According to top nutritionists in Pakistan, breakfast is the most important meal of the day, and yet most of us focus more on lunch and dinner. Apparently, having a big breakfast as nearly as important as not skipping breakfast in the morning.

healthy Breakfast gives you the energy you need to function all day and also kick-starts your metabolism. In case you think that a big breakfast would translate into weight gain, it is not true. The trick is to make sure that your overall calorie intake doesn’t go beyond your maintenance level. Here are a few reasons to eat a bigger breakfast:

1-A Healthy Diet:

It is said that people who eat breakfast also have good health habits overall. This makes sense because when you eat a healthy breakfast, you pretty much set the tone for the rest of the day. It is very important that you have a nutritional breakfast as just having a big breakfast won’t cut it. Some good ideas include milk and cereal, fruits, and eggs. All of these food items are brimming with help and will provide you with the vitamins and minerals you need to remain active throughout the day.

2-Metabolism Boost:

When we are awake, we normally eat every few hours, but when we are asleep, we go without food for around 8 hours. Your body’s metabolism slows down during this time and it revs up again when you get awake. This is a great time to eat a healthy meal as your body will process it naturally and hopefully, all that food will not get stored as fat. Making a habit of having a big breakfast every day will regulate your metabolism and keep your body mass index, or BMI healthy.

3-A Steady Weight:

Once your BMI is steady, your weight will also stop fluctuating. Contrary to popular belief, a big breakfast can help you lose weight because you will not be starving when it is time for lunch. This will prevent you from overeating and indulging in desserts afterward. On the other hand, skipping breakfast or having a light breakfast might prompt you to snack on junk foods throughout the day.

4-Improved Concentration:

A healthy breakfast will also enable you to remain focused and alert the whole day. This is very essential for school going kids as well as office going adults. You need to have a good breakfast in the morning to stabilize blood sugar; else you will feel sleepy and lethargic the whole day. The fatty acids, vitamins, and minerals present in a healthy breakfast food also improve brain functioning.
