Breakfast is a big part of our nutritional necessities. Big percentage of our energy came from the food we eat during the morning meal. However, most people today don’t take breakfast anymore for various reasons. Is this sounds like you?
There is a new term today that is called “bruch”. Do you know what it means? It means that you are only taking a meal every noon, where you combine breakfast and lunch hence it was called brunch. Today, I will discuss the various bad effects of not taking breakfast. 

Reasons Why People Don’t Eat in the Morning

There are various reasons why some people neglect the health significance of breakfast. Some are just plain lazy, some just don’t bother to cook while other just don’t have something to eat at all.
Sedentary lifestyle is one reason why people are not keen on taking breakfast. They perceive that skipping meals in the morning will support their non-active lifestyle to actually prevent weight gain. The more they are not into physical activity, the more they got conscious about their physical appearances, which leads them to eat less. Breakfast is the best time of the day for skipping meal.
Getting too busy with career and some businesses keeps people from taking breakfast. They rush all things up and the result is a less-breakfast lifestyle. 
There are other reasons why people don’t take breakfast. However, it is very important that you eat at least three times a day on proper time – morning, noon and evening. This help sustain our body’s needs with regards to nutrition. Irregular eating habit is disastrous and will lead to different health risks.

Well, there are dozens of studies about different issues of weight gain and skipping breakfast is not on its prevention list. Instead, not eating your breakfast meal will constitute to a more cravings in the afternoon which lead to much intense eating.
Studies regarding non-breakfast diet resulted to an additional 100 to 250 calorie intake per day. So the more you skip breakfast, the more you crave for food because you are starving.
