The benefits of breakfast are plentiful. The most important meal of the day supports weight loss, reduces the risk of heart attack, and improves concentration. Still, many people skip breakfast, especially during the summer.
Generally, hot weather suppresses the appetite. People are also busy in the summer – rushing in early to work to enjoy more of the day and rushing to the beach as early as possible. This can lead some to nix breakfast.
However, skipping breakfast inevitably leads to late night snacks. Snacks typically tend to be far less healthy than a breakfast meal. Replacing a healthy breakfast with packaged snacks at night can increase the amount of sugar in your diet. This will increase your risk of tooth decay and gum disease.
This summer make sure you eat a healthy, balanced breakfast. Instead of fixing a snack late at night, prepare your breakfast for the next day. This way you will have something good to eat in the morning without having to cook in a hot kitchen or burn any daylight.
