Benefits of Breakfast

You may have heard or read before that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. I know it is true for me; when I skip breakfast, I hardly have enough energy all day long and my brain just can not seem to get going.

I am used to eating a bowl of cereal or rather I eat a bowl of sugar with some cereal added to it, haha. Anything fatty on my empty stomach makes me sick, so this sugary meal works for me. I suppose it does not matter what you eat, as long as you consume something prodding your metabolism to go to work.

There are more advantages to having breakfast. If you skip it, you may encounter the following negative effects:

• First, there's the energy factor. Your brain needs glucose from food – especially good carbs – in order to work well. No breakfast means a brain-energy slump by mid-morning.

• Skipping the benefits of breakfast can lead to an increase in LDL ("bad" cholesterol) levels, according to a study by researchers at the University of Nottingham in England.

• Going without breakfast means you likely will eat more throughout the day. People who eat breakfast, on the other hand, get their metabolism humming and tend not to consume as many calories during the entire day, so they wind up weighing less than those who don't get the benefits of eating breakfast.

• Finally, you may be jeopardizing your long-term health. The same University of Nottingham study found that those who skipped breakfast were more resistant to insulin. Insulin resistance increases the risk of developing diabetes.

It is obvious and clear that our body needs fuel to function well. The longer we go without food, the weaker we get. Having breakfast is a good way to start the day and to stay strong and healthy.

Our daily bread consists of more then just food for our body; we need to fuel our spirits as well to stay strong and healthy. Reading God's Word is a good way to start the day and we can devour as much of it as we like.

It has all the good carbs, good cholesterol, every vitamin, supplement and nutrition and helps us getting rid of the 'extra ballast' we don't need, but tend to carry around. :-)

John 6:27
Do not labor for the food which perishes, but for the food which endures to everlasting life, which the Son of Man will give you, because God the Father has set His seal on Him."
