Breakfast is a very important meal and it can make or break your day. But is it really so?
Millions of people around the world do not like to start their morning with breakfast, which can be due to various reasons.
However, if you accept this habit, the consequences for the body will be shocking. We highlight following factors which you can experience if you skip breakfast in morning.
Smell in the breath
People who are not used to eating breakfast are twice as likely to have bad breath, as the body is deprived of food in the morning, which leads to the appearance of bacteria of bad breath
Some people may think that skipping breakfast can make it easier to lose weight, but this is not the case. Some studies have shown that morning fasting is associated with obesity.
Probably the reason they feel so bad is because they burn more calories later on. Filling your stomach shortly before bed can lead to weight gain.
One study found that eating less food throughout the day without breakfast can lead to weight gain as the habit affects the body’s internal clock.
Fatigue during the day
In the morning we wake up after a good night’s sleep, i.e. the stomach is empty for several hours, which leads to a decrease in physical energy levels.
After breakfast, the body begins the process of providing the necessary energy from fatty acids, but not having breakfast can lead to sudden fatigue in the afternoon, while it can be difficult to concentrate.
Effect on mood
The habit of not eating breakfast has also been linked to sudden mood swings in adults. People who don’t eat anything in the morning are more likely to be depressed than others.
Likewise, skipping breakfast 4 or 5 times a week can increase your risk of type 2 diabetes by 55%, and your blood sugar can also plummet.
Low blood glucose negatively affects mood, and irritability and bad temper are more common.
The brain can be sharp
Researchers have found that skipping breakfast can negatively affect brain function.
Nutritionists say that breakfast is very important for people suffering from heartburn or high acidity of gastric juice. Lack of breakfast can increase gastric acidity, which can lead to heartburn and an upset stomach.
Headache and dizziness
Experts say that deliberately not eating can lead to headaches or migraines. Breakfast too late can be detrimental to the body as blood glucose levels drop dramatically.
Malnutrition-related headaches are often severe and accompanied by nausea, while jaundice and sweating are other symptoms.
Increased levels of stress hormones
Skipping breakfast can increase the amount of the hormone cortisol in the body, because the body perceives it as a stressful event that can lead to mental anxiety and irritability.
Heart disease risk
According to research reports, people who are not used to eating breakfast have a 21% higher risk of heart disease than others.
