Health Notes

For a Healthy Heart, Don't Skip Breakfast!

For a Healthy Heart, Don't Skip Breakfast!
For a Healthy Heart, Don?t Skip Breakfast!: Main Image
Results showed that people who skipped breakfast had a larger waist size and higher cholesterol
Prior research suggests that breakfast eaters may be healthier than people who skip breakfast, and now a study in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition suggests a nutritious breakfast may be especially good for your heart. Specifically, the recent study shows that regular breakfast eaters may reduce risk factors linked to heart disease.

Breakfast eaters reduce heart disease risk factors

While prior research has shown that skipping breakfast may lower a person's energy level and increase the risk of weight gain, less is known about the effects of skipping breakfast on other body organs and functions.

In this study, 2,184 participants, 9 to 15 years old, initially filled out a questionnaire about diet and physical activity and stated whether they usually ate breakfast before school or not. Twenty years later, one third of the original participants filled out a meal frequency questionnaire, had their waist size measured, and had blood levels of triglycerides, total and LDL ("bad") cholesterol, and fasting insulin (insulin levels after no food has been eaten overnight) checked. Participants were then classified into four groups:

  • skipped breakfast in neither childhood nor adulthood,
  • skipped breakfast only in childhood,
  • skipped breakfast only in adulthood, or
  • skipped breakfast in both childhood and adulthood.

Results showed that people who skipped breakfast in both childhood and adulthood had a larger waist size and total cholesterol and LDL cholesterol levels compared with people who ate breakfast in both childhood and adulthood. They also had higher fasting insulin levels, which indicates they have insulin resistance, a risk factor for diabetes and heart disease.

Breakfast skippers also tended to be single, have a lower education level, and were more likely to smoke, watch TV, get less physical activity, and have a less healthy diet compared with breakfast eaters.

The authors comment, "Skipping breakfast was associated with a larger waist circumference, cardiometabolic risk factors, poorer diet quality, and unhealthy lifestyle behaviors." They add that promoting the benefits of eating breakfast may be an important public health message.

More reasons to be a breakfast eater

There are many good reasons to eat breakfast, and prior research has shown that compared with breakfast skippers, breakfast eaters tend to have:

  • Better habits. People who eat breakfast tend to have healthier diets and get more physical activity.
  • A more nutritious diet. Breakfast eaters tend to eat less daily fat and cholesterol and more fiber, vitamins, and minerals.
  • A healthier weight. Some studies suggest that breakfast eaters have a lower weight compared with breakfast skippers.

    Comments about GNC Total Lean™ Breakfast Squares - Strawberries & Cream:

    They are small but dense, making you chew quite a bit and adding to satiation. I like to have a cup of coffee with the breakfast square. It's also great to eat on the run. I work out in the morning and this way I have the nutrients I need without having a full stomach. It keeps me satisfied until lunch. I'd say it's a win/win.

      Taste better than I thought it would. The bars are very soft and chewy, a little too soft for my liking, felt a bit like mush. Compared to their small size they are quite filling.

            Even after warming them up in the microwave, like users on the website suggest, they are the nastiest and hardest bars to actually chew and swallow!! It gets stuck to the roof of your mouth and it seems like your chewing on it forever. Sent it back and will NOT buy them again! Very disappointed in most of the products that I did purchase!!!

                      I was very suprised at how good they taste and more importantly how filling they are for their size. I use these as a mid morning snack mostly and find that I am far less hungry at lunch and there for keep my portions at lunch far more under control.
