5 Reasons You Should Never Skip Breakfast
In the rush to get up and out the door each morning, for goodness sake, don’t skip breakfast! Researchers at Harvard University recently found that skipping breakfast could increase your risk of heart attack by 27 percent. And while many are suggesting this study reflects general lifestyle habits more than it does the result of skipping breakfast—due to the fact that those who regularly eat breakfast are also less likely to be smokers, have high cholesterol or high blood pressure—eating breakfast is still more than just good advice from your mom. Eating breakfast every day has been shown to significantly help protect against cardiovascular disease, obesity, or diabetes and dysmenorrhea (acute pain during a woman’s menstruation), among other conditions.
Not only does eating breakfast help ward off these chronic health conditions, it also has been shown to help improve body weight, boost energy and heighten mental acuity. Pursuit of these benefits has guided much of the research conducted on breakfast consumption, specifically in relation to children and adolescents. That said, a host of research studies has also shown both short-term and long-term negative health impacts among adults who regularly forgo a morning meal.
