It is a common knowledge that breakfast is the most important meal of the day but a lot of people are skipping breakfast especially when they are in a hurry or on a diet. I am guilty of this habit before but not now as I read in Patty Laurel's blog that breakfast eaters tend to weigh less than the breakfast skipper. How or Why? "One theory suggests that eating a healthy breakfast can reduce hunger throughout the day, and help people make better food choices at other meals. While it might seem you could save calories by skipping breakfast, this is not an effective strategy. Typically, hunger gets the best of breakfast-skippers, and they eat more at lunch and throughout the day." - WebMD
So there, that's a piece of info that is stuck in my mind. Now I know why I always end up hungry when I'm only having a cereal drink in the mornings. Most likely, this is the reason why we have a National Breakfast Day is to promote to every Filipinos the importance of having breakfast meal.
Make it a habit to have a heavy breakfast. I tried having one the other day and I still feel full during lunch time thus I only ate a bagel and some pineapple courtesy of my office mate. Wink! Hopefully I can continue this healthy eating throughout the whole year.
