Breakfast... Why is it the most important meal of the day?
The most commonly skipped meal is breakfast. Even people who eat breakfast, often do not consume densely nutritious food. After fasting all night, your body is ready for fuel. If you do not provide it, the body will access stored glycogen in the liver, eventually placing a lot of stress on that organ. If you restrict complex carbohydrates, the body begins breaking down muscle tissue in order to provide glycogen to the system.
People often cite lack of hunger as a reason for skipping breakfast. It won't take long, once you start eating in the morning for the hunger signal to return. Others state weight loss as a reason they started skipping breakfast. Studies show that people who eat breakfast burn more calories throughout the day than people who do not.
It is not only important to eat breakfast, but necessary to consume a great breakfast if you are interested in optimal health. A high fiber, complex carbohydrate breakfast is best of all! Breakfast should contain a high concentration of complex carbohydrates, the body's most usable form of fuel. We recommend Wellness Therapy For Me's Breakfast Smoothie
