Is Breakfast as Important as They Say?
We have been made believe those who eat breakfast are generally more healthy than those who don’t.
BUUUT these statements are based on observational studies and not real science. Basically, those previous studies decided breakfast was the significant factor and ignored the real significant factor of lifestyle.
Actual Science Has Shown…
Generally, people who eat breakfast eat things like fiber (oatmeal, yogurts, breads). And by now, you should know a high-fiber diet reduces the risk of heart disease, type 2 diabetes, and weight gain. Which is all the things researchers decided what makes breakfast eaters healthier. Also, breakfast eaters generally have more active and health-conscious habits like exercising and drinking water.
While those who don’t eat breakfast, typically don’t have the same lifestyle. They are typically smokers and heavy drinkers. And yeah, those lifestyles lead to heart disease and numerous other health effects. So, our research leads us to believe breakfast does NOT determine if a person is healthy or not.
In addition, we learned from our previous blog post, how fasting benefits the body. And we don’t mean not eating for a whole day, but more so simple intermittent fasting. But note, fasting isn’t for everyone. In fact, Registered dietitians encourage you to listen to your hunger cues more so than worrying about “the most important meal of the day”.
Let Fiber be Apart of Your First Meal
Whether you choose to break-your-fast, at 8am or 12pm, we want to focus on why you should include fiber with your first meal
Fiber is a complex carbohydrate that your body doesn’t easily digest. Which is good. This means high-fiber foods sit in your stomach longer than simple carbohydrates, like sugar. This is why you’ll more feel full after eating a bowl of oatmeal than a bowl of sugary cereal.
And, let’s not forget the beautiful bathroom experiences we have when eating a high-fiber diet. Ahh…such a relief!
