Just in case you need an excuse to join us for breakfast, here are 10 great reasons to start your day off the healthy way… at eggtc.!
1. Suppress Hunger
The American Heart Association showed that those who eat breakfast are more likely to have good blood sugar levels and less likely to feel hungry later on in the day.
2. Avoid Obesity
A study in the American Journal of Epidemiology showed that individuals who skip breakfast are nearly five times more likely to be obese than those who eat a morning meal. The study included 499 people whose diets were tracked over a year.
3. Stay Alert
Eating a high fiber and high carbohydrate breakfast could help you feel less tired throughout the day, according to a study in the International Journal of Food Sciences and Nutrition.
4. Reduce Risk of Disease
Dr. Mark Pereira of Harvard Medical School told BBC News, “It appears that breakfast may play an important role in reducing the risk of Type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease.”
Researchers found that those who ate a high-fiber, low-carb breakfast had more energy throughout the day compared with people who ate a high-fat breakfast.
6. Good Cholesterol
A study in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition showed that breakfast-skippers are more likely to have bad cholesterol levels and insulin sensitivity than breakfast-eaters.
Eating high-energy foods for breakfast could help to boost short-term memory, according to a study of 319 teens (between ages 13 and 20) in the Journal of Adolescent Health. Researchers also found that eating a high-calorie breakfast actually seemed to hinder concentration.
8. Children’s Benefits
Oatmeal has been shown to help improve children’s memory and attention skills when eaten for breakfast, compared with cold cereals.
9. Feel Full Longer with Eggs
Eating eggs for breakfast has been linked to increased satiety, or feeling full longer, and less food consumed later in the day.
10. Coffee Benefits
And of course, coffee has been linked to a whole host of health benefits, from a decreased risk of depression to a lower risk of some cancers and Type 2 diabetes.
And one bonus benefit for those who aren’t “morning people” – Do yourself, your classmates and your co-workers a favor by eating breakfast to help you deal with any morning moodiness and stress.
