Importance of Breakfast

Do you know, why Breakfast is an important meal of the day? Do breakfast like a king because it is the most important diet of the day. We have all been reading and listening since childhood. Yet there are very few people who follow this and have breakfast on time. Many people avoid breakfast and give a reason like sometimes going to work early, or saying that they are not hungry in the morning. Remember that breakfast in the morning keeps us energetic throughout the day. Taking breakfast full of vitamins and minerals keeps the body healthy. Not eating breakfast causes weight gain, heart diseases, diabetes, and stress.

Breakfast not only gives energy but is also helpful in preventing heart diseases.
