This post is for anyone who skips breakfast on a regular basis and is attempting to shed excess pounds at the same time.
Unless you binged during the night, you more than likely have gone without eating for 9-12 hours by the time you wake up in the morning. Consuming food at that point breaks the overnight fast that you’ve been on.
If you forego the first meal of the day, you probably have a variety of reasons for why you are not eating; many of which can be found on the list below:
- Trying to consume less calories
- Not enough time to make or grab something
- Always running late to work, school, etc.
- Only eat when get to work, school, etc.
- Don’t like what’s currently in the cupboard or fridge
- Too busy taking care of others in your household
- Not really hungry
- Not a ‘morning person’
- Only have coffee and/or tea for breakfast
Skipping breakfast can lead to weight gain, because at some point during the day your body’s innate programing kicks in to ensure you survive your self-imposed famine. And if at any point during the morning you got emotionally triggered by anyone or anything, you may reach for food and be unable to stop yourself, as your body demands nutrients and your inner child demands comfort foods.
It’s to your waistline’s advantage to have a balanced breakfast consisting of roughly equal amounts of healthy fats and proteins and carbs. For when you fuel your body with nutrients first thing in the morning, you start a healthy habit that sets you up to succeed. After all, breakfast really is the most important meal of the day.
