5 Reasons You Should Stop Skipping Breakfast

We totally understand why breakfast is so often skipped. College is busy! Plus, living in a dorm room with just a microwave and a mini fridge is a bit of a challenge in itself. Breakfast should be a priority, though – especially in college. Here are five reasons why you should stop skipping breakfast, even if it’s just a quick bite!

1. You can dodge that Freshman 15.

Shouldn’t eating breakfast make you gain weight? Not exactly. Having a good breakfast actually kick starts your metabolism, making it easier for you to burn calories throughout the day. Just make sure you’re smart about your food choices!

 

2. No more dozing off in those 8 a.m. lectures.

Breakfast gives you energy, plain and simple. Those early morning classes you dread will totally be more bearable if you grab a bite to eat beforehand.

 

3. Prepping for finals? NBD.

Studies show that eating breakfast helps with memory and concentration. You probably don’t want to skip out on breakfast when you have exams you need to study for, right?

 

4. You can say goodbye to those unhealthy snacks.

Okay, we all give in to snacking on greasy potato chips and sugary sweets sometimes. Nothin’ wrong with that! But, breakfast eaters are less likely to reach for these snacks throughout the day than non-breakfast eaters.

 

5. Sick days? Not if breakfast can help it!

Breakfast provides you with the vitamins and nutrients your body needs to stay healthy. You don’t want to get sick right before that big presentation you have coming up, do you? Give your body what it needs!
