Many of my customers ask if they really need to eat breakfast. ”I have never eaten breakfast, I cannot eat in the morning, I feel sick”. In this situation I ask the following questions:
- What’s you energy level at lunchtime? How hungry are you? Are you able to control your portion size?
- Can you work efficiently in the morning? Are you able to concentrate when you are feeling hungry? How about in the afternoon, after a heavy lunch?
- Do you get all the nutrients you need? Enough vitamins, protein and fibre? Usually breakfast is well balanced and nutrient-rich.
Very few can pass these questions. Being a breakfast eater or a non-breakfast eater is usually a matter of getting used to. You can learn both habits. Try having a healthy breakfast and see how it affects your weight control, energy levels and moods.
Evaluate your habits honestly. What did you answer?
