Why Do I Need To Eat Breakfast?

Posted on February 17th, 2015 by Chips Restaurants

Chip's Family Restaurant, Connecticut, Breakfast“It’s too early.” “I’m not hungry.” “I don’t have time.” All three excuses commonly used to get out of eating breakfast. But while you really just might not be hungry or don’t have enough time to sit down and enjoy a “real” meal, the benefits of eating breakfast are too important to push aside; below are just a few –

Heart Health – Being that February is American Heart Month, there is no better time to discuss how eating breakfast can help your heart. According to an article on consumerreports.org, a study showed that men who didn’t eat breakfast in the morning were 27% more likely to develop heart disease.

Diabetes – By eating a hearty meal every morning, you might just be able to work on avoiding unsteady glucose levels. Since this quality can cause diabetes to develop, eating breakfast can therefore lower your risk for having it!

Weight Control – If you’re looking to lose weight or maintain your current weight, skipping breakfast is certainly not the answer. Although you might think avoiding those morning calories will help, some studies suggest that eating in the morning can cause you to have more success than if you save all of your calories for later.

Energy – Do you tend to feel bogged down in the morning? If you have a hard time getting your day started, it could be attributed to your lack of breakfast. Additionally, eating breakfast in the morning can assist you with your memory, attention span and even learning!
