Hello everyone,

I tried to use a title that would grab as many of you as possible. I first had "why eating breakfast is so important", but then thought that I wanted to cover more than just eating breakfast. So I'm glad you decided to take a read.

Many of us have heard that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, and I agree that it is very important. But I also hear from people that they eat breakfast and then not again until dinner, or nothing all day until dinner. Eating throughout the day is sooo important for the body. The body needs fuel. Something to run on. Now let's think about what it uses for fuel. SUGAR! And sugar comes in the form of carbohydrates. Now my last newsletter covered the differences between good and bad carbs, so if you didn't read it, then please do so if your interested. Fats and proteins make up the rest of our food. Fats can be divided into good and bad. The good ones, omega 3, 6 and 9, are used for very important chemical processes that our body need to perform. The bad ones, like saturated meat fat, serve absolutely no good purpose at all, unless you consider shortening your life a good thing. Proteins are used for the manufacture and repair of connective tissues, for example, skin and muscle.

Eating all of these types of food is extremely important, and you must get them into the body on a regular basis during the day, so that the body can do with them what it needs, like supply energy to the muscles and the brain, and repair tissue. If you do not eat, the body does not have what it needs to perform these functions, and it goes into a starvation mode. During this time, your body will literally break down it own protein for the amino acids it needs to repair muscle and other tissues, as well as for a very poor source of energy other than carbohydrates or sugar. You may be asking why it doesn't start to break down fat as a source of fuel, but the reality is that when your body goes into starvation mode, it is chemically unable to break own fat because it wants to keep the fat until it is the last thing available to allow the body to survive. When you eat, your body is chemically put into a state that allows for the burning of fat for fuel. The key it to not eat soo much at one time, and balance your carbs, protein, and good fats at each meal. And you want to eat at 4 hour intervals during the day to keep your metabolism at a maximum and keep the body able to burn fat AND carbs as a source of fuel. I can't even try to explain how many great things happen in the body when you eat good meals at regular intervals during the day. This newsletter would be 10 times longer, but I can tell you that it works. And I can't even begin to tell you how hard it is on the body to force to it run while in starvation mode. It literally eats itself to stay alive. Ever wonder why you got sick soo many times this past winter???? Hummmmm..... Do you have a better idea why now???

I find myself having to forcefully stop before I want to write for another 3 pages. If you have any questions about this topic, please reply and ask me.

Thanks for reading, and if you would like to help our office be notice by others in search of good care, please consider clicking here an offering a rating on Google. It is much appreciated.
