Eat Your Breakfast!

Do you eat breakfast in the morning? If so, is your meal effort something more substantial than coffee and a muffin? If you answered yes to the first question and yes to the second question, give yourself a gold star.

If you skip breakfast meals or don't eat much more than caffeine and carbs, here are some good reasons to change your ways:
  • Eating breakfast is extremely important because it helps stabilize blood sugar levels after hours of fasting while asleep.
  • Your body needs a good jump start in nutrition to rise and shine, and if you are in the habit of skipping meals, your body has nothing with which to fuel itself.
  • Various health problems will result such as heart disease, obesity, metabolic disorders, blood sugar fluctuations (which cause a myriad of unpleasant symptoms), low energy, and general malaise.
  • Eating something nutritionally empty such as a muffin, croissant, bagel, or toaster pop just adds simple carbohydrates and calories to your body. The caffeine will wake you up temporarily, but what will come next is jitters and inability to concentrate. A good breakfast will never do that to you. Now, how do you like them jitters with your staff meeting? How about that loan signing?
