This week has been National Breakfast week and MOMA have made an infographic showing some facts bout eating breakfast. With 1 in 10 people completely skipping breakfast it is slightly worrying has eating within 2 hours of waking up kick starts our metabolism to start working and burning off calories.
I have to admit, I am sometimes guilty of this. I am often in a rush and just have a cup of tea and nothing else to eat until about 11am. But that often means and early lunch, so by tea time I am starving and often find myself feeling tired around 3pm and often start looking for snacks. But if I eat a big breakfast, usually porridge with honey and banana, I have my lunch between 12-1pm and then my tea at 4.30pm and nothing else to eat until the next morning, except a cup of tea or hot chocolate. But I don’t feel hungry at all, and this is actually helping me to lose weight.
And has they say, you should breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince and dine like a pauper.
Here are the health benefits of eating breakfast:
