“The research about breakfast is so good if you eat the right breakfast that it is hard to find good negative articles. Add to breakfast doing several one minute strengthening exercises at the beginning of the day and a better day is guaranteed.” Bill Chesnut, MD

“One thing leads to another” is more than a catchy song from an ’80s band (okay, we’ll give it to you: Pet Shop Boys). It’s a fact of life — and health. And sometimes the connections surprise you. Case in point: a compelling benefit of breakfast. No, your morning meal does not lead to immortality or hundred-dollar bills falling from the sky (sorry!), but research suggests that if you’re trying to be more active, eating breakfast may help. In a randomized, clinical trial studying people with obesity, researchers found that those who ate breakfast were more physically active during the day than those who fasted until lunch. Earlier research found similar benefits in people of normal weight. That’s a big deal, given the marked disadvantages of being sedentary. The study didn’t track what people ate, but that matters, too, of course. (In a nutshell, skip the sweet stuff and stripped carbs, and aim for whole foods, including protein.) You’ll probably notice more spring in your step! The possibilities are endless, and staying active is one of the pillars of good health.
