Protect Against Heart Disease
There is more and more evidence to suggest breakfast can significantly cut your risk of heart disease and all its associated health problems. Recently, a study following 27,000 men — some who ate breakfast, and some who didn’t — revealed that abstaining from breakfast could raise heart disease risk by 27 percent.
You don’t have to limit yourself to a piece of fruit to enjoy the results, either.
A 2007 study out of Pennington Biomedical Research Center found that women who ate eggs for breakfast lost more weight and felt more energized than those who ate a bagel for their morning meal, and despite the higher fat content in eggs, their blood cholesterol levels did not increase.
