You’ve prob­a­bly heard it over and over again like a bro­ken record, ‘Don’t skip break­fast’, ‘Eat in the morn­ing’, ‘Break­fast keeps you going all day’, bla bla… Yes, sor­ry to con­firm it yet again. It. Is. True. Break­fast is impor­tant.

But hey, wait a sec­ond. What real­ly is the big deal about break­fast? You won’t die if you skip it, right? And no one gets hurt, right? Right. I’m not writ­ing to ram this down your throat yet again, but to make my case from a log­i­cal and sci­en­tif­ic point of view.

So think of this: you wake up in the morn­ing to dis­cov­er your car fuel tank is bleep­ing ‘Emp­ty’! Would you rather find your way to the near­est fill­ing sta­tion or just set out dri­ving with­out giv­ing a hoot?

Exact­ly. You wouldn’t. Nobody would. And that is also the same sit­u­a­tion with our bod­ies each morn­ing. Experts have proven that each night when you sleep, your body is prac­ti­cal­ly drained of its ‘fuel’, sim­ply because it has ‘fast­ed’ all night.

So, this is why you need to ‘break’ the ‘fast’ every morn­ing. By choos­ing not to break the fast (no mat­ter how light the meal is), you have set your­self up for a long, tir­ing, irri­ta­ble and binge-eat­ing day ahead. Break­fast sim­ply helps to kick start your body so as to func­tion opti­mal­ly all day long. Break­fast also helps to speed up your metab­o­lism, in oth­er words, your diges­tion will be faster. If you’re look­ing to main­tain your weight, eat­ing in the morn­ing is the way to go. It will help you eat a lot less­er dur­ing the day.

Now, break­fast doesn’t have to be com­pli­cat­ed. It could be some­thing as sim­ple as juice, crois­sants, nuts, cook­ies, choco­late, bananas, apples, cere­als, sand­wich­es, sal­ad or some piz­za. And you could opt for more tra­di­tion­al break­fasts like boiled or scram­bled eggs with bread, or baked beans, toma­toes, mush­room, sausage and toast bread.

Some light local dish­es such as plan­tain and eggs, ‘akara’ and ‘eko’,  puff puff, among oth­ers, can also suf­fice. Be sure to take a lot of water in the morn­ing and in the course of the day. It helps to re-hydrate your body and keep you going.
