Breakfast: Its Importance and Significance

We all know that Napoleon ate a full French breakfast that had rich food items in it. No wonder he was such a successful conqueror who built a vast empire from his rapid series of conquests. But had he skipped breakfast everyday of his life he may have met his Waterloo much sooner. 

Breakfast is a word which when deconstructed on a simple level yields two words in its subtext: “break” and “fast”. In other words, it essentially means to “break the fast”. All night long, you have gone without any food and now you are literally eating to replenish your low blood sugar levels and jumpstart your metabolism. 

There is proof that those who eat an early morning breakfast lose weight. Since they have already eaten upon getting up, they don’t tend to chow down too many calories at lunch and dinner. 

There is scant evidence of any benefits of skipping breakfast. Maybe if you consider intermittent fasting as a method of losing weight in the obese it may serve as a handy tip. 

But overall those who rise and shine and eat a hearty breakfast gain in overall good health and share a host of salubrious effects from a physiological and psychological point of view. 

Their hand-eye coordination is improved manifold. Then the good cholesterol levels rise too. As for the alertness levels they too get considerably increased. They don’t ride the blood sugar roller coaster like those who skip the Big “B”. 

There’s a saying: “Eat breakfastlike a king, lunch like a prince and dinner like a pauper.” It sure makes sense. Eating too much at night is bad since the food does not get digested well at that particular time. 

But your body is ravenous and like a nutrient sponge it is ready to absorb every last drop of energy and goodness at breakfast time. The 12 hour long fast you underwent while you were asleep ensures that the body is primed for nutritional activity. 

So remember, it is a better idea to eat a breakfast with a variety of foods than to skip it altogether. Finally, the best foods suitable for breakfast include: oatmeal, yogurt, turkey, good fats such as those found in olive oil, nuts and oily fish (salmon) as well as complex carbohydrates.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
