MANY PEOPLE IN TODAY'S BUSY LIFESTYLE FORGET TO EAT THE FIRST MEAL OF THE DAY. THE MOST IMPORTANT DIET OR MEAL OF THE DAY IS BREAKFAST.
BREAKFAST MEANS BREAK THE FAST. WHEN YOUR BODY WAKEUP IT DEMANDS ALL NUTRIENTS, ACTUALLY SOMETIMES BODY BEG FOR THE 114 NUTREINTS OR IT CRAVE FOR THESE NUTRIENTS TO WORK PROPERPLY ON DAILY BASIS. SO WHAT YOU ACTUALLY GIVES... NOTHING OR JUST COFFE OR TEA WITH SOME SIMPLE CARBS.
WHAT R THOSE ESSENTIAL NUTREINTS?
An essential nutrient is a nutrient that the body cannot synthesize on its own -- or not to an adequate amount -- and must be provided by the diet. These nutrients are necessary for the body to function properly. The six essential nutrients include carbohydrates, protein, fat, vitamins, minerals and water.
Carbohydrates are the main energy source for the brain. Without carbohydrates, the body could not function properly. Sources include fruits, breads and grains, starchy vegetables and sugars. Make at least half of the grains you consume whole grains. Whole grains and fruit are full of fiber, which reduces the risk of coronary heart disease and helps maintain normal blood glucose levels. 55 TO 60% OF YOUR ENERGY COMES FROM CARBS.
Protein is the major structural component of cells and is responsible for the building and repair of body tissues. Protein is broken down into amino acids, which are building blocks of protein. Nine of the 20 amino acids, known as essential amino acids, must be provided in the diet as they cannot be synthesized in the body. 15 TO 25% percent of your daily calories should come from lean protein sources such as low-fat meat, dairy, beans or eggs OR PLANT PROTEIN.
Fat is an energy source that when consumed, increases the absorption of fat-soluble vitamins including vitamins A, D, E and K. 15 tO 20% percent of your daily intake should come from fat. Choose healthy options such as omega-3-rich foods like fish, walnuts and vegetable-based oils. Omega-3s help with development and growth. Limit intake of saturated fats such as high-fat meats and full-fat dairy. Other smart choices include nuts, seeds and avocado.
Vitamin C is necessary for the synthesis of collagen, which provides structure to blood vessels, bone and ligaments. Rich sources include citrus fruits, strawberries and peppers. Folate, found in foods, helps to prevent birth defects. Pregnant women or women who plan to become pregnant should speak with their physician about taking a folic acid supplement, the synthetic form of folate, in addition to their diet. Vitamin D helps to maintain calcium homeostasis. It can be found in food sources or synthesized by the sun.
Sodium helps to maintain fluid volume outside of the cells and helps cells to function normally. Keep intake under 2,400 milligrams per day. Potassium maintains fluid volume inside and outside of cells and prevents the excess rise of blood pressure with increased sodium intake. Rich sources include bananas, potatoes and tomatoes. Calcium helps to maintain and build strong bones and teeth. Include three servings of calcium-rich foods per day including milk, low-fat cheese and yogurt.
Water helps to maintain homeostasis in the body and transports nutrients to cells. Water also assists in removing waste products from the body. All beverages and high-moisture foods such as soup and watermelon contain water and count towards your daily water requirement. Adults should consume 25 to 35 milliliters of fluids per kilogram body weight or 2 to 3 liters per day.
SO YOU NEED ALL THESE IMPORTANT NUTREINTS IN BREAKFAST ?
THERE ARE MANY REASONS TO EAT HEALTHY NUTRITIOUS BREAKFAST, FEW MOST IMPORTANT ARE:
1. INCREASES METABOLIC RATE
Your body has been in starvation mode all night. Wake it up with something nourishing and this will help keep your waistline trim by increasing your body's metabolic rate (fat-burning potential).
2. BALANCES BLOOD SUGAR
Provided you are not eating a white bagel or a muffin, your mood and energy will be good and you will reduce the risk of diabetes, heart
3. GETS YOU ON TRACK TO MAKE HEALTHY CHOICES ALL DAY
People who eat breakfast tend to eat a healthier diet overall. Makes sense right? I know this to be true for every client I consult, as soon as they get on the right track with their breakie, they are so inspired and motivated for the rest of the day to make better choices.
4. GIVES YOU ENERGY (NOT JUST PHYSICAL), INCREASES YOUR MENTAL & CREATIVE POWER
Think about the fact that you are literally FEEDING YOUR BRAIN when you eat breakfast.
5. PROMOTES DETOXIFICATION
Gets things moving in your gut after being in starvation mode all night. After you eat, food is pushed through and should be pushed out, making room for another meal to be digested.
6. YOU WILL EAT LESS LATER ON IN THE DAY IF YOU EAT BREAKFAST.
Fuel up in the morning to avoid mindless snacking later in the day!
7. SKIPPING BREAKFAST INCREASE YOUR BODY'S INSULIN RESPONSE
This, in turn, increases fat storage (muffin-top).
8. SKIPPING BREAKFAST IS ASSOCIATED WITH DECREASED PHYSICAL ACTIVITY
Less activity, less energy (weight gain), increased risk of depression.
9. BREAKFAST SKIPPERS TEND TO EAT MORE JUNK LATER IN THE DAY
Chips, candy, you name it! People who don't eat breakfast will likely nosh down on this stuff later in the day than those who eat a healthy breakfast.
10. MANY PEOPLE TELL ME THEY DON'T HAVE TIME FOR BREAKFAST.
Sorry, but this is no excuse. Would your car perform efficiently if you decided you didn't have time to fill it with FUEL? Would your bicycle work if you decided you didn't have time to fill the tires with air? Make time for yourself. YOU are the best person to take care of you. Taking just 10 minutes of mindful time in the morning for fueling your body with goodness is an affirmation to yourself that you are 100% worth it.
