Breakfast is absolutely the most important meal of the day. You've been sleeping and repairing your body all night and you need to eat some grub so your metabolism can start working and you can prepare yourself to have a productive and energetic day.
One of the best statements I've heard regarding how we should eat in order to achieve our ideal weight is to eat breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince and dinner like a pauper.
Unfortunately for most, breakfast is coffee or skipped all together because time is limited, lunch is unhealthy and eaten at a desk because of professional pressures and dinner becomes the biggest meal of the day.
This can wreak havoc on your metabolism, create more insulin resistance and keep those stubborn areas of fat right where you don't want them.
Below are 3 breakfasts that will reeve your metabolism, keep you full and set you up for a day of energy and fat burning.
Rule number 1: EAT BREAKFAST within 30 minutes of waking up.
Yes we know there are a million things that distract you from this, so get up a few minutes earlier if necessary in order to eat breakfast. How can you possibly be your best you and take care of everyone else if you are not making time to eat breakfast?
Breakfast number 1:
Grapefruit and poached eggs:
Don't freak out, I'm not bringing back the grapefruit diet (silly if I say so myself). However grapefruit, when paired with eggs is a killer breakfast and has been shown to help individuals drop unwanted pounds.
Eggs of course have healthy fat and protein and will help keep you full so you avoid office temptations and unhealthy snacking that sabotages your waistline (aA 2010 study in the journal Nutrition Research proved this).
Breakfast number 2:
Chicken sausage, avocado and eggs:
Can you tell I'm a fan of protein and healthy fat? So many people fear fat, but the truth is you have to eat fat to burn fat. Of course not all fat is created equally so you need to pick it wisely.
This breakfast gives you the perfect opportunity to get your metabolism going and stay satiated until it's time for lunch.
Breakfast number 3:
Steel cut oats, nuts and ground turkey:
I know this sounds like a little bit of a mismatched breakfast combination, but it's a fantastic way to get you up and energized for a productive day. The fat and protein in the nuts will slow down the metabolism of the steel cut oats so your insulin levels don't spike and you are not left feeling drained later.
If none of these appeal to you, that's ok, just make sure you eat fat and protein for breakfast and you don't skip it!
