After the ‘overnight fasting period’, your body gets replenished with a supply of glucose and other essential nutrients by the intake of breakfast. It helps to keep your energy levels higher throughout. Without breakfast, you are definitely running on empty, just like the cars. You will not be able to do things properly if you are not “reloaded”.
The nutritionists advise that the breakfast should be eaten within two hours of waking up. If you are thinking of a healthy meal, then it should give 20-35 percent calorie of your Guideline Daily Allowance(GDA). Many investigations have associated eating breakfast to great health, which also includes better concentration and memory. It also helps in lowering the levels of “bad” LDL cholesterol and lower risks of getting heart disease, diabetes, and being overweight.
