Breakfast is King

What I have come across when speaking and chatting to  clients is that they do not have breakfast in the morning. Instead they are waiting till lunchtime to have their first meal

This is not great at all as studies have shown that we are more than likely to gain more weight, and then have an increased chance of having dietary lifestyle diseases. When we do not have breakfast what happens is that we tend to have a larger meal which entails that we have excess calories/ fat etc and then we are doing this everyday, then that's when things start adding up. What also happens is that any meal will be retained by the body because it is not sure when the next meal will be. Finally the meals that we tend to have have too little nutrition value, low in fibre,  saturated fat, and sugar, which can cause high cholesterol and increased chances of high blood pressure.

So in this post I am promoting the importance of breakfast every morning. Variety is key so that we are getting lots of macronutrients as well as micronutrients. I really do try to have breakfast every morning regardless if I am running really late for work, sometimes it can be pieces of granary toast, or if I have alot of time it can be crumpets with scrambled eggs, and smoked salmon. The pictures I have put up is that but also this morning I had porridge with strawberries and blueberries. Oats are fantastic as they are high in fibre, low glycemic index, but with the fruit included I am trying to get portions of fruit and vegetables in there, as well as the vitamins and minerals.

So try not to skip breakfast, breakfast is the most important meal for the day.

  1. Absolutely! I used to skip breakfast, opting instead to grab a coffee on my way into work. It left me feeling so tired and hungry by midday. I always make it a point to eat something healthy now and I feel so much better.
