The Importance Of Breakfast


Have you ever heard someone tell you "Breakfast is the most important meal" of the day.

I don't know about you, but if you enjoy eating like me, ALL meals are very important. That being said, breakfast does play an important role in your day, particularly if you're one who tends to exercise during those early morning hours. I know there are times following my morning workouts where I am just famished.

There's a reason for that - you're body has gobbled up needed fuel - duh! It really is that simple. According to this article by Nancy Clark for www.active.com, you need to learn what to eat for breakfast to create the best benefit for you.

She has some great suggestions for healthy breakfast meals based on whether you are a morning, afternoon or evening exerciser. I also believe her suggestion that a solid breakfast prevents "binge" eating is true.

I have the opposite problem after an early morning workout. It takes awhile for my stomach to catch up. Hoping some of the suggestion breakfasts for early morning runners will help. Thanks!

I agree! Breakfast is definitely the most important meal of the day. I am working on adding protein every morning and I can really tell a difference when I do. So true, as well about breakfast impacting what you eat the rest of the day. Thanks for the post and the link!
