Eating breakfast has a positive effect on brain chemicals (chemicals that allow brain functions) that regulate food intake. The amount of dopamine, one of these chemicals, increases in individuals who skip breakfast. Increasing dopamine levels cause individuals to consume excessive food and naturally leads to weight gain. Based on this observation, the effect of brain chemicals on the desire to eat is not discussed in the treatment of obesity. According to the result of a study conducted on 19 years old young women in America; Especially eating a protein-rich breakfast caused a decrease in chemicals (such as dopamine) in teenagers’ brains that cause cravings, and eating a protein-rich breakfast for the rest of the day prevented overeating. In addition, it has been observed that the appetite for sweet and fatty foods decreased dramatically in individuals who eat a protein-rich breakfast. According to this study, it was determined that individuals who skip breakfast have a desire to eat more and are overweight.
Tomatoes, cucumbers, peppers and greens, along with an omelet with curd cheese and turkey smoked, can be an example for a correct breakfast.
