Forbes Living Asks: Is Breakfast Really the Most Important Meal of the Day
Ever since we were small, our parents told us that breakfast “fuels the day”. But a study is out which basically turns the mom mantra on its head. Forbes Living wonders if breakfast is really the most important meal of the day.
People who are following a weight loss program are told to have breakfast since it reportedly kicks up metabolism and curbs hunger throughout the day. Breakfast is also a meal which is sharpens cognitive processes. The study, which was conducted for weight loss research, focused more on whether eating breakfast or not helped patients lose weight. The results found were that eating breakfast didn’t seem to make any difference at all.
However, Forbes Living TV believes that positive, steady weight loss can be obtained when we eat a healthy, proportional meal. Our bodies need food for strength and to stay healthy. Skipping breakfast only makes us feel more tired and cranky until we take a break to eat. And other studies have shown that eating a well-balanced breakfast helped people keep unwanted pounds off longer than those who skipped the morning meal. So go ahead and have some breakfast. It fuels the body and the brain for the day.
