Are Fruits Enough For A Breakfast?

Web Desk(March 27, 2018): The ancient theory of surviving only on fruits has been popular for a while now. Fruits are packed with the essential vitamins, minerals, fibers, and carbohydrates, but are they so healthy that they can replace the most important meal of the day? Well, science believes otherwise.

LOW BLOOD SUGAR LEVELS:A perfect breakfast should be an ideal combination of carbs, proteins, fiber, fats, vitamins, and minerals. Since your breakfast is meant to break your 7-8 hour of fasting post a good night’s sleep, the first meal of the day should be packed with the above nutrients to fuel your body for the rest of the day. If you only have fruits for breakfast every morning, your blood sugar levels can drop down marginally since the glucose your body gets from carbs will be missing.

LEADS TO WEIGHT GAIN: Contrary to popular belief, eating only fruits can actually increase your weight. This is because your body will not get the required nutrition at the beginning of the day. So, you may binge on heavier meals during day and night time.

DULLER SKIN: Fruits do help in bringing about natural glow to your skin but this does not happen when you replace a meal with them. Beginning your day with a fruit is ideal but it should be followed by a nutrient-packed breakfast.

YOU FEEL HUNGRY ALL THE TIME: If your breakfast is incomplete, you are bound to feel hungry through the day. Feeling hungry is not a bad thing but if it turns perpetual in nature and rings in at odd times, it can.

LESS ENERGY: A consequence of all the above is that there will be a dip in your energy levels. Your breakfast sets your energy for the rest of the day and if you depend on only-fruits, it may cause a slower metabolism.
