You really can start to form a new eating habit, that
begins improving your overall health today. Regularly
eating in the morning, or whatever time of the day you wake
up, is one of the most important daily eating habits you
will ever learn.
Here is a question for you. How often do you eat
breakfast? Do you usually eat breakfast each morning on a
regular basis? If not, then occasionally, or hardly
Did you know that eating breakfast soon after you awake
from a long period of slumber benefits your body in many
different ways? Some of these benefits are well known,
while others are yet waiting to be discovered.
Refueling your body after along period of sleep, can be
compared to refilling your automobile fuel tank with
gasoline after a long trip. When the fuel tank is empty,
you simply must refuel your machine, or there will be no
beneficial action taking place.
Your body really does need a fresh new supply of
glucose, or blood sugar, to support your muscles, brain,
and internal organs. Blood also carries the necessary
nutrients to help you power up, and support, all of your
normal daily movement activities.
Research has always shown us that eating breakfast is,
indeed, just as important as your mom told you it was.
Breakfast is called the most 'important meal' of the day
for several good reasons, a few of which you will be sure
to notice are:
1.An increased concentration and memorization capacity
towards learning at work or school.
2.Increased energy and productivity in late morning.
3.Increased muscle coordination.
Research has also, positively, indicated that regularly
eating breakfast may play a very critical role in the
prevention of developing type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular
Those who have a lower metabolism, which is also known
as 'insulin resistance syndrome', usually have one or more
of these common characteristic factors, obesity, high
abdominal body fat, high blood pressure, high fasting
levels of blood sugar or the hormone insulin (which helps
your body store glucose).
Having insulin resistance syndrome, in simple terms,
means your body is not allowing you to use glucose
efficiently. Oftentimes, you will also have problems with
high blood fat readings. You will test with higher levels
of triglycerides and low levels of HDL, or "good
A good way to turn this situation around, is to read more
about the benefits of switching to unprocessed coconut oil,
and cooking more of your meals at home.
Having no time seems to be the biggest reason why more
people do not eat breakfast. Thinking ahead, like the night
before, may help some of you. For those who over sleep and
are rushing, take some healthy snacks along to munch on.
For those who really are not hungry after rising, and for
an hour or two afterwards, start out eating light and more
Try not to rely on processed foods, here, and instead
focus on protein and fat foods for stick-to-your-ribs-
power, and some fresh fruit or veggies for energy. And, if
your not to crazy about traditional breakfast foods, then,
just don't eat them.
The next question you are probably going to ask is,
"then what in the heck do I eat"? I'm sure you would really
like to maximize your health benefits, by getting into the
routine of eating breakfast, wouldn't you? Just remember,
breakfast foods can be left over meal items you may have
stored in the fridge.
Eggs, especially, if purchased from a local producer,
are excellent sources of protein, healthy omega-3 fat, and
lutein and zeaxanthin which are powerful nutritional
elements for blindness prevention. Eggs are inexpensive,
and can be eaten in a variety of different ways.
Don't care for the taste of eggs, then try including
some of these complete protein foods like cheese, beans,
unprocessed raw milk, lean meats like turkey, chicken, or
fish. You can add a serving of whole grain bread, raw
vegetable juice, and some fresh fruit to add a more
stabilized energy boost.
Realize, too, that not everyone has the same nutritional
requirements. Some of you naturally need more protein in
your diet, some need more complex carbohydrates, and yet
others need a balance of both to function ideally. You can
learn more about nutritional typing at mercola.com.
In conclusion, consider that past and current research
indicates, that breakfast eaters also tend to eat less
throughout the day. And, as most of the population of most
modernized cultures, who have adopted western diets, has
some very serious weight problems to conquer.
Does it not make sense, then, to be actively trying to
do something proactive to help solve your weight problems,
by simply eating a healthy meal to jump-start the beginning
of your day? This will give your body the chance to reward
you nicely, by giving it the necessary nutrients it needs
to perform for you better!
Wash it all down with a big glass of raw milk, fresh
juiced fruits and vegetables, or water, and your set.
Remember to keep a bottle of water handy through out the
remaining hours of your day to help fight dehydration. Let
the successful weight loss program begin!
