May 15th, 2017 | Posted by Jeffery R Van Treese DDS in Oral Health | Tooth decay

Is breakfast really more important than all the other meals?

Yes, because breakfast sets the tone for your day, and affects all your other meals and how they affect your health. Dr. Van Treese, in Sidney, OH, has your best overall health in mind. Therefore, Dr. Van Treese wants to ensure that you know exactly what makes breakfast so important. 

Healthy Breakfast Foods

One common mistake people make is skipping breakfast in order to lose more weight. Skipping breakfast will actually have the reverse affect on your weight loss goals. This is because skipping breakfast will slow your metabolism, and you will tend to overeat at lunch.

Secondly, eating breakfast will boost your energy and your mood. Many people will skip breakfast and drink caffeine in the morning to wake up. However, the carbohydrates you consume at breakfast time will result in a natural boost of energy. Additionally, if you eat breakfast, as stated above, you will not eat too much at lunch time, and avoid that after lunch “crash.” 

Last, but certainly not least, breakfast is an excellent provider of many key vitamins and nutrients. Fruits contain many vitamins, fibers, and acids that will boost your health and immune system. Additionally, many breakfast foods, like oatmeal, will help to lower your cholesterol. 

What’s the best food to eat for breakfast?
