Eating nutritious food at the start of your day keeps you healthy, string, fresh and active. However, there are some people who take the morning meal very lightly. Some have a myth by taking a light breakfast or skipping it may lead to weight loss. However, this is not so true. Some in rush to office skip breakfast while some do not like to eat in the morning. So, read this article thoroughly and know why you should never skip your breakfast.

Weight Gain:

People have a myth that by skipping breakfast they will lose weight, however, this is not true. By not eating your breakfast, you will crave for sugary and fatty foods in the later day. The more hungry you’ll feel, the more food you’ll intake thus, increasing the prescribed limit of calories. Hence, you tend to gain weight.

Risk Of Diabetes:

Skipping breakfast regularly may deteriorate your blood lipid levels. While we sleep at night we continuously fast, therefore, if we do not eat in the morning too our body may become resistant to insulin thereby increasing the risk of diabetes.


Keeping an empty stomach for long may cause indigestion. When you stay hungry for long, your body increases the secretion of gastric juices. Therefore, your body produces acids that affect the stomach lining causing acidity.

Alters Mood:

The glucose available from the food we eat is the prime source of energy for the brain. Hence, if you skip your breakfast at the start of the day you may feel tired, irritated and may suffer from mood swings.


Skipping breakfast lowers the sugar level in your body. Hence, to compensate this, the body releases hormones and matches the glucose level. However, with the release of such hormones, your blood pressure may increase causing you a headache or migraine pain.
