Below is the most important part of your new lifestyle. Breakfast is too important to miss completely! Below are some recommendations to starting your day off the right way.
One myth about eating is the less you eat, the more you will lose weight. That is not entirely true. Breakfast is the most important part of your day. Just like your car, your engine needs fluids in order for it to work properly. Our metabolism is our engine for starting our bodies. It is important to begin your day off with water and food.
The American College of Sports Medicine states that it has been proven that water will jump start your metabolism which will help you burn more calories and your mind and body will be more efficient throughout the day.
The average human being in the corporate world works a long day with early mornings and there is nothing easier than to pick up a cup of coffee and eat a bagel with cream cheese.
Take the first step and exchange that bagel and cream cheese for oatmeal mixed with fruit, milk, cinnamon, or have it plain.
Your second step will be to exchange your morning coffee for tea or water. Green tea may not be as strong as coffee but the caffeine in tea lasts longer, and alertness is sustained throughout the day.
Other Breakfast Choices:
Yogurt (low in sugar)
Eggs (Preferably Egg whites)
Whole Wheat Toast
Stay away from juices that are high in sugar
