Benefits of a Big Breakfast

 

 

 

 

Eating a big healthy breakfast is important. If your first meal of the day is stacked with sugar and refined carbohydrates, you’re ingesting a ton of useless calories that’ll mess up your insulin and energy levels later in the day (and give you major health problems down the road). A healthy breakfast that has a good amount of protein, fiber, and healthy carbohydrates and fats helps keep your metabolism raised throughout the day. That’s because after 8 hours of sleeping, your metabolism will have slowed considerably, only to kick back into gear when you wake up in the morning. Eating a big healthy breakfast that your body can process naturally helps to initiate thermogenesis, the metabolic process of digesting food and using it for energy rather than fat storage. According to the Dartmouth-Hitchcock Norris Cotton Cancer Center, eating breakfast can increase your resting metabolism by up to 10 percent.

We already know that bigger breakfasts help to keep your metabolism working well, but another benefit one can experience is increased satiety throughout the day (i.e. you feel fuller, so you’re less likely to snack).

Lastly, starting your day off with a big healthy meal not only energizes your body—it helps to improve your brain power by providing you with essential fats, vitamins and minerals that will help stabilize your blood sugar levels and stave off drowsiness and lethargy. As a result, your mood will be substantially improved as well.
