“Breakfast – the most important meal of the day” – has always been a controversial topic, especially since there are differing expert opinions and observational studies. On the one hand, the team “no breakfast is a no go” argues that a balanced breakfast stimulates the metabolism and provides the body with the energy it needs to start the day efficiently and focused. Furthermore, you can prevent cravings and thus avoid constant “snacking”. This is saving calories in a simple way and at the same time preparing the body for the day ahead.
On the other hand, the “omit the breakfast” side believes that it is easier to maintain your weight with no breakfast. Longer fasting breaks (intermittent fasting) should give the body and organs more time for recovering and regenerating. This can also have a positive effect on blood pressure, blood sugar and blood fat levels.
In the United States, nearly one in four adults leave the house without breakfast because they may not be hungry or because they don’t have the time.
Fast breakfast options might be the right solution here, which can be varied in a fantastic way and are also well suited to take on the go! For example, overnight oats can be prepared the night before in a jar and then eaten on the way to work. Another great option are smoothies, which can be quickly prepared. It’s also ideal to take to the office for a late breakfast.
