If you're a seasoned breakfast skipper, change your ways and start eating breakfast – even if you aren't hungry. It takes two to three weeks to reset the appetite clock. After that, you should notice a boost in energy and fewer problems with overeating later in the day.
Avoid high-sugar breakfasts, such as doughnuts and coffee, which provide a quick boost, but leave you feeling drowsy within a few hours. Instead, choose meals with a mix of protein and starch. This will help you to maintain blood sugar levels throughout the morning.
People who eat breakfast are more likely to have better diets, maintain a healthy weight, have a higher dietary fiber intake, and feel and perform better throughout the day.
