We've heard it time and time again, breakfast is the most important meal of the day, but there are many reasons why this statement holds true. The typical person spends eight hours asleep each night with no food or water. By the time you wake up, your body is dehydrated and you have little energy to start your day off with. According to BetterBreakfast.org, breakfast can also help you actually lose weight. Without breakfast to get the metabolism going again, the body stays at the lower level of metabolism, burning fewer calories than if it had breakfast. If you skip your morning meal, you to tend to eat more throughout the day and the foods are usually unhealthy and high in calories. An individual who fuels up for their day with breakfast can wait until lunch to eat with energy to spare.
