Do Your Heart a Favor By Eating Breakfast

New research has recently been conducted proving that breakfast really is the most important meal of the day.

Not only does the first meal jump start your metabolism; new research conducted by the Harvard School of Public Health claims their findings prove that long-term effects of skipping breakfast can lead to 27% higher risk of suffering a heart attack or developing heart disease.

Men aged 45-82 were the focus group of the study.  However, researchers believe that this pattern may also increase the chances for heart attack and heart disease in younger groups among both genders.

How does a lack of morning eating lead to heart problems, you ask? Researchers theorize that those who skip breakfast are more likely to binge on heavier or unhealthier meals later in the day.

Research also found that those who eat just before bed experience over a 50% higher risk of developing coronary heart disease.

The old adages appear to be true. Just remember not to eat 2 hours before going to bed and be sure not to miss the most important meal of the day.

What are some words of wisdom that you live by?
