The Importance of Eating Lunch

I have seen a lot of people forgo their lunch whether they are college students rushing to classes, people trying to lose weight, or employees trying to get through piles of paperwork (only to receive even more of them). However, this is a bad habit to develop.

Lunch is an important meal of a day.

- Food is what gives you energy. Lunch raises your blood sugar level in the middle of the day, making you be able to focus for the rest of the afternoon.

- It has been proven that people who don’t eat lunch tend to gain more weight because they overeat during dinner time to compensate for lunch.

- You can make friends with people while having lunch together.

- For kids, lunch is even more important because this is when they get their vitamins and nutrients for the day. If they don’t get the supplements their bodies need, their mental and physical developments could suffer.

In a world where everything is getting more and more fast-paced, people forget to take breaks, but breaks are not a waste of time. They are essential for one’s productivity and health.
