Start The Day Healthy!

Trying to get a teenager to Eat Breakfast can be tricky. Breakfast at my home is hit or miss. The Daughter will not eat on School day mornings. Last night she asked me to Straighten her hair in the morning. Told her "you have to get up at 05:45". she agreed. What a prefect time to make her favorite food, Dee's Buttermilk Pancakes with Chocolate chips. When she got up I had the Pancakes cooked and on the table. Didn't have to say a word, she dug right in. Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. One sleeps for about 7-10 hours, no fuel for the body during that time. At night our bodies work hard at repairing cells, organs and making sure every thing is working right. It is like a fast for 7-12 hours. Consider once you arise from your sleep,one does not go eat immediately. A Shower ,a cup of coffee, and getting dressed are the priorities. Therefore the fast could be 12 hours or longer. Now the body need fuel to start the day. The longer you go without food, your body will go into starvation mode. This is when it will store everything you eat. Storing it in Fat Cells for later use. And we all know how hard it is to get rid of those cells!
So,breaking the Fast is important. Eating Breakfast will help you loose weight. Enjoy Breakfast.
