Cardiovascular diseases, also acronymic as CDVs is an umbrella name in reference to a number of heart related diseases such as blood vessel diseases, heart defects and coronary artery disease. However, in a clinical setting, cardiovascular disease are categorised as diseases that leads to the narrowing and blockage of blood vessels. Blockage and narrowing of blood vessels results in heart attacks, angina and stroke ( Albawardi et al., 35). The main cause of the cardiovascular diseases is the fattening of the blood vessels, leading to inadequate pumping of blood by the heart muscles to other parts of the body. This is attributable to the high Body Metabolic index and obesity in most persons. Lifestyle, a part from eating too much, is a major factor that has contributed to the high rates of CVDs. The lifestyle, that is most adopted by some individuals, such as skipping breakfast increases their chances of cardiovascular diseases and BMI levels. Skipping breakfast desynchronizes diurnal human behaviour, causes inactivity and unhealthy eating patterns, which results in cardiovascular diseases and high BMI rates. The world health organization has ranked cardiovascular diseases as the leading causes of death in the world. According to the WHO, in 2016 alone, an estimated 17.9 million people died from cardiovascular diseases, which was noted to represent about 31% of global
deaths ("Cardiovascular Diseases (Cvds)") . In all of the number of deaths, the organization disclosed that 85% of them are associated with stroke and heart attack. The deaths are evenly distributed across the world ("Cardiovascular Diseases (Cvds)") . Taking breakfast can be beneficial in the process of curbing the condition from worsening. Breakfast is the first meal, either beverage or any food taken after rising from night’s sleep. It is traditionally taken before starting the daily routine and tasks. This practice has been associated by a number of studies with a reduced chance of getting cardiovascular diseases. In human beings, light cycle stimulates wakefulness and feeding. Darkness on the other hand initiates sleeping and abstaining from food intake. A misalignment in this diurnal human beings behaviour desynchronizes peripheral and central regulation of metabolism resulting in metabolic disorders and obesity ( Jakubowicz, Daniela, et al. 1576). Therefore, breakfast helps in kick-starting body metabolism and helps in speeding up the brain and muscle functions. When a person wakes up in the morning, the brain and muscles are relaxed that they do not actively perform their functions. The blood sugar that is sourced for energy to propel the brain and muscle functions is usually very low in the blood. Thus, the morning
