Everyone knows that successful weight loss is a combination of regular exercise, healthy eating and a positive mind. There’s no point of do some exercise five days a week if you’re going to give in to temptation and take fast food and a packet of Tam Tam when you get home. Healthy eating doesn’t necessarily mean dieting, it refers instead to eating sensible, balanced amounts of the right foods at the right times and that includes a good breakfast. There’s a reason why people have said that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. After six, seven or eight hours of sleep, your body and brain need some fuel to power and prepare them for the day ahead. Like a car, you can’t run on an empty tank, you need some petrol. It’s a well-known fact that people who eat breakfast lose more weight than people who don’t and this is due to several reasons. Number one, breakfast produces the energy to your body requires in order to perform activities. Therefore, you’re so not tired and can do more. Number two, it kick starts the body into producing enzymes needed to metabolize fat, helping to shed the pounds. Number 3, eating a good breakfast keeps you full for longer and may make you less likely to reach for snacks. In addition, breakfast is generally good for you. Though, on the negative side, eating high-fat breakfasts too often has recently been demonstrated to increase the risk of atherosclerosis (McFarlin et al., 2016).
