October Weight Loss Challenge: Day 25 Eating Breakfast

*BONUS DAY-
One member who replies to this post will be chosen at random to WIN a CafeMom Water Bottle!

Welcome to Day 25 of the October Weight Loss Challenge!

Do you eat breakfast on a daily basis?

If not, why not?

What does a typical breakfast for yourself consist of?

A healthy breakfast is the energy fuel you need to start your day. After sleeping all night and going without food, your energy reserves are low and need to be replenished.

By eating breakfast, your blood sugar rises and your metabolism is recharged.

The benefits of a healthy breakfast are:

  • Provides necessary nutrients to kick start the day

  • Regular breakfast promotes healthier body weight.

  • Daily breakfast regulates appetite, reduces snack cravings

  • Reduces chances of overeating during the day

  • Reduces the risk of developing Type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease

  • Helps stabilize hormones and blood sugar levels

  • Reduces fatigue and sleepy feeling mid-morning

  • Spurt in energy levels, positive attitude.

  • Improves concentration, boosts brain power

  • Helps in weight maintenance efforts

  • Increases alertness

  • Improves overall health and well-being

I usually just have an egg or something small and then some fruit a few hours later. Mornings are hectic.

While I try to eat a more balanced breakfast, I usually end up eating toast with a cup of tea.

I'm just not a breakfast person - I'm never that hungry in the morning! But I do make sure I eat a little something every day.
