As generations pass, it seems like more and more people are skipping breakfast before work for a few extra minutes of Z’s. To most people, it’s a fair trade off considering they’re probably not hungry in the morning anyways, especially after weeks, months, even years of foregoing the most important meal of the day.
Well, stop it, because you’re costing your body health-wise by skipping breakfast than another 10 minutes of hitting the snooze button on your alarm clock.
Here are just some of reasons breakfast not only jumpstarts are day, but can lend to a healthier lifestyle:
? Consume more vitamins and minerals and less fat and cholesterol
? Have better concentration and productivity throughout the morning
? Control their weight
? Have lower cholesterol, which reduces the risk of heart disease
Think of the process as starting your car in the winter. Would you drive you car in the dead of winter after not warming it up? If you do, you’re causing damage to your engine, which of course could lead to future problems. Same thing with your body – would you start an entire day without breakfast (your “warm up”)? Breakfast kick-starts your metabolism, which helps you – as one of the above bullet points mentioned – control weight.
Instead of trying to cram five extra minutes of sleep into mornings, get to bed five minutes early so you can wake up with plenty of time to get ready and have yourself a decent breakfast.
