5 reasons breakfast rocks
Say No to Fat
When you eat breakfast, it gets your metabolism going and helps you avoid becoming obese. It also gives you some energy so that you’re not starving later, which means you’ll eat less throughout the day. Typically, people who eat breakfast are able to follow healthier eating habits by having lots of small meals, instead of a couple huge ones. And it’s just better in general to eat earlier in the day when you still have time to burn off those calories.
Rise and Shine
Having that energy boost from breakfast will help you wake up fully in the morning. And that can be super-helpful when you get stuck with math class first period. Since ya can’t bring your pillow to school, it’s probably best to have some food and wake up the right way.
A+, Comin’ Right Up!
Eating breakfast actually helps you perform better in school, so if you’re shootin’ for straight A’s this semester, cereal is your ticket. Gals who eat breakfast before school can remember things better, concentrate more, and solve problems faster. Make sure you ace all your tests, and grab some oatmeal on your way out the door!
Wait, making and eating breakfast takes time, doesn’t it? Yes, it does, but you’ll get that time investment back once you get to school and aren’t wandering around in a daze for the first few hours. Wouldn’t you rather chat with your besties in homeroom instead of fumbling with your locker combination and dropping all your textbooks in the hall? Make sure you’re ready to go by chowin’ down first thing in the morning, and leave the klutziness at home.
If you eat something that you like when you wake up, chances are you won’t be so grumpy in the morning. And if your stomach isn’t growling and hurting, that’s always nice, too. You can even feel positive about the fact that you’re keeping your diet healthier overall and that you could lose some weight with this new breakfast thing.
