Why Breakfast Is Important

MYTHBUSTER MONDAY
Carbohydrate based breakfast
In the morning, simple carbohydrates (sugary refined cereals, white bread, toast etc) cause an immediate surge in blood sugar, resulting in a substantial release of insulin. The sugar from our blood, turning any excess into fat. This decreased level of blood sugar results in further cravings for carbohydrates. This vicious cycle constitutes one of the major reasons for diabetes, high blood pressure and extra weight.

Breakfast Skipping
When we avoid having breakfast, our blood sugar drops below the normal levels, leading to cravings and a drop of energy. Cravings usually mean we revert to snacking on simple carbs, resulting in the same issues with a carb based breakfast.

A Balanced Healthy Breakfast
A balanced breakfast supplies our body with vital nutrients and energy without increasing blood sugar and insulin levels, and helps to avoid dependence on carbs during the day. In this way, appetite stays under control, cravings for carbs diminish and our body uses its fat stores for energy.
