Now this one isn't going to be for everyone. Obviously, if you are doing intermittent fasting, you can skip this step, but if you eat regular meals throughout the day, this one is absolutely for you!
For a filling and nutrition-packed breakfast, top whole grain cereals with fresh fruit slices and low-fat or fat-free milk.
Porridge is another fabulous option.
It is said that breakfast eaters tend to weigh less and have better diets overall.
It has also been suggested that skipping breakfast is linked to other harmful habits which can leads to hypertension, obesity, high blood pressure and high cholesterol which in turn increase the risk of heart attacks, strokes by 27%.
That said, it has also be shown that intermittent fasting is perfectly healthy and sustainable and even beneficial for a large proportion of the population, so make of this information what you will.
Yes, some of my posts may be slightly controversial or may seem contradictory to previous posts when I share opinions of others or alternative points of view held by various health professionals.
Personally, on the subject of breakfast, I would say make a choice and stick to it. Either eat it everyday, or don't. At least your body will grow accustomed to your eating habits, rather than having it sometimes, not having it other times, leaving your body not knowing when it is to expect food next.
Unless you are committed to intermittent fasting, eat breakfast!
What are your views on the whole breakfast debate?
