I love breakfast. There’s something special about that first real meal of the day that helps to wake up my body and brain. I love starting my day with a happy and filled tummy. Plus, there’s no denying that I love breakfast foods. Did someone say pancakes or French toast? Yum.
Although research doesn’t clearly demonstrate that eating breakfast has a positive effect on weight maintenance or loss, there are still valid reasons why nutrition experts continue to highlight breakfast as the most important meal of the day.
Eating is all about personal preference but the timing of your meals may reflect your daily habits. Individuals who tend to skip breakfast are those who typically overeat in the evening or graze throughout the afternoon/evening. Additionally, if you didn’t grow up eating breakfast, there’s a good chance that as an adult you will not consider breakfast as an important or necessary meal.
