5 Crucial Reasons Why You Shouldn’t Skip Breakfast

By: Joseph ‘Aqweci’ Ofori

“Breakfast is bae” says a school of thought. The other school of thought doesn’t see any problem with skipping breakfast. The latter usually ask the rhetoric, “What is breakfast?” Well, in a sarcastic reply, breakfast is the first meal taken in a day, thus in the morning.

People skip breakfast usually because of busy morning schedules. Some jobs don’t create space for you enjoy your breakfast in peace. Queuing in traffic each morning to make work is no joke. It gives one no time to enjoy a breakfast, hence people make it a habit.

Culture influences everything, and breakfast is no exception. In some parts of the world, making a breakfast is shorter than a quickie. It’s light, and doesn’t guarantee filling up your belly. In our beloved country Ghana, every meal is expected to make us full. In the journey of life as a typical Ghanaian, at least, for once someone will pose the question “is tea too considered food?” to you. This conception makes people see having breakfast to be a time consuming process, because after eating flakes, he/she shall crave for another meal.

Skipping breakfast can have its own demerits. Either of the two schools of thought can win a debate any day once this topic is raised. Let’s walk through 5 critical key points why one shouldn’t miss breakfast.

  1. To Acquire Energy: We’re advised of eating early to enhance complete digestion and metabolism. After enjoying a delicious supper, thus around 6 or 7 pm, one deprives the body of food for about 13-14 hours. Skipping a breakfast means expanding the body deprivation to adaptive levels. Our body constantly needs glucose. Hence it stores excess glucose in the form of glycogen. After all the barns of glycogen are also used up, fats are converted to glucose, a process called ketosis, which may result in unfavourable conditions.
  2. To Prevent Fainting: Speaking to Dietitian Stanley Ofosu Quansah, he made it clear that the average Ghanaian seeks curative care rather than preventive. Hence if one is diabetic, he/she may not know. “If a diabetic skips breakfast, his/her blood glucose level can be decreased to as little as 1 mmol/l. This can result in feeling unconscious and fainting.” explains Stanley.
  3. To Gain Enough Fuel for Daily Acitvities: The brain uses up 70% of all the glucose we take. We can all agree that in the morning we engage our minds a lot in various activities. So how can denying your body of it help you in this way? Stanley emphasizes a favourite catch statement of a dietitian which goes like “in the morning, eat like a queen. In the afternoon, eat like a king. And in the evening, eat like a slave.” They say this because according to the circadian rhythm (regular 24-hour cycle), human beings are naturally active in the day. Therefore you’d need to eat well during breakfast and lunch, and enjoy a light-weight meal as supper because in the night when you’re asleep, metabolism is quite dormant.
  4. To Prevent Unwanted Gain of Weight: Science reveals that if you continue depriving your body of breakfast, you store a lot of cholesterol or fat, making one gain unnecessary weight. Most of the time people apply the untrue logic that if you starve yourself you lose more weight. The actual fact is the other way round. If you want to continue being the slay mama or the fly guy with 6 packs you’re identified with, then you might not want to play games with your breakfast.
  5. To Prevent Mouth Odour: On a lighter note, one experiences mouth odour in the morning. One way of saving your breath is taking breakfast with a good scent appeal. People usually think once you brush your teeth you’re safe and clean of all sorts of mouth odour. But as you starve you produce a lot of saliva which you may be tempted to wipe your dry mouth with it, to keep it moist, promoting bad odour. Have you realized keeping your mouth shut for a long time promotes bad breath? Take your breakfast and stay active and fresh throughout the day.

After gaining this insight I trust I can easily guess the school of thought you’re with now. Breakfast is quite essential. If it takes skipping mountains and maneuvering valleys to get it, I advise you do it. You don’t need fufuo or waakye to call it breakfast. Porridge, oats, corn flakes, tom brown, semolina, and such light meals are good breakfast meals that are easy to prepare. Now in your subsequent mornings when you’re about to have your palatable breakfast, crack a smile and remember this article.

Ebony Drops Potential Christmas Banger “Hustle” Featuring Brella

Since Ebony’s publicity team announced that she has 2 bangers coming up which are potential Christmas hits, ears have been on the ground to hear what the 90s bad girl has for us. The “Sponsor” hitmaker doesn’t disappoint as she gives us “Hustle” which features musician, Brella. Ebony sings about grinding to make both ends meet. It’s a struggle in the streets, so it’s only for Ebony to serve us with motivation. The most interesting part of the song is where she plays on words [again], saying “Mo ndi me oooh, mo ndi me dwa.” Listening to that statement alone may make you draw a conclusion that she’s being profane. But it’s actually Ebony pleading with customers/consumers to buy her items, since she puts up the personality of a trader in the song. the fast tempo Afropop song was produced by Danny Beatz. This is a potential hit!
