We are showing a lot of interest in keeping our mobile phones fully charged and wearing quality clothes / cosmetics items but that much interest is not shown in eating healthy foods and in keeping our body fit. People tend to skip their breakfast for some petty reasons. Some do as they don’t have time and some for weight loss.
By eating breakfast regularly, we can avoid heart attacks and strokes at first place. Platelets, the body’s blood clotting cells, become “stickier” in the morning before breakfast. This increases the tendency for a blood clot to form during the morning hours. If such a clot occurs in a heart blood vessel, a heart attack can result. As expected from this physiology, most heart attacks occur between 7 AM and 12 noon. Eating breakfast can help the platelets to become less sticky and thus decrease the risk of morning heart attacks.
After getting up from sleep, our body would be totally depleted of energy and nutrients and our brain and body need fuel to function for the whole day. Breakfast is their first chance to recharge themselves fully. Nutrients are necessary to enhance the problem-solving and memory retention skills. Eating a healthy and proper breakfast helps improve your thinking ability and will keep your mind in top mental condition.
When should we eat breakfast?
We should eat within 2 hours after getting up from sleep. We should not be keeping the body and brain without food for long hours in the morning. It is like trying to run a vehicle without fuel.
