  1. The Power of Breakfast
    Breakfast comes from the saying, “to break one’s fast”. It’s easy, though, to find reasons to skip breakfast—we overslept, we aren’t hungry, we are in a hurry, we’re late, or we just 
    aren’t a “breakfast eater”. Here are some reasons to not skip breakfast:

    • Breakfast eaters tend to be healthier. Starting the day off with a balanced meal allows more nutrients to be consumed, with more nutrients comes an improved immune system, more manageable stress levels and a faster metabolism.
    • Eating breakfast also helps with weight maintenance. Typically, eating a meal within one hour of waking will help the body utilize the calories consumed for energy or fuel. We get a metabolism boost from this and will have more energy throughout the day. When one skips breakfast, the body will hold onto these calories because it is unsure the next time a meal will be consumed. Weight management is more difficult to sustain and can often lead to overeating later in the day.
