Diets recommended by Professor Yamakashi
Importance of a Healthy Breakfast: For losing weight, you should never skip any of the three meals of the day. Skipping a meal can cause a decrease in blood sugar, which can cause dizziness and loss of form.
A well made Breakfast ensures sufficient nutrients to face the day with full of energy and have no downs of glucose which negatively affects the physical and academic performance. You have to consider that the body was not powered during sleep for 8 to 10 hours. It is recommended that the child gets up with enough time for grooming and personal care, and then have breakfast quietly to avoid feeling hungry during the day.
Any person who makes a good breakfast, improve her nutritional status and performance.
Improvement of nutritional status: Taking a good breakfast helps to improve the synthesis of most of the nutrients that the body needs throughout the day. Children and adolescents who skip breakfast tend to be overweight, while those who usually eat breakfast tend to have healthy nutrition, rich in carbohydrates, fiber, vitamins and minerals, and low in fat.
Weight loose: Having the habit to distribute calories during the day, in 4 or 5 meals, helps avoid overloading the meals of the day. A proper breakfast helps to reduce the fat absorbed daily and snacking between meals, a very important factor to promote weight loss and prevent obesity.
Academic, physical and intellectual performance: People who do not eat breakfast start a number of mechanisms in the body (lower insulin and increased cortisol, catecholamine) to maintain blood glucose at an acceptable level. These hormonal changes may affect or condition the behavior of the child and have a negative impact on their physical and academic performance.
Not eating breakfast is a bad habit. A good breakfast should contain foods from different food groups of the food pyramid:
• Flour: bread, cereal, toast, biscuits. They provide slow absorbable carbohydrates that provide energy, vitamins and minerals.
• Dairy products: milk, yogurt and cheese for their protein, calcium and vitamins A, B and D content.
• Fruits: contain rapid absorbable carbohydrates, water, vitamins, minerals and fiber.
• Other: ham, rich in high quality protein.
So, the "best" breakfast must combine foods like:
• A cup of milk with sugar
• Cereals, bread slices or crackers with cheese and / or jam
• Fruits that provide vitamin C (citruses, kiwis, berries, etc.).
In total, breakfast represents between 20 and 25% of the calories consumed daily.
