Health on a Plate

BREAKFAST THE MOST IMPORTANT MEAL OF THE DAY

Counsels on Diet and Foods, p. 173.
“It is the custom and order of society to take a slight breakfast. But this is not the best way to treat the stomach. At breakfast time the stomach is in better condition to take care of more food than at the second or third meal of the day. The habit of eating a sparing breakfast and a large dinner is wrong. Make your breakfast correspond more nearly to the heartiest meal of the day.”

Science Demonstrates the Benefits of Breakfast
• One of seven factors found to correlate most strongly with longevity.

Belloc, N.B., & Breslow, L. (1972). Relationship of physical health status and health practices. Prev Med. 1(3):409-421.

• More efficient problem solving, improved memory, better test scores, increased verbal fluency, improved attention span, better attitudes (especially for students). , ,
• Superior nutritional profiles, better weight control, school attendance, and overall well-being.
• Higher IQ among the elderly.

Breakfast Skippers
Have a 2.5 x greater incidence of heart attacks—platelets become stickier in morning; this increases risk for clot formation which can lead to a heart attack (most heart attacks occur between 7 am-12 noon), and eating breakfast can help decrease the stickiness of the platelets.

Most people who do not eat a healthy breakfast tend to eat late at night. We need to eat the larger meal when we have the opportunity to burn the calories through the working day. At night, the body does no work, and should be allowed to rest without the burden of digestion.
So, friends, start your day with a good and large breakfast. You don’t have to eat less. You just have to eat right. And it all start with a good breakfast.

God bless you and give you good health.
