Since I don’t have any morning classes, I sleep over the whole morning. People keep saying that eating breakfast is extremely important. Even during the summer vacation, I don’t have the habit of eating breakfast. Recently, I have been trying to get up early and have breakfast. I found that I get much more energetic after having breakfast.
Breakfast is the most important meal in a day. It provides the energy we need in the morning. There is a research shows that skipping breakfast results in weight gain. Because people who skip breakfast feel hungry before the next meal, they tend to eat more in the next meal. Or they will find something that contain a lot of calories to eat as sneak. There is also a theory claim that eating breakfast can make you perform better during the day.
Despite of whether breakfast is important, health risk exist if we do not have breakfast. A study done by Harvard recorded nearly 27000 men for about 16 years. Men who skipped breakfast were 27% more likely to have heart attack or die because of coronary heart disease. And men who skipped breakfast are more likely to be single, smokers, employed full-time, drink more alcohol and younger. They are also less likely to have contact with people who have breakfast. So most of their friends do not eat breakfast as well.
This study is observational so it is still hard to prove that people without having breakfast must have health risk. It is very important to have breakfast. We cannot deny that it brings lots of benefits to us, and it also has many bad effects on our body if we skip it. Also, having breakfast with friends is very interesting. We can see what we never see before, and the beautiful views in the morning. We should all wake up and have breakfast!
