You often hear people telling you that breakfast is one of the most important meals of the day. This is true, some of the reasons for this are that when you haven’t eaten for a while your body may start to conserve as much energy as it can, so when you start eating again you will begin to regain even more energy resulting in fat gains. Also if you are a student, breakfast is necessary to perform in the classroom it increases your focus and concentration providing better results and grades. Another good reason to eat breakfast if you are trying to put on some serious size is to break the catabolic fasting stage that your body goes through while you are asleep. The catabolic state is when the muscle begins to break down because the body uses protein to support its main functions. So if you’re serious into lifting or want to preserve muscle mass then you want to avoid this catabolic state and if you are serious enough like some people, they wake up in the middle of the night to eat.
There is a reason it is called breakfast, this is because it breaks the fast you create when sleeping when you break this fast you increase your metabolism, providing weight-loss, it is said a perfect diet consists of 6-7 small meals a day, breakfast being one of them. If you do not consume a healthy nutritious breakfast in the morning you are more likely to consume unhealthy food during the day which will increase fat gains.
One of the other reasons I eat a good breakfast each morning is to maintain a good mood, hunger causes mood swings and irritability, people who do eat breakfast seem to be in a much calmer, happier mood then those who do not.
