You must eat breakfast!
You’ll have heard the saying, “Breakfast is the most important meal of the day”. Although this may not be entirely true, it still holds value.
What you eat for breakfast sets up your entire neurotransmitter production for the day. It connects the brain to the gut and once that connection has been established, it allows for better digestion and absorption/utilisation of the rest of the day’s meals.
It also helps promote a slow rise in blood sugar levels which, in turn, will allow for more constant energy for the rest of the day; eliminating the usual peaks and troughs you find you get when breakfast is missed, or bad choices are made: e.g. cereals and fruits.
Breakfast must consist of:
*Direct carbs are NOT to be consumed at breakfast other than those found in veg.
Protein must be in every meal regardless, that’s a given. At breakfast, carbs must be replaced with fats.
The fibre content from the veg will help to stunt rapid rises in blood sugar levels and provide some bulk to the meal along with the obvious nutritional benefits.
DO NOT miss breakfast, if you train first thing in the morning and don’t have time to eat you should consume a whey shake or some BCAA’s. You can opt to train fasted if desired if you are used to this method.
