Undoubtedly, breakfast is the most important meal of the day. A lot of us used to skip breakfast: some like sleeping too late, some are too rushed in the mornings, and some think that this is the way to lose some weight. However, it is proven that skipping breakfasts is not an efficient tool for weight loss. Skipping morning meals eventually leads to consuming more calories during the day. A good breakfast is especially valuable for children, teenagers and students, who need to get necessary nutrients for successful and efficient studying.
Therefore, if you want to remain always healthy and fit, do not forget to have a good breakfast before starting your day. The best and the healthiest breakfast should contain protein and fiber. Also, it is very important to avoid hurry-up breakfasts and even not to eat something prepared in haste. Specialists underline that the best and the most effective breakfast should include 2 eggs. Eggs contain our daily dose of proteins and promote weight loss. Therefore, eating a 2-egg omelet or just boiled eggs for breakfast is the most popular and healthy idea.
If you are concerned about your weight management issues, you can opt for some cereals with low fat milk, some yogurt or cottage cheese with dry fruit, or some fresh fruit, like oranges or grapefruit containing lots of Vitamin C and fiber. But if you are happy with you BMI and can afford enjoying something sweet for breakfast, you can choose a French toast, pancakes, bagel or a sandwich, a fruit salad with cream, a piece of cheesecake or English muffin, beans or nuts. However, try to avoid having pastry or doughnuts every morning since such meals are really high in sugar, fat and calories.
Remember: when you are hungry, your body has a tend to burn calories much slower (in order to preserve some energy for your daily activities). That is why you should never skip breakfasts! A good breakfast will help you not only charge your body with proper amounts of positive energy and optimism, but also will provide your body with all the vitamins, minerals and other nutrients necessary for normal functioning. Fuel up every morning with a good and healthy breakfast!Author Info: Hi! My name is Carla and I am a 5th year medical student at HYMS.
