etc.), vegetable, fruit, peas and beans, etc., are more likely to get more nutrition and be less obese. The person who has low calories breakfast has the tendency to eat healthy food for other meals compared to those who have high calories breakfast. We can see that breakfast is very important, both to your normal daily life and to those who want to get into shape.
