Read the text and choose the correct answer.
One in ten people do not eat a proper breakfast - but it's the day's most important meal. In fact, most people do not eat breakfast at all, and that is their first mistake of the day. Ideally, it would help if you ate 25% of the day's calories so that you will be at your best physically and mentally right through to lunchtime.
When you get up in the morning, it may be eight to twelve hours since your last meal, and your blood sugar may be very low. Your brain needs sugar - that's why starting the day with breakfast is so important. No breakfast means that schoolchildren do worse at school, more drivers have accidents, and people at work do not perform as well. And … people who eat breakfast are happier than people who don't.
For an active day, you need protein: brain and energy food. If you want to make yourself feel really good, have scrambled eggs and smoked salmon. Scramble two eggs. Before they are ready, add two dessert spoons of chopped smoked salmon. Serve with lots of black pepper and some brown toast. Start with orange juice or fresh kiwi fruit for vitamin C, and you'll be able to do anything.
To start calm, peaceful, and happy, you need carbohydrates. Have a large bowl of freshly made porridge. Add some cinnamon, a relaxing spice, honey, and a dessert spoonful of cream. It will give you slow energy, lots of vitamin B, healthy calories, and almost no fat.
Or be traditional!
Eat the great British breakfast - but not the traditional fried breakfast full of fat and calories. Try the healthy version. It tastes as good but has a quarter the fat and half the calories. Cook a tomato and some mushrooms quickly in boiling water. Cut the fat off the bacon. Dry fry sausage and bacon without fat. Use toast instead of fried bread. And you have a fantastic and healthy start to the day.

What of the following result is NOT mentioned in paragraph 2?
What kind of breakfast helps people stay calm?
A healthier version of traditional breakfast includes ____________.
