Having breakfast fastens the metabolic activities of the body and gets you going for the day.
People who have their morning breakfast every day turn out to be healthier than those who choose to skip it. A healthy breakfast strengthens the immune system and helps to flush out the toxins from the body.
It provides the essential nutrients needed by the body

So, have a healthy breakfast because it will expedite the process of burning the calories and keeping hunger in check.
