Revs Up Your Metabolism
Chances are, you haven’t eaten anything for nearly 12 hours by the time you wake up. After this fast, your metabolism slows down to conserve energy, and when you eat, your metabolism ramps back up. If you’re trying to keep your weight down, or lose weight, a slowed-down metabolism is going to ruin your efforts.
What You Eat Matters
It’s one thing to eat because you want to keep your metabolism running optimally. It’s another to eat a bowl of cereal, which is packed with refined grains, sugar, and other less-than-ideal ingredients. Eating a healthy breakfast with whole grains, fruits, and nutritious proteins is the way to go (try our steak and eggs with a side of fruit!).
You’ll Stay Focused
Your brain requires sustenance to function, so when you starve your belly, you’re actually starving your brain, too. Studies have shown that breakfast eaters are far more focused, have a longer attention span, and are able to be more productive than those who skip it. Eggs produce a chemical that stimulates neurotransmitters responsible for memory and performance. Tony’s has a menu of delicious omelets to get your day started!
Can Lower Blood Pressure
When you eat a healthy breakfast with whole grains, proteins, and fruits, you’re contributing to keeping your cholesterol down and lowering your blood pressure. A study done in 2013 showed that men who skipped breakfast were actually more susceptible to having heart disease. Do your part to prolong your life and improve your health by eating breakfast!
You’ll be in a Better Mood
Are you familiar with the term “hangry”? It is a thing, and should be taken seriously. Eating produces dopamine, and when you don’t eat breakfast and have been fasting for 12+ hours, you’re running on empty in many ways. Protein stimulates dopamine, which is one of the chemicals in the body that affects mood. You’ll not only feel better, but you’ll be less likely to overindulge later in the day. And, additionally, those who do overindulge in the afternoon after skipping breakfast are more likely to crave sweeter foods that are full of sugar, as well as savory and high-fat foods.
As you can see, breakfast is the most important meal of the day, for many reasons. If you need the best breakfast in Pahrump, head over to Tony’s Grill! We have a fantastic breakfast menu with all the classics, which are designed to start your day off perfectly. Come see us today!
