Why You Should Eat Breakfast

Most of us start very early in the morning and have a variety of excuses why we don’t/won’t eat breakfast, most often a) I’m never hungry this early or b) I’m in too big a rush.  You don’t have to go to medical school to realize that your blood glucose levels will be low after 8-10 hours of no food.  It’s why things like donuts and sweet cereals are so popular for breakfast  But a quick infusion of sugar to spike your serum glucose leads to a spike of insulin which leads to hypoglycemia.  Not a good idea if you want to stay awake in class or be sharp when seeing patients.

It’s much better to eat a breakfast with carbohydrates, protein and little fat if you want to sustain your glucose levels.  There are a lot of other advantages to eating a good breakfast.

No one with a busy schedule is going to spend time preparing a “fancy” breakfast in the morning.  But there are many, many good options that don’t take any time at all.  I’ve listed some great websites and recipes below – but don’t limit yourself to these.  Look into typical breakfast choices in other countries, eat the leftovers from last night’s dinner…. Just don’t skip breakfast!
