Are you one of the 12% that don’t eat breakfast or one of the more than 50% of people who skip it at least once a week!? Post op bariatric patients need to take breakfast very seriously please.
I’m sure you’ve heard this a hundred times….but breakfast REALLY is the most important meal of the day!
People who skip breakfast will usually say it’s because they do not have enough time, would rather hit the snooze button, or simply do not have anything to eat at home.
Research has found that “skipping breakfast is associated with a significantly higher risk of obesity.”
And that’s not it! If you eat a healthy breakfast…
- It has been proven to improve spatial and short-term memory
- It will boost your energy levels throughout the day
- It will enhance your ability to concentrate, focus, and get stuff DONE!
- It means you’ll be MORE likely to exercise more often
- It means you’ll be less likely to drink alcohol and smoke
