It’s fair to say that many ladies, especially ladies who are new to training, don’t feel comfortable about going to a unisex gym. This can be for a variety of reasons. Maybe they are embarrassed about how they look. Maybe they think that the ‘fit looking’ people on the treadmill are looking at them. Maybe they don’t want to be in a gym which is predominantly full of men. Maybe they have had bad experiences with instructors or Personal Trainers in the past. These reasons, plus many more, are enough to put so many ladies off getting fit, meaning they then revert to the comfort of what they know, which often means little or no exercise, comfort eating and negative feelings towards their bodies.
We have all heard how eating breakfast is the most important meal of the day. There is now more research than ever showing how important breakfast is in making us healthier. We now know that those who skip breakfast are more likely to have a body mass index higher than those who don’t. Breakfast eaters also have a lower risk of diabetes and insulin resistance. Some really interesting research has come out recently that shows breakfast eaters will be less likely to smoke and drink alcohol, develop and eating disorder and also have a lower chance of depression.
We can obviously see how important breakfast is to our health and well being. But what to eat?
