Breakfast, is it really that IMPORTANT?

YES!

With the average American being overweight or worse, there is a drastic need for a change in the “average American lifestyle.”

As an “average American” you are now more inclined to develop diabetes, heart disease, cancer, strokes, arthritis, gout, sleep problems, depression, and a host of other conditions. This is because the “average American” is overweight. Now most of us know that eating right and exercise is vitally important to staying healthy but a lot of Americans do not understand what that means. So here is one simple tip EAT BREAKFAST.

Yes that old saying that breakfast is the most important meal is actually true. This is because of our body’s natural metabolism and it’s protection mechanisms. You see without breakfast shortly after waking your body puts itself into a protection mode called STARVATION. This starvation mode is natures way of saying “hey we don’t have enough energy coming into the body so we must slow down and store as much as possible.” This means that the next time you consume food your body has already decided to store it for emergency purposes. This means that even if you don’t eat a lot of food you still continue to put on weight. This is a self defeating cycle.

So here is where breakfast comes in. If you eat breakfast shortly after waking you do not allow your body time to enter into the starvation mode. In fact you actually increase your metabolism for the entire day just by eating a breakfast that has healthy protein, fats, and carbohydrates. This can be as simple as 1 or 2 hard boiled eggs and some fruit.

This easy to follow tip can help you burn more energy (calories) every day, stay out of starvation mode (aka fat storage mode), and actually lose weight.
