In today’s fast-paced world, skipping breakfast which is considered “the most important meal of the day” is becoming a bad habit. People are so caught up in the demands of their everyday lives that they sometimes fail to acknowledge the health benefits of eating breakfast.
What health risks do you potentially put yourself into by doing so? Let’s find out!
According to a study published in JAMA, eating a healthy breakfast can reduce the risk of people having heart attacks. However, those who skip breakfast have about 27% more chance of having a heart attack compared to their peers who eat breakfast on a daily basis.
To avoid developing stroke, you should avoid skipping the first meal of the day. According to experts, people who skip breakfast are twice as likely to suffer from a stroke because skipping it increases their susceptibility to hypertension which in turn, leads to clogged arteries.
If you are trying to lose weight and think that missing breakfast can help you with your weight loss efforts then think again! Studies conducted on the negative impact of skipping breakfast states that those who missed their morning meal had a higher tendency to gain weight as they are more likely to devour and have bigger portions of sugary and fatty food throughout the day.
46,289 women over the course of six years participated in a research conducted by Harvard University School of Public Health. At the end of this study, researchers claimed that those who skipped breakfast often had a 20 percent chance of being diagnosed with type 2 diabetes. Unfortunately, the risk is even higher for women working full-time jobs as they have an alarming 54 percent more chance of developing it.
According to a British research team in a study that appeared in a Physiological Behavior journal about 19 years ago, missing breakfast is linked to have negative impacts on people’s energy and mood.
They conducted a study in which 144 healthy people were divided into three groups and underwent an overnight fasting. The first group were given a healthy breakfast, while the second and third groups were given coffee and no breakfast respectively. All the groups were monitored for a few hours after that. Experts found that the group who were not given any breakfast had the highest fatigue levels and had poorer memory skills in comparison with the other two groups.
Taking breakfast for granted can actually do you more harm than good. It is not called “the most important meal of the day” for no reason that’s why it’s always best to eat breakfast before you kickstart your day.
