Your mother always told you to “eat your breakfast”, it’s the most important meal of the day!” Well, your Mom was right… again
Just think of the word Break-Fast for a minute. You are breaking the fast of going all night without eating and get this… eating breakfast is a daily habit for the people who belong to The National Weight Control Registry. These people have maintained a 30-pound (or more) weight loss for at least a year, and some as long as six years.
If you skip breakfast you end up replacing calories during the day with mindless nibbling, bingeing at lunch and dinner, and you are setting yourself up for failure from the start.
Stay away from white breads and bagels if you want to avoid the mid-morning carb coma and reach for some perfect protein… the egg.
The egg is a complete protein food because egg protein has all nine of the essential amino acids (as well as all nine of the non-essential amino acids). Egg protein is second only to mother’s milk for human nutrition.
And, despite what Joe bodybuilder at your gym might tell you, eat the WHOLE egg. It contains half the protein and all the essential fats, vitamins and minerals
The omega 3 enriched eggs are a better choice for the healthy fats and free range eggs from your local farmers market is even better again as they are of much higher nutritional quality than eggs from confinement chickens..
Starting off the day with a good source of protein and healthy fat will help you build fat burning muscle, give you sustained energy and keep you full longer.
Now get cracking!
