At Wildway, we believe that how you start your morning can have a huge impact on the rest of your day, and there’s a lot of evidence out there that suggests that a healthy breakfast should be part of that equation. Don’t just take our word for it though, there’s a lot of evidence out there that backs us up and proves that fueling your day with the right foods in the morning can make all of the difference. Here are 5 reasons why breakfast is a good thing:
1. It will help you control your weight better and lower your BMI
Studies have shown that people who fill up with a nutrient dense, low-sugar breakfast in the morning have a lower body mass index (BMI) and can better control their weight. Of course this only applies to healthy, nutrient-dense, low-sugar breakfast, no one filled up with empty carbs and sugars as you run out the door.
2. Eating breakfast will help you fight fatigue and improve memory retention
Just think that 2pm sluggish feeling is an inevitable and normal part of the day? Think again. This study showed that breakfast eaters experience less fatigue and have better focus and memory retention throughout the day than those who don’t.
3. Eating breakfast has a positive effects on your hormones
Especially the hormones that are responsible for regulating food intake. That’s right, this study showed that not eating breakfast can literally block your bodies signals that you are full or need to stop eating which can lead to overeating throughout the day.
4. Eating breakfast can speed up your metabolism
This study proved that eating a nutrient-rich and calorie-dense breakfast can increase “diet induced thermogenesis” (read, metabolism) from 5-15%. That’s an incredible increase in energy expenditure that, over time, will have a huge impact on your ability to lose weight and keep it off.
5. Eating breakfast will help you keep your blood sugar under control
You don’t have to be a diabetic to want to keep your blood sugar under control. Studies show that regulating your blood sugar can help lower blood pressure and cholesterol levels as well as reduce the risk of heart related health problems. Not eating breakfast has been shown to lead to spikes in blood sugar throughout the day, which can, in turn, put your heart at risk as well.
