We’ve all heard that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Many Aussies eat 3 staple meals per day, others maybe only two. If you’re one of the ones that don’t consume 3 meals daily, then don’t make breakfast the meal you skip.

Let’s take a look at just some of the reasons why you should always strive to eat breakfast.

You’re Effectively Breaking Your Overnight Fast

None of us eat while we’re sleeping and if you sleep 8 hours and didn’t have anything to eat for at least several hours before you retired for the night, that’s a minimum of 10 or more hours you’ve been fasting.

As the name suggests, breakfast breaks the overnight fast and re-energises your body and mind for the day ahead.

Get the Vitamins and Minerals You Need

Your body needs a balance of all the essential vitamins, minerals and nutrients to perform at its optimum best. Eating a healthy breakfast goes a long way towards ensuring you get just that. Vitamins such as Vitamin C and D, calcium, iron, B Vitamins and fibre are all equally as important.

If you are struggling to eat breakfast daily, or your breakfast choices aren’t the best in the world, then supplement with multivitamin capsules.

Maintain Weight Control By Eating Breakfast

In theory, it might seem you’re likely to lose more weight and stubborn body fat if you skip breakfast and continue to be active. Sure, you’re still burning calories but what can happen is your body may go into “starvation mode”. In order to protect itself, when you do eventually eat something, the body will likely store some of those calories as fat reserves to see you through the periods where you starve yourself.

Not eating breakfast can also slow your metabolism down, which leads to the ineffective burning of calories and potential weight gain.

Breakfast Gives Your Brain a Much-Needed Morning Boost

Food doesn’t just feed the muscles and the body, it’s also essential for normal brain function. In fact, when someone hasn’t eaten for some time, it’s often the brain that begins to suffer even before the body does.

You need food, oils and nutrients to get the wheels in your brain clicking over and functioning properly. Your ability to focus and concentrate markedly improves once you’ve consumed a meal and given it some time to be digested. This is especially true of breakfast.

Boost your brain and don’t skip the most important meal of the day.

Too Much Coffee On An Empty Stomach

Many people enjoy having a few coffees throughout the day, especially at the start of the day. Now while one coffee on an empty stomach might give you a buzz and an initial lift, drinking too much coffee without breakfast can end up having negative results.

To start with, your stomach will begin to feel raw. Secondly, all that caffeine with no food can render a person jittery. If you like to have some sugar with your coffee, you might experience a brief sugar (and caffeine) rush, followed by a sudden drop in brain power and energy.

Breakfast Doesn’t Have To Be Limited To Eating At Home

If you have some time on your hands, then you don’t have to limit yourself to only ever eating breakfast at home. With so many cafes and restaurants in Australia offering a breakfast menu, it can be nice to treat yourself to breakfast out from time to time. For example, the types of breakfasts offered in Sydney can be very diverse and this can be true of most major metropolitan areas.

Many venues will serve up traditional meals such as bacon and eggs or sausages and eggs on toast, but there are also many interesting and more exotic choices available today. Ingredients like avocado and chicken have become favourites on the breakfast plate. There are loads of different options to go with your morning coffee.
