Healthy eating doesn’t necessarily mean dieting, it refers instead to eating sensible, balanced amounts of the right foods at the right times – and that includes a good breakfast.

Here are top reasons why you should have breakfast daily to aid weight loss.

  • Break the fast: Truly breakfast means ‘Breaking the fast’. Breakfast can make or break a diet, because breakfast helps set the tone for the rest of the day. Your body responds to not eating for long hours by slowing down it’s metabolic rate. By eating breakfast, you wake up your metabolism and get your engine humming, burning those calories you need to burn to lose weight.
  • Eat more, Weigh less. Research has shown that people who have breakfast, have a better chance of losing weight.

  • Be alert -have breakfast. Breakfast helps you wake up. Studies indicate that people who eat breakfast are more alert and do better on tests than people who skip breakfast. Conversely, a hungry child can be apathetic, disinterested, and irritable when confronted with difficult tasks. Breakfast is the key.”
  • Eat Breakfast like a king. Include fruits, foods that add fibre content , calcium for  your bones. People do prefer toasted bread and egg or fruit juice to satisfy their appetite. Eating a good breakfast keeps you full for longer and may make you less likely to reach for snacks.
  • Have Breakfast and be in good moods. Studies indicate that people who have breakfast tend to be in good moods. You start in the right way by having breakfast. By having breakfast in the right time you can plan for having lunch on time and plan on the meal too.

In India general preference is Idli, dosa, upma,chapathi,paratha,appam and the weight conscious people have switched over to Oats, cereals and corn flakes. The key to successful weight loss is a combination of regular exercise, healthy eating and a positive mind. There’s no point working out five days a week if you’re going to give in to temptation and consume pizzas and oily food when you get home.

This is the main reason why people have said for many years that “breakfast is the most important meal of the day”. After six, seven or eight hours – if you’re lucky – of sleep, your body and brain need some fuel to power and prepare them for the day ahead. Like a car, you can’t run on an empty tank, you need some petrol.

The rule is simple: Eat when you are hungry and stop when you are satisfied.
