WHY Is Breakfast The Most Important Meal Of The Day?

Breakfast is known as the most important meal of the day. 

But why?

Because of the long break between dinner and your next meal, breakfast has a very different effect on your body than any other meal. 

When you eat a healthy breakfast within two hours of waking, your body is able to metabolize and absorb glucose (blood sugar) much slower. This allows you to keep a healthy balance between glucose and insulin. Think of insulin as a shuttle for the glucose to enter your cells. This balance is important because when your glucose levels spike and rise dramatically, your pancreas doesn't know how to react. This causes it to start overproducing insulin until it burns out. Once your pancreas burns out, it stops producing insulin, causing your blood sugars to rise dramatically, which leads to type 2 diabetes, weight gain, and eventually heart disease. 

By waking up and feeding your body nutrient dense, natural foods with plenty of protein, healthy fats, and veggies, you'll keep your systems regulated and live a happier healthier life. 

This is one thing you can start today to improve your quality of life.
