Today’s weekly nutrition tip is to Eat Breakfast Daily.
Breakfast is important because it is a meal that literally “breaks the fast” after a night’s sleep. Because the body goes without food for ~7-8 hours, the body fully runs out of energy that it needs to operate functionally for the next day. Without giving your body this energy at breakfast, it cannot possibly perform at its best physically, mentally, or intellectually.
Eating breakfast also helps keep the body satiated throughout the morning, and which helps prevent the likelihood over-eating at the next meals.
