Ever since nutritionist Adelle Davis made her famous statement, “Eat breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince, and dinner like a pauper,” breakfast has long been considered the most important meal of the day. I completely agree with this statement.

From my experience, I will say that eating the largest portion of food in the morning and at lunch, as well as reducing the number of meals (that is, refusing snacks) leads to a decrease in the body mass index (BMI).

While low-fat foods, quick breakfasts (cereal, oatmeal, white rice, milk, and honey, for example) impair your eating patterns, increase the number of snacks, and, as a rule, increase the total number of calories per day.

For breakfast, choose nutritionally valuable products that will ensure satiety, activate enzymes, produce hydrochloric acid in the stomach (only if you do not have specific health issues that should be addressed to the doctor), and start the work of the liver and biliary tract.

Focus on proteins (poultry, eggs, caviar, cheese, seeds, fish) and fats (yolk liquid, butter, cheese, fatty fish, caviar). Add some bread or a handful of cereal, and add vegetables, greens, and fruit or berries.

Finally, fitness and good health are two other important factors of a healthy diet: good lipid profiles, carbohydrate metabolism, normal vitamin D levels, normal protein levels, etc. Additionally, it boosts your desire for doing sport, and maintaining good habits, thereby preserving youth!

A balanced breakfast is a necessary component of a healthy diet. Have breakfast, friends!
