Here's a nice statistic according to a Harvard University study: people who eat breakfast are nearly 50 percent less likely to be obese than those who don't eat breakfast. In other words, you're risk of becoming obese increases when not eating breakfast!
Here are other reasons why eating breakfast is so important:
- Breakfast provides the vitamins and minerals the body needs for the day.
- Breakfast can help you lose body weight.
- Breakfast boosts your brainpower.
- Breakfast can reduce your risk of incurring diseases.
If you don't eat breakfast because you don't feel hungry in the morning, stop eating after 8pm. By eating less food later in the day, you will eventually feel more hungry in the mornings.
