Throughout your life you might have heard multiple times about skipping breakfast can have negative effects on your health and that means that you might have actually become extremely annoyed by it. But that still doesn’t mean that you can deny the truth. Numerous studies on skipping breakfast have been conducted and almost all of them support the notion. Here are some of the benefits of eating breakfast and reasons as to why you should never skip breakfast.
Increases Your Memory
Studies have shown that people who regularly eat their breakfast are able to perform better and be more productive when it comes to their jobs. They are energetic and active. Moreover breakfast is known to have positive effects on our cognitive function that is related to our memory.
Helps in Weight Loss
If you think skipping breakfast will result in weight loss then be prepared to be surprised. Because research has shown the opposite; breakfast actually helps you lose weight and keeps you healthy.
A study was conducted whose result showed that people who made their breakfasts the largest meals of their day were able to lose almost 17.8 pounds in 3 months. Compared to them, participants who consumed the same amount of calories in a day but their largest meal was dinner, were only able to lose 7.3 pounds.
Saves from Heart Diseases
According to some studies, you are more vulnerable to heart diseases if you skip breakfast. This is because not starting your day with a healthy meal increases the sugar levels in your blood, increases your resistance to insulin, and causes hypertension. All these are shown by patients of heart diseases.
On the other hand, men within the age bracket of 45 to 82 who ate a healthy breakfast in their normal routine showed less cases of heart diseases.

Just like cases of heart diseases were observed between men who ate breakfast as compared to men who did not, women were observed too but in regard to incidents of diabetes.
Results showed that females who ate their breakfast hardly once or twice a week had more chances of suffering from type 2 diabetes as compared to women who made eating breakfast as part of their routine.
Men or women, old and children, no matter what gender you are and no matter which age bracket you belong to, eating breakfast has always been, and always will be, a healthy and essential part of your lifestyle.
