Breakfast in literal terms means to “break the fast”. It provides a fuel to the brain and the body after an overnight fast. However, a cup of coffee is not sufficient. No matter what time you have breakfast it is important to break your fast with something that is easily digested and full of nutrients.
A healthy breakfast gives your body an opportunity to consume essential vitamins and minerals that are required for the proper growth and maintenance of the body, strength of bones and immune system, and proper carbohydrate and protein metabolism. Those with the habit of having a good start to the day are more likely to not eat excess fats.
