Eating Breakfast: Why It Matters
Rising and dining may help you enjoy more birthdays.
There’s a lot of information about whether eating breakfast matters, especially with the popularity of intermittent fasting. Now, a study of 5,761 people published in the Journal of the American Board of Family Medicine may leave you questioning the virtues of skipping the morning meal. The research linked regularly eating breakfast to a lower risk of overall and cardiovascular mortality, compared with not having breakfast.
Lower body mass index and higher dietary fiber intake among those who regularly partake in a daybreak meal could be significant reasons for the longevity benefits of your a.m. meal. The researchers found a 21% risk reduction in overall mortality for those who ate breakfast and consumed more than 25 grams of fiber daily.
