Doctor Nguyen Trong Hung, Head of Adult Nutrition Consulting Clinic, National Institute of Nutrition, said that in many people's thoughts, breakfast is just a side meal, so it is often missed. This has a serious effect on the body.

In principle, after finishing dinner, overnight to 6 o'clock the next morning is about 10-12 hours of "empty" stomach, not to mention preparing energy for a new working day. Therefore, after this time the body needs additional energy. "Breakfast is essential", the doctor emphasized.

Many studies show that people who eat breakfast tend to be healthier, less likely to be overweight, obese and less likely to develop some chronic diseases than people who do not have this habit.

Doctor analyzed, not eating breakfast makes your body have no source of energy. The body must mobilize a quantity of sugar and protein to be stored and ready for all activities, making the surface of the skin dry, losing nutrition. Therefore, wrinkles may appear in the eyes and face, increasing the aging process in breakfast fasters.

Skipping breakfast will cause feelings of hunger, drop in blood pressure, and people with hangover, long-term will cause serious damage to the digestive system such as stomach pain. Stomach always contracts, gastric juice secretes but nothing to digest, over time will cause stomach ulcers, leading to a decline in the body's immune system. Hunger also makes you unable to concentrate, affecting work performance.

Many studies show that skipping meals can affect the body's circadian rhythm. The interrupted circadian rhythm leads to diabetes and increased blood pressure, increasing the risk of cardiovascular disease.

In addition, skipping breakfast will lead to a situation where noon and night will eat more to replenish energy. Meanwhile, at night, not much activity, food will not be able to fully digest, it makes your body heat increasing, fat accumulation more and more. This is the cause of overweight - obesity.

The doctor said, noodles, pho, sticky rice, bread ... are the dishes to eat in the morning to recharge. A package of sticky rice contains protein (protein), fat (lipid), and contains quite a lot of energy from starch (glucide). Bun has more nutrients, can provide more protein. You can eat fish vermicelli, chicken vermicelli, assorted pho, meat sticky rice, sticky rice ... to supplement energy, choose for breakfast. In general, in terms of quality, eating a bowl of noodles and pho will be more balanced than eating a pack of sticky rice.
