Breakfast, which literally means breaking the fast, is one of the most important meals of the day. Unfortunately, we tend to ignore or skip this meal the most due to the rush during mornings. This leads to a imbalance in the body and makes you tired before time due to loss of energy. Breakfast gives you the energy booster to work throughout the day (just like petrol to a car!) Again, for those who are trying to lose weight, breakfast is of utmost importance. It is said to help in increasing metabolism, which leads to shedding those extra kilos. A heavy and sumptuous breakfast may also keep a person full for a longer time, which helps them to avoid binging on fast and junk foods during those untimely hunger pangs. Hence the proverb "eat breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince and dinner like a pauper" is a universal truth.
