How many times have you heard the adage, ‘Eat breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince and dinner like a beggar’? Well, don’t dismiss it. This age-old wisdom holds true even today, say nutritionists, dieticians and obesity consultants.
BREAK YOUR FAST The most important meal of the day, undoubtedly, is breakfast. The first food intake after a minimum gap of seven-eight hours, it acts as a fuel to jump-start the body. A person’s breakfast habit decides if his/her body goes into burning (high BMR) or storing (low BMR, high fat-storing) mode.
You break your night-long fast with this meal. It provides 25% of the total energy and nutrients required by the body. It will boost your energy levels and concentration.
MISSING IT IS DANGEROUS No breakfast means a sluggish start to the day. It also makes a person eat larger meals in the course of the day. Since activity level, for most people, is maximum in the day, whatever you eat for breakfast is burnt well. So, it can be the biggest meal of the day. In fact, it is the best time for a cheatmeal.
THE BEST BREAKFAST The first meal of the day should be a perfect combination of carbohydrates, protein and fibre. An ideal breakfast must include all the “five pillars of nutrition.
