You Are What You Eat: How Breakfast Determines Productivity

You Are What You Eat: How Breakfast Determines Productivity

You’ve heard the schpeel before: Breakfast is important.

But you might be surprised to learn just why it’s so important.

The folks at Fast Company recently unveiled findings published in Frontiers of Human Neuroscience, which explains that what and when you eat dictates your behavior for the rest of the day. Look below to learn some of the specifics on why your first meal is also the most important one:

The Transitive Property of Breakfast

Research revealed that schools who served breakfast to their students generally got better test scores. If this applies to high school students, then it could also amplify productivity in the workplace. Serving employees those morning bagels might just turn your business into a well-oiled machine.

We Hope You Like Rice

Researchers compared the brains of bread breakfast eaters with rice breakfast eaters. They found that those who eat rice with their morning meal had markedly higher levels of grey matter, which is linked to higher IQs.

Stay Away From Carbs

Researchers also compared the ratio of proteins to carbohydrates in breakfasts. They discovered that people who consumed more protein, rather than carbs, generally had enhanced cognitive performance. Moral of the story? Load up on eggs, dairy, and nuts before reaching for the bagels and cereal.
