Breakfast Removes Cholesterol, Blood Sugar And Weight

The breakfast is the most important meal in the day, and
should never be skipped.

There are many people who believe that they support their
health by omitting breakfast, and according to the Association of UK Dieticians
(BDA), only two-thirds of adults in the UK eat breakfast regularly, and around
three-quarters of Americans.


 

Some maintain that the importance of this first meal in the day is
wisely included in its name: we’re advised to eat it to break our
overnight fast.

According to dietician Sarah Elder, the body uses a lot of
energy stores for growth and repair through the night, so a balanced breakfast
helps to boost the energy levels, as well as the amounts of protein and calcium
used throughout the night.

It energizes the body, improves concentration, and helps the
body to burn calories. Studies have shown that breakfast is linked to improved
memory, and a lower risk of heart disease, obesity, disease, and high
cholesterol.

When we skip breakfast, we experience increased cravings as
the sugar levels in the body are low, and we end up overeating during the rest
of the day.

The following breakfast recipe is a healthy option to start
the day. It will support the calorie-burning process, lower cholesterol and
glucose levels, and help you lose excess weight.

Its main ingredients are oats and chia seeds. Chia seeds are
abundant in omega 3 and omega 6 fatty acids, and the powerful antioxidants and
anti-inflammatory properties improve heart health and fight arthritis, and
diverticulosis. An ounce of chia seeds contains 27 % phosphorus, 18 % calcium,
30 % manganese, as well as smaller levels of copper and potassium.

On the other hand, oatmeal is a rich source of beta-glucan,
a soluble fiber that lowers bad cholesterol. Oats are also high in manganese,
selenium, zinc, magnesium, iron, thiamin, phosphorus, etc. A cup of cooked
oatmeal contains 150 calories, 4 grams of fiber and 6 grams of protein.
