When it comes to a balanced diet, breakfast is the most important meal of the day. If you are trying to lose or maintain weight here are some key tips you can do to maximize your breakfast’s benefits.
First thing in the morning
Recent studies have shown that eating breakfast 20 minutes after waking up boosts your metabolism for the whole day. Also can keep you feeling full throughout the whole day.
High fiber and fats
Pack your breakfasts with fiber heavy foods and fats for longer energy storage. Ever feel mid day crashes and you don’t know why? Could be because your breakfast wasn’t optimal. If you have lots of carbs for breakfast, once it breaks down it turns into sugar which will cause a sugar crash. Excellent breakfast would be: 2 eggs, 1 avocado, 1/2 cup of oat meal.
Hydration is key
If you wake up grab a coffee and rush to work chances are you experience afternoon migraines. This is because your body is dehydrated from the over-night fast known as sleep. Make sure you have 2 tall glasses of water with your breakfast and stay re-hydrated.
