Breakfast is the most important meal of the day.
Do you skip breaky because you are just not hungry, but you force yourself to eat because you heard you are supposed too as its healthy?
The truth is – there are health benefits if you eat breakfast and also if you skip breakfast. It depends on your goals but for the purpose of this of this post let’s take the question above.
You eat breakfast because it’s the most important meal of the day. Whose mum said this to them most days. Mine certainly did.
Research suggests that breakfast eaters are most likely health seekers. (this is not equivocal, and I am not saying if you don’t eat breakfast, you are not healthy). Breakfast tends to be a healthier meal of the day for most; intentions for the day are good so we make good choices, therefore, you are getting extra micronutrients in there and a good macro split generally to fuel your morning. Think fruit and great yogurt, eggs on wholegrain toast as examples.
Me personally, I’m a big breakfast fan! However, I am up at 5am most days and don’t eat until 9am. That’s only because I am manic in the mornings. If I ate it at 5am I would likely want to eat again at 9am again so I just don’t. I’m just not hungry at 5am.
If you are not hungry in the morning and you feel good off it then just don’t eat it. It will make very little difference to your day.
If you are skipping breaky for weight loss reasons (AKA intermittent fasting, basically skipping a meal and therefore most likely creating an calories deficit) but then find you overeat a lunch because you are so ravenous then maybe think about bringing back breakfast and that is not the diet for you.
There is a lot of nuance here so feel free to message me if you have a specific goal.
Take away – if you want to eat it then do, if you don’t then don’t, it probably doesn’t matter!
My breakfast most days is kiwi, frozen berries, Greek yoghurt, nuts and chocolate. Weekends I’ll have bagels and eggs.
Do you eat breakfast? Any breakfast inspo recipes??
