The word Breakfast consists of two words- Break and Fast, means, to break the fast of several hours. Breakfast is known as the very 1st meal of the day that should be healthy enough. It should be planned well like any other meal of the day. If the first meal is the heavy one, then it should be followed by a light lunch. And if you are taking a light morning meal, then you can opt for heavy lunch. What if we skip the morning meal, we are making a call to several health problems to attack us.

Menstrual Irregularities

Girls are more worried about making their belly flat. Skipping the very first meal seems to be a good option. But there are so many other ways to get a flat belly, so why skip breakfast.
