Almost everyone wishes to stay healthy and live healthy.
However living a healthy life requires major effort on your
part. You will need to diet, you will need to exercise, and
you will need to look out for yourself in order to be
healthy. However, there is one thing that you can do that
will contribute greatly to your health. That one thing is
eating a healthy breakfast every day of your life, to start
the day. It is essential for weight loss as well as for
Most people unfortunately skip breakfast for sake of weight
loss and sometimes to save time on their way to work.
Actually, this is one of the worst things that you can do to
your body. A research done by scientists indicated that when
the body doesn't start with a healthy breakfast, the
metabolic rate will drop down considerably and thus this
will also cause a spike in your blood sugar levels. This
will also cause you to eat bigger meals and unhealthy snacks
during the day and because your metabolism has reduced
itself in the morning, you will be able to burn less
calories. Thus, you will not only gain weight, but your body
will also be thrown in an imbalance when you don't eat
However, eating breakfast will solve your problems greatly
as your body will feel full and satisfied. Your metabolic
rate will increase along with thermo genesis (the rate of
energy burning by your body). Your blood sugar levels will
balance out and you will not feel the craving for extra
snacks and foods for 4-5 hours.
In any case, you should take care to eat a healthy
breakfast. However, it will need to be balanced in order to
be healthy. This means that a huge plate of scrambled eggs
and lots of bacon is out of the picture. You should take
care to eat things like fibers, proteins, and in general
nutritious food. Here is a list of things that you can eat
in order to make a health breakfast. In total, what you eat
for breakfast should not be more than 2 or 3 servings
1. A bowl of cereal (whole grain). 2. A bowl of oatmeal. 3.
An apple or an orange (or apple juice or orange juice). 4.
Hardboiled egg (don't fry them for health and weight loss
purposes). 5. Skimmed Milk. 6. Low fat cheese. 7. Brown
bread - toasted (never eat white bread). 8. Walnuts, pecans
and any nuts in general. 9. Any raw vegetables like carrots,
tomatoes, peppers etc. 10. A low fat protein shake or a
nutrition shake. 11. A cup of tea with no sugar.
As you can see, a healthy breakfast is comprised of healthy
food. Eating a balanced breakfast will also help you in your
quest for losing weight. It will restore the balance of your
body, so that you will not feel the need to eat snacks or
huge meals during the day. Moreover, you will also feel
better during the day, compared to people who skip
