Fuel for the day!

granola-787997_1280

Eating breakfast gives you your fuel for the day! When you wake up, your energy levels are low as you would have been fasting for more than 8 hours already (Give or take, depending on the midnight snack! Don’t deny it, we all do it!).

If you skip breakfast, it will be another couple of hours before you eat and by that time your body will be scraping away at those energy levels!

Breakfast means literally breaking the fast, it’s the first meal of the day. So when we wake up, it is essential to eat breakfast to replenish those levels and to help your body function throughout the day.

But wait. The food you choose to eat for breakfast can determine the energy levels in your body. The International Journal of Food Sciences and Nutrition study has shown that every participant which has eaten breakfast has had an immediate alertness in the morning. (That means it’s better to eat any breakfast, than to eat none at all!)

However those who ate a high fiber and carbohydrate rich meal instead of a fact rich breakfast were more likely to have more energy and alertness.

The conclusion?

Eat breakfast, first and foremost, for energy throughout the day.
Also eat a high fiber and carbohydrate breakfast for increased energy levels.

Remember if you want to “Think like a beast, have your morning feast!”
