Break-the-fast is an important concept behind the importance of eating breakfast. But whether eating breakfast really has any effect on your metabolic health remains controversial. Research to date has shown variable results, with some studies showing decreased weight in people who skip breakfast—but increased lipid levels—and others showing increased weight and body fat in breakfast skippers.
Breakfast and Your Blood Sugar
When it comes to blood glucose control, it makes sense that eating regularly and starting with a balanced breakfast will help stabilize blood glucose levels. Eating foods that are balanced in micronutrients and lower on the glycemic scale benefits you by:
-Providing energy for the morning
-Keep you full longer
-Helping to stabilize your blood sugar
Whether you eat something as soon as you get up in the morning or an hour or two later, eating a balanced breakfast will give you a jump start to your day and is a great way to get some important nutrients in.
