Dr. Casen, from the Drugless Doctor sent us this post that I think is very important on the benefits of eating a healthy breakfast on your health, and your energy levels!
A recent study that used brain scans to investigate breakfast’s effect on eating later in the day was presented at the Neuroscience 2012 conference. Subjects who SKIPPED breakfast were more attracted to images of high-calorie grub and consumed 20% MORE calories at lunch than those who ate breakfast. (womenshealthmag.com/March2013)
Takeaways from Dr. Casen-
1) Breakfast is the most important meal of the day (We learned this in grade school everyone!)
2) Start your day off with protein, this will help you to sustain your energy throughout the day and not spike your insulin levels. Doughnuts, pop tarts, and Lucky Charms may look attractive but your body and brain will suffer from those choices.
3) Proper planning is key! Make sure your fridge is stocked with healthy organic foods to prepare for you and your family.
4) Become label savvy. On average, women and men who read nutrition labels weigh NINE pounds less than those who don’t.
Thank you Dr. Casen for these important tips! There are so many reason to start your off with at least a healthy snack, even if it’s just for that small energy boost! Check out my Pinterest board full of great, healthy snack ideas here!
