The Importance Of Breakfast
By Timothy Rea

Let’s start where we all start . . . with breakfast! So many
people tell me that they skip breakfast because they’re trying
to lose weight. When I explain that it has the exact opposite
effect, they just can’t comprehend that. But it’s true. And for
those of you who do not currently eat breakfast, here’s some
irrefutable statistics for you:

1) Those who eat breakfast away from home have a 137% increased
in the risk of becoming obese.
2) Those who did not eat breakfast at all had a 450% increased
risk of becoming obese,
3) Those who did not eat breakfast had a higher body mass index
(BMI), and had less energy during the day.
4) Those who ate breakfast were less inclined to snack
compulsively than those who skipped breakfast.
5) Those who skipped breakfast wound up eating 40% more
calories during the day.
6) Those who ate a protein-based breakfast such as eggs, toast
and jelly, felt fuller longer, and consumed fewer calories for
at least 24 hours afterwards. Two groups were compared: one
group, which ate a bagel, cream cheese, and yogurt, consumed a
daily average of 2,035 calories. The egg-based group ate 1,761
calories.

An ideal breakfast should contain between 500-600 calories. And
it’s not just what you eat, but when you eat it. Now, here are
the very best breakfast menus we’ve come across . . .

Tid Bit: Did you ever wonder why you felt so good at the seas
shore?

French seawater specialists attribute the curative effects to
the revitalizing seashore climate-the negative ions in the sea
airlift one's mood, they say, and the higher atmospheric
pressure slows breathing and calms the nervous system. They also
claim that seawater is so similar to human blood plasma that a
soak in it (or a wrap of algae) can transfer nourishing trace
elements through the skin into the bloodstream.
