Ek was nog nooit iemand wat ontbyt geëet het nie, totdat Boendoe vertel het hoe sy dink deur in die oggend bietjie jogurt en muesli te eet haar gewig laat verloor het. Nou ja, ek doen dit ook nou en sien ook bietjie ‘n verskil aan die broeke wat gekrimp het. Sien, ek kan nie op Margate se strand gaan lê met die verskriklike lemoenskille en oortollige goed gepleisterde lyfie nie.!!! So gaan surf ek maar weereens om ‘n vinnige kuur te soek…..
Ek het op hierdie interessante stukkie afgekom van Karminsolutions. Hulle www sal by teen die einde van die week up en running wees. Dit het my weereens laat besef hoe belangrik ontbyt nou eintlik is!

Why eating breakfast is important
When you wake up in the morning after going 10 – 12 hours without food, your energy reserves are low and your body and brain need fuel. What you choose to eat for breakfast can affect your mood, physical and mental performance, weight and your general and long-term health.
What our body needs
What you ate yesterday consisted of two major groups of nutrients:
The first group supplied energy (proteins, fats, carbohydrates).
The second group supplied building material (proteins, amino acids, vitamins, minerals, micro-elements and many others).
You expended energy yesterday, whilst you were awake and active, and while you were asleep last night your body used up all the building material to regenerate itself. So you would have nothing left when you woke up this morning!
Our body wakes up in the morning needing to replenish what it used up yesterday, so on behalf of 100 trillion cells begs you, “Hey, I need more of those 114 nutrients and energy food which I used up yesterday!”
Now here is the big question – in answer to its plea – What do you give your body in the morning? Remember all our bodies wake up in the morning ’empty’ with normal sugar level. What we decide to eat for breakfast, will determine what will happen to our blood sugar level for the rest of the day.
In the morning, simple carbohydrates (sugary refined cereals, white breads, toasts, etc.) cause an immediate surge of blood sugar level which results in the body over compensating for the extra sugar load, the excess is converted and stored as fat. The result is a decreased level of blood sugar and a thirst for more carbs. This cycle too much carbs and the body over compensating repeats itself 2-3 more times during the day. This vicious cycle constitutes one of the reasons for the development of other major health challenges and extra weight.
When you skip breakfast, blood sugar drops below the normal level, you experience cravings for food and a drop in energy. You are again tempted to revert to simple carbohydrates to achieve a quick surge of energy. Simple carbohydrates will cause an immediate surge of blood sugar level followed by the body compensating for the extra sugar load. Excess sugar turns into fat. Then this cycle repeats itself 2-3 more times during the day. This vicious cycle constitutes one of the reasons for the development of other major health challenges and extra weight.
This is the reason for weight gain, high blood pressure and heart disease, taking its place with diabetes as the fastest growing lifestyle diseases in the world and it all starts with a BAD BREAKFAST.
Well, by now, you would like to know what a good breakfast is supposed to be, wouldn’t you?
The Balanced Breakfast
Your first meal in the morning should meet these four main criteria:
- 1. Replace the energy that was consumed yesterday, when you were active.
- 2. Provide the body with all the nutrients used during the night.
- 3. Replenish the water stock.
- 4. Maintain the energy levels within the normal range
With a Balanced Breakfast you keep your blood sugar levels in the normal range and so the insulin levels remain with in the normal ranges.
So, Zee gaan hard probeer vir die volgende paar weke om so bietjie oefening in te kry en ook om reg te eet!!
