Remember that saying you’ve been hearing all your life? “Breakfast is the most important meal of the day”, well turns out it’s an old saying for a reason, because it’s TRUE! (Fancy that, right?) Well it’s time to put those words into practice and make breakfast a priority again. Not convinced? Well check out the following reasons why we always start our day off right and know you should too.

People Who Eat Breakfast Weigh Less

Running late again and left the house without grabbing something to eat? Well say goodbye to those weight loss goals! Breakfast helps to regulate your blood sugar, and when it drops bad things happen. When your stomach finally makes it’s presence known you’re going to be diving into whatever sugar or fatty carbs within reach. Breakfast also makes sure your metabolism is started up first thing so it burns high for you all day, ensuring maximum weight loss, not gain.

Stable Mood and Energy

Ever heard of being “hangry”? That irritability that happens when blood sugars drop and you just don’t have the energy to put up with anything and everyone around you finds you grumpy. No amount of coffee is going to get you through that! Eating breakfast has shown to improve cognitive function so you no longer are living half of your day in a fog. Not allowing your blood sugars to drop ensures you’ll start your day energized and avoiding an early morning slump.

It’s worth taking some extra time in the morning to have a balanced breakfast or once a week to prep overnight oats if you refuse to get up any earlier than you already are. Throw some peanut butter on an english muffin, grab an apple, and head out the door. Your health and your waistline will thank you!
