    Good one on importance of eating breakfast in the morning ...

    Your brain (and central nervous system) run on glucose — that's the fuel you need to think, walk, talk, and carry on any and all activities. Let's say that the last time you eat something at night is at 10 or 11 PM (not optimal, just an example). The following day, you don't eat breakfast but wait until about noon or so to eat — you've gone thirteen or fourteen hours with nothing in your system. Your poor brain is surely deprived — and your body has to work extra hard to break down any stored carbohydrate or turn fat or protein into a usable form for your brain to function. That's a lot to ask for when you're sitting in a classroom, trying to concentrate on reading, or doing any other work. Eating breakfast has been proven (many times) to improve concentration, problem solving ability, mental performance, memory, and mood.
    Breakfast skippers also have a harder time fitting important nutrients into their diet. Many foods eaten at breakfast contain significant amounts of vitamins C and D, calcium, iron, and fiber.
    Some people believe that skipping breakfast may help them lose weight. Not so! Skipping meals often leads to overeating later in the day. Becoming overhungry often leads to a lack of control and distorted satiety signals (meaning it's hard to determine when you're full). This can result in taking in more calories than if one had an appropriate breakfast. As a matter of fact, it's easier to control one's weight by eating smaller meals and snacks more frequently. Whatever your choice, eat something. If you think you're doing fine with no breakfast, just try changing your tune for a week. You will undoubtedly perform better with some fuel in your system, and, hopefully, become a breakfast believer.

    From a true breakfast believer :yes:

    Thats a good one. I agree with you 100%.
    I learnt the importance of breakfast the hard way.
    I skipped having breakfast when I was a student and it started affecting my health real bad.
    Now I am determined not to repeat it anymore.:yes:

    hi Monsi,

    thankts a lot for this thread at least IL's whoever will read this thread will start taking breakfast if mom is eating children will eat oh there will be great improvement in food habit. i have seen many of us don't eat breakfast sometimes it will be at 11 or 12pm that is not breakfast. i am having my breakfast now while reading ur thread at 8.45am. breakfast is very important for women to maintain their health with good metabolism, for gents to have good efficiency in work and for children to growth and concentration on studies. it has been observed children who don't have breakfast are not able to concentrate which effects their studies. atleast two slice of bread and little milk everyone can have whether they have time or not.

    bye
