"Breakfast is the most important meal of the day.”

It's been drilled into our heads since we were young but did you ever really understand why?

There are actually a wide variety of reasons why breakfast is important but HOW is it the MOST IMPORTANT meal of the day?

Well, here are a few scientifically proven reasons....followed by my own "scientific" experiment.

 

Why Breakfast Is SO Important:

 

1. You Are Essentially Jumpstarting Your Metabolism For The Day

Assuming you aren't indulging in donuts or bagels with cream cheese and bacon - no offense bacon, I still love you - daily and you set yourself up for success with a more healthful option (whole grains, steel cut oats, etc), your metabolism will get itself rolling for the day.

 

2. You'll Have Improved Concentration Throughout Your Day

Having a "nutritionally complete" breakfast will keep you fuller for longer thus hunger pains will not distract you from the task/work/job at hand.

 

3. You Will Be Less Likely To Binge On Snacks And Other Crap Later

A well-balanced breakfast will help deter you away from poor snack choices later on in the day, because, going back to #2, you'll have a full belly.

If you're afraid you'll be hungry like 1-2 hours post breakfast, bring a piece of fruit or some veggies with you to munch on when the hunger strikes.

Now, while I'd say I'm pretty well versed in the breakfast and general nutrition game, I decided to put it to the test and skip breakfast for a day.

Here are my results:

No Breakfast Trial:

9:00am - Just got to work. Not too hungry yet but I feel my stomach preparing to eat itself because I'm pretty sure I am hollow at the moment.

10:27am - OMG, I can't. A co-worker brought double chocolate chunk muffins.

DOUBLE CHOCOLATE CHIP MUFFINS.

I reach for one in denial.

Maybe if I only eat the muffin top I won't feel as bad. SCREW IT.

[takes entire muffin to the face.]

Well that trial escalated quickly.

Eat your breakfast, people! Don't be a desperate muffin eater.

I promise you're whole day will be substantially improved by a good breakfast.

Bon a petit!
