Did you know that eating a healthy breakfast can actually help you control your weight?
It’s absolutely true. A regular breakfast schedule can also help you keep the weight off.
Because eating breakfast helps to reduce hunger later in the day, so it’s easier for you to avoid overeating.
When you skip breakfast, it’s likely that you’ll feel ravenous around mid-morning and want to reach for fat-food like candy or doughnuts. Not only that, skipping breakfast is really prolonged fasting and it can cause an increase in insulin, which in turn increases fat storage and weight gain.
The fact is, skipping breakfast actually increases your risk of weight gain and obesity.
Eating a healthy breakfast…
- Can put you on track to better, healthier food choices throughout the rest of the day… you tend to eat a healthier diet overall.
- Skipping breakfast leads to skipping healthy fruits and veggies the rest of the day. Gives you more energy because it refuels your body and replenished glycogen (carbs) stores that supply your muscles with immediate energy.
- In turn, you have more energy for physical activity throughout the day.
So if you want to control your weight and keep it off, think twice before skipping breakfast, even when you’re running late or trying to cut calories.
