Breakfast is indeed the most important meal of the day; in fact people say that you must eat breakfast like a kind, lunch like a queen and dinner like a pauper. The reasons for a healthy and nutritious breakfast for athletes are just emphasized because they need much more energy as compared to people who go to office and have a simple nine to five job. While the principles remain the same, athletes should pay more attention to this age-old tradition, of a health breakfast every morning.
Athletes who wake up early in the morning to get some warming up done can come up with a variety of excuses to skip this special meal – you may not have enough time, you may be running late or you may not be hungry, but skipping this essential meal could give way to a host of adversities.
It is important for all of us and especially athletes to fuel their body right at the start of the day. When you wake up from a good night’s rest, your body is not as charged, and you need to jump start it with a good, healthy and nutritious meal. The most important food group that you must include during breakfast is protein, make sure that you have a protein rich breakfast and include less protein in your other meals.
