Did you start your day with a healthy Breakfast?
Five Health Benefits of Breakfast
Weight loss isn’t the only positive effect of eating breakfast – studies reveal it can affect our body in all manner of health-promoting ways:
Increased Energy – Researchers have found that breakfast eaters have 10% more energy than breakfast skippers, probably because the fibre in many breakfast foods helps fight constipation, a known cause of fatigue.
Healthier Hearts – Skipping breakfast increases levels of cholesterol in the body. Exactly why isn’t known.
Lowered Diabetes Risk – Exposure to high levels of insulin in the body is one of the risk factors of type II diabetes, but the same study found that breakfast eaters are more sensitive to the insulin produced in their body which naturally keeps levels lowered.
Fewer Colds and Flu – When researchers looked at sickness rates, breakfast skippers generally experienced at least one minor illness in the 10 week study while breakfast eaters escaped illness.
Denser Bones – The higher levels of nutrients in the diets of breakfast eater’s means they tend to have thicker bones than breakfast skippers, reducing the risk of osteoporosis.
If you can get our for a 30 minute walk at breakfast time, you will increase your weight loss by at least 166g a week, plus by walking on an empty stomach you will increase the amount of fat you burn, potentially leading to faster inch-loss as well. It’s not recommended that you do more intensive exercise on an empty stomach; have something light such as a piece of fruit before you start. And remember to eat your breakfast as soon as you get back home to prevent low glycogen stores making you feel hungry.
