Detox your Diet: Breakfast the most important meal of the day

by Dr. Sharleen Hawco ND November 20, 2008

A healthy diet includes eating breakfast every morning. People who eat a healthy breakfast are more likely to: consume less fat and cholesterol in their diet, have better concentration and productivity throughout the morning, and have better control of their weight. Skipping breakfast often leads to overeating on the next meal.

After a long period of not eating (for example: overnight) our blood sugar drops. Low blood sugar stimulates the body to crave sugar, which will often lead to unhealthy snacking or unhealthy food choices, to satisfy that craving and hunger.

Eating a healthy breakfast can provide energy and satiety until your next meal. In general, think protein and fiber for breakfast. Both protein and fiber in the morning will help to slow digestion and the absorption of sugars. This means that you will be full for longer and your energy will remain consistent throughout the morning.
