Many adults don’t eat breakfast regularly. But, there’s really no good reason not to have a healthy breakfast, no matter how busy you are. Here are a few good reasons that you should make a habitof eating breakfast:

1.     Eating breakfast will help you get the nutrients you need, like protein, fiber, calcium, and vitamin B. B vitamins are important because they help you to convert the food you eat into the energy you need to get through your day.
2.     Eating breakfast will help you to achieve or maintain a healthy weight. Skipping breakfast may mean you’ll be tempted to snack earlier and more often. People who skip breakfast are also more likely to do most of their eating late in the day, when their metabolisms are slowing down and the calories they eat are more likely to be stored as fat.
3.     Eating breakfast may be good for your heart. According to one U.S. survey, people who regularly ate breakfast had lower blood cholesterol levels than people who skipped breakfast.
4.     Eating breakfast will help you to be more productive throughout the day. Studies of people whose jobs involve physical work slow down by lunchtime if they skip breakfast. And, research in children and adolescents shows that problem-solving skills are less sharp in those who don’t have breakfast.
