Is Breakfast Really the Most Important Meal of the Day?, Oconto, Wisconsin

Everyone has heard the old adage that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Whether you want to trim down, bulk up, stay energized, or boost your performance, at least one person has probably told you to start by eating a hearty breakfast. Just how important is the first meal of the day, though, and what should it consist of for optimum health? 

What You Eat

breakfastEating good food shortly after waking up is an ideal way to start the day because it will provide the fuel your brain and body need to function at full capacity all day long. Everyone’s precise dietary needs are different, but there are a few general recommendations that apply to most people when it comes to building a balanced breakfast. For example, you should try to opt for minimally processed items encompassing every major food group (carbohydrates, protein, milk and dairy, produce, and fats). Therefore, consuming some combination of steel-cut oatmeal, eggs, berries, yogurt, cottage cheese, nut butter, wholegrain bread, and avocados can help you stay full and focused for hours. 

When You Eat

Although what you eat certainly has a major impact on health and wellness, researchers have found that the time you eat matters too. By eating a balanced breakfast in the morning, you will regulate hunger for the rest of the day, reducing the urge to snack on foods that have little nutritional value. This can help you both lose weight and keep it off. Recent studies indicate that eating a healthy breakfast may also reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease and diabetes by stimulating the metabolism at the start of the day and making your body more efficient at burning fat for energy.
