Have you tried a day with breakfast and a day without one?
In this fast pace of life, am sure each one of us has been skipping breakfast a lot of times. Also, you might have observed the difference in your energy level. This pace of life is not only for working people. Even students face a struggle to attend lectures early morning(I understand it’s tiring anyway :P).
Do you remember the time when your mother/grandmother used to run after you with a plate full of something asking you to eat your breakfast? It was not only out of love but also because they understood how essential is the first meal you take.
So, when you skip your first meal, you might start feeling hungry way before actual lunch time. And what do you eat then? Anything handy and easy which you may just gulp it quickly or just starve yourself through it.Don’t torture your poor body as it was already on a fast for a good 8-10 hours(while you were asleep).
People keep breakfast as the last thing to do before leaving the house(it’s good if you’re an exception) whereas, it should be a high priority thing to do. Also, it’s high time to realize and notice the importance of having a healthy breakfast.
It has been observed that people who don’t eat breakfast tend to munch more throughout the day hence, the calorie intake is more than required. So, skipping breakfast surely isn’t going to help you in your fitness goal(sad news for all folks!).

How Much & What Should We Eat?
How much do you eat depends on your own appetite but what you eat makes a huge difference altogether. You can’t have two Pizza’s over breakfast(Joey would do that :P) so it’s also necessary to eat the right kind of food in the morning. You must have read everywhere that breakfast is refueling yourself(It is actually true). Even eating a bowl full of something with milk is a good option but that alone does not give you a complete portion of nutrients required.
You can start your day with a glass full of water as it removes all the toxins from your body. Followed by breakfast with a good amount of protein, carbs, fruits, fiber, and calcium. Even having eggs and milk is a good option but oops what if you are vegetarian? I know now you would be scratching your head, thinking a pizza would be a better option(:P) and how can u get all that in the morning with little time in your hand. Well, I understand time constraint is a problem. But I hope you have understood how important the first meal of the day is for all of us.
Nutritionist Adelle Davis famously puts it back in the 1960s: “Eat breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince and dinner like a pauper.”
