Who's your neighbor?

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

There is no such thing as a diet; there are healthy habits that need to be adapted into your lifestyle. I am here to guide you every week to help you achieve your fitness goals. My name is Rob DiDonato CEO/Founder of Executive Fitness; I have a Bachelor’s Degree in Exercise and Sports Science with a specialization in Strength and Conditioning. My experiences with working with athletes from the University of Miami, Florida International University, being the Assistant Strength and Conditioning Coach at Miami-Dade College, along with continuing to work with personal clients in the downtown, Brickell area has given me the knowledge to help anyone achieve their fitness goals.
Please feel free to contact me with any questions you may have.

In Good Health,


Rob DiDonato

Great post! Breakfast is always something I struggle with in the mornings and it is definitely the most important meal of the day.

Ditto. I can attest to the fact that when I have a bottle of water and a cup of oatmeal in the morning my day is more productive. I think clearer and my food intake throughout the day is balanced. I just can't seem to give up on the coffee. I will try the green tea instead. Next week. ; )

Thank you Rob for this blog. I've been really trying to get into this fitness thing latley and this blog just reinforces what I have already noticed within myself. Getting up 10 minutes earlier and eating a healthy breakfast makes all the difference throughout the entire day.

Sounds like best way to start mornings. But can somebody advise how to fight coffee addiction?:)

No problem everyone. I will be having weekly fitness blog postings discussing various topics that will help you in and out of the gym.
