Are you someone who rarely eats breakfast? If you answered ‘Yes’ to this question, then this could be the reason why your weight is going up & your energy levels are going down.
Breakfast is considered an important meal because it breaks the overnight fasting period (think about the word ‘break-fast’) and replenishes your supply of glucose that will have been depleted overnight. You really need to top up your glucose levels as this helps to give you a big swag of energy ready to burn during the long day ahead.
Apart from providing us with energy, breakfast helps to provide us with nutrients such as calcium, iron and B vitamins as well as protein and fibre. The body needs these essential nutrients and research shows that if these are missed at breakfast, they are less likely to be compensated for later in the day.
The best breakfast to have is a high protein one as it will not raise your blood sugar levels (which means less of the hormone insulin is released), it takes longer to digest in the gut and so will keep your appetite satisfied for longer. Make the switch to protein-breakfasts today and get ready to ‘feel’ the difference: not just to your appetite but also your energy.
