Why you shouldn't skip breakfast

Skipping breakfast is a common strategy for people who are trying to lose weight, but unfortunately it has the opposite effect. It encourages us to snack more throughout the day because we feel more hungry. So have breakfast to crave less all day.

Research shows that having breakfast helps us control our weight. Eating the biggest meal of the day earlier, increases the chances that you can burn off the calories you take in and reduces the temptation to snack on foods high in fat and sugar.

Moreover, breakfast can be a valuable source of nutrients, if we skip it, we can miss out on essential nutrients (like the ones on the dairy).

It's a fact that people who eat breakfast are less likely to be overweight, perform better at school/work and have better concentration than those who don‘t. So remember, food is fuel for your body, start your day right.

If your excuse is the lack of time, as you head out the door, grab a drinking non-fat yogurt and a snack bar ;)
