Skipping Breakfast: Healthy or Harmful

Every individual in this world wants to lead a healthy life. Whatever the social status or economic status of an individual is, his main basis of health is food. People not only want to be healthy but they want to remain fit and slim too. Especially women, they just want a Zero Size Figure and they are ready to do anything, they are always ready to go to the gym and they even skip their meals.

To be healthy, fit and slim skipping your meal, especially Breakfast is not any solution. Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. But it’s not your fault also. We understand the hectic schedule starts from the morning itself and not to get late, we prefer to skip our breakfast and leave for your work. Isn’t it? 

Skipping Breakfast can really be harmful to your physical and mental health. How skipping breakfast is harmful, let’s read-

People who eat breakfast tend to take in fewer calories in a day than those who do not eat food during breakfast time. People who do not eat breakfast tend to eat more sugary or high-fat foods, overeat in the evening and are more likely to be overweight. After a long time of fasting when you finally eat, it stores food as fat.

3. HEART PROBLEMS– Skipping breakfast may lead to heart-related diseases such as heart attack, high blood pressure or even causes diabetes.
