Breakfast is the most important meal of the day and skipping it would not only make you gain weight but may also lead to lifestyle-related diseases like obesity, type 2 diabetes, hypertension and cardiovascular diseases. Researchers from Tel Aviv University & Hebrew University in Israel found that eating breakfast helps in regulating the post-meal glucose and insulin responses. So, if you have breakfast before 9 30 am, it will improve the metabolism rate of your body, leading to weight loss Dr. Anil Mehta, general physician on Lybrate, Delhi says, “skipping breakfast can not only make your metabolism dip, but also leave you lethargic... A good breakfast made up of carbohydrates and lean protein can help reduce cravings and overeating for the rest of the day.” And here is how you gain weight if you skip the morning meal. Dr. Anil Mehta also added “as the day wears on, serotonin levels dip, and you get cravings for chocolate, cookies, and other similar foods. Eating these causes an increase in serotonin levels and the body begins to associate good feelings with them, creating an addictive cycle.” Then you may ask- What if I wake up after 10 am? Nutritionist from Portea Medical in Bangalore, Priyanka Verma says “our body is primed to look for food when we wake up in the morning. So ideally we should have a healthy breakfast within two hours of waking up.” Having your breakfast would also make the brain alert and improve concentration levels, immunity, and cognitive functions. Verma says “It also helps avoid gas and acidity, boosts heart health and your mood, and keeps you calm.” Cortisol and adrenaline levels are at their peak in the morning and hence the brain requires energy. “This leads to activation of an emergency system, pulling energy from muscles and destroying muscle tissue in the process. When one eats later in the day, the body saves energy from the food as fat because the body and brain are still in high-alert mode,” says Priyanka Verma. So if you want to lose weight, have a hearty meal in the morning
