Benefits of Having a Healthy Breakfast Ritual
People who eat a healthy breakfast are far more likely to eat other healthy foods as the day goes on, and they are also less likely to overeat throughout the day, studies suggest. The Bath Breakfast Project, a study at the University of Bath in the United Kingdom found that eating breakfast leads to a “second meal effect,” as researchers called it. A healthy breakfast “primes your metabolism to maintain stable blood sugar levels after subsequent meals.” In other words, the positive effects of breakfast carry over into your future meals, making you less hungry and better able to manage your appetite as the day goes on.
In addition, eating a healthy breakfast can reduce your risk of obesity, type 2 diabetes and heart disease.
