Why is breakfast so important?

by Dr. Kathleen Hall

Laura, Medical studies reveal that people who eat breakfast regularly show increases in learning ability, attention span, and a general well being. Conversely, people who skip breakfast show an increase in weight gain and memory impairment.

Eating breakfast increases your metabolic rate by 25 percent, which is one of the reasons why people report feeling better early in the morning. The American Heart Association suggests that you may be more prone to diabetes and obesity if you skip your morning meal because breakfast helps control your appetite for the rest of the day.
