Breakfast is commonly known as the most important meal of the day. Here are some good reasons why.
Breakfast meals generally have a good source of Carbohydrates, Protein and many other good nutrients such as Iron, vitamin B, vitamin C and Calcium. to provide you with a good energy source for what the day brings.
A lot of people generally forget that they have just spent the last 6-8 hours sleeping, so you would want to put back in what your body has been deprived of during your sleep. Yes people can say that you are not burning any fuel as your body is resting, but I believe that regardless if you are not burning as much fuel in a resting state, 6-8 hours is still a long time.
In today's day and age we are spending more time at work and with social outings and events. Because of this we are demanding more from our body which would mean a good source of energy is very important. As breakfast is the first meal of the day it provides you with a good head start to take the day head on.
