Whether you are a working woman or a stay-home mother, you will always have reasons (if not excuses) to skip breakfast due to your busy schedule. To make it worse, some women claim they do so because they are not hungry enough and prefer to double the portion of their meals later on in the day to compensate the food intake. Whereas, eating breakfast really helps with memory as it can increase your concentration level and ensure your body that you get proper nutrients for the rest of the day, according to a study. Even if you are on a healthy diet for health reasons or to balance the amount of body fat and muscles, breakfast can prompt you to be physically active, thus would increase your exercise levels to help you make some progress on your healthy diet.
