Why is eating the “RIGHT” breakfast so important?

Eating the right breakfast is just as important to your health as eating breakfast.

What our body needs?

All you ate yesterday consists of two major groups of elements. The first group supplies energy (proteins, fats, carbohydrates). The second group supplies building material (proteins, amino acids, vitamins, minerals, microelements and many others)

You spent energy yesterday when you were awake and active, and while you were asleep last night your body used up all the building material to regenerate itself.  Now our body wakes up in the morning and on behalf of 100 trillion cells begs you, “Hey give me all the tens of nutrients and energy which I spent in the last 24 hours”

Now here is the big question, what do you give your body in the morning. Remember all our bodies wake up in the morning “empty” with a normal sugar level. What we decide to eat for breakfast will determine what happens to your blood sugar.

What happens in the body

If you eat a breakfast which is full of carbs you are giving your body sugar. By raising the blood sugar level your pancreas is “awakened” to produce more than normal insulin. This happens because the insulin removes the sugar from the blood and then turns it into fat. What now happens is that the insulin may remove to much blood sugar to rectify the process and your blood sugar level drops to below the level you woke up with this morning. You now experience hunger and weakness.

To overcome hunger you again now need simple carbs (chocolates, sweets, pies, sausage rolls, sandwiches, cookies, doughnuts, fizz drinks, juices etc) which again raises your blood sugar level. Each sugar “injection” is followed by an insulin surge. This cycle repeats itself several times a day and you develop a dependency on carbohydrates.

Wow and the food companies just love this dependency don’t they. In fact they promote it because if they can get you starting with a breakfast loaded with carbohydrates, then they have got you eating carbohydrates for the rest of the day.
