It has been played in our ears over and over, breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Yes we know that, but do we always do what we know? Nine times out of ten the answer is no. But really, come morning after sleeping between six and ten hours our bodies are staving, which includes the brain . This amazing organ requires nutrients to perform it’s intended functions and that is making decisions, mood control and appetite control.
Having a healthy breakfast will facilitate these things and help the body regulate itself. We should focus on putting the ideal foods in at the ideal time. Breakfast should consist of good carbs, a good source of protein and a piece of fruit. The protein is on of the most important when breaking the fast. It feeds the brain with glucose that comes from it. Protein is the first thing that crosses the blood barrier in the morning and gives it the fuel to produce the chemicals needed for the hormones and moods to be on par such a dopromaine and tyrosine.. This barrier impedes certain compounds that would like to infiltrate the brain from the blood. Carbohydrate is essential for energy that will more than likely last longer in the body.
When you are on a mission or have a purpose your body uses more energy, it is in a sense of excitement. In order to fulfill this purpose, the body needs to be prepared for the day’s work ahead. Nothing prepares it like breakfast.
Preparing your mind to do battle against poorness syndrome can be challenging. Good foods are expensive and the resources are not the available. But simple changes in the diet can make your brain more effective in going after what you want. Making better decisions, sticking to the plan and execution of said plan will be easier.
