We all have listened that breakfast is the most important meal which you should never skip. Eating breakfast has many benefits to your health and skipping this important meal can reduce your weight loss success and your general well-being. And there are many other reasons why you shouldn’t skip breakfast if you are trying to lose weight.

Bad for your heart

People who skip breakfast have about 27% more chances of sustaining a heart attack when compared to those who eat breakfast. The rate of risk is not so worrisome. In fact indulging in a healthy breakfast could actually curb the risk of heart attacks.

Higher Risk Of Type-2 Diabetes

Women who have the habit of avoiding breakfast were at a higher risk of developing Type-2 diabetes than women who had their daily breakfast. Even worse, working women who skipped their morning meals had 54% more chances of developing Type 2 diabetes.

Lowers your metabolism

One of the worse things about skipping breakfast is that it lowers your metabolism. Your metabolism is your body’s ability to burn calories and is often referred to as your body’s furnace. Eating regularly helps to keep the ‘fire burning’ and by skipping breakfast you are essentially letting the ‘fire’ burn out. it is the particularly bad first thing in the morning as your body has been fasting all night and breakfast helps to kick start your metabolism and provides you with energy for the day ahead.

Weight gain

You won’t believe me but skipping your morning meal, results in weight gain. Forgoing eating anything for breakfast also results in an increase in craving for fatty and sugar-rich foods later in the day. Furthermore, due to the increased hunger pangs, you are sure to eat anything that you can get your hands on for that day. The result is increased weight, exceeding the needed calorie intake for a day.

 Lowers your energy levels

When you skip breakfast and don’t provide your body with any fuel, you also don’t provide yourself with any energy. We all need to eat a certain amount of calories a day to ensure our bodies are getting enough energy. When you don’t provide enough fuel, it is very hard for your body to do everything it needs to do each day. This will leave you tired and lethargic, and you’ll find it very difficult to get through the day, not to mention exercise.


Breakfast being the first meal of the day results in producing controlled levels of blood sugar. However, when a person skips their breakfast, the blood sugar levels fall drastically, resulting in an excessive release of hormones that enter the bloodstream to compensate for the reduced glucose levels. The action shoots the blood pressure levels, which results in frequent headaches and migraines. Eating breakfast can help reduce the occurrence of migraines.

Hair loss

A diet that lacks in protein can result in the reduced development of keratin, which is the source for healthy hair and growth of hair. Breakfast is an important meal, as it provides the needed nutrients, proteins, and carbohydrates necessary for the body to produce energy. It further provides the needed resources that promote the growth of hair follicles.

Menstrual irregularities

The irregularities further included excessive bleeding and painful menses. Additionally, it also resulted in suffering from constipation. These are high among teenagers, who are going through their “post-adolescent maturation” growth. Skipping your breakfast in these conditions negatively affects the growth of the body.
