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?
From my experience I have found that eating a breakfast that is high in protein and low in carbohydrate works best for those wanting to lose body fat. A protein breakfast will create a slow rise in your blood sugar levels which is vitally important when trying to lose body fat. I have also found first hand and also through my clients that it helped with food cravings during the day and made it easier to stick to a nutrition plan.
Next time you wake up make sure you have time to eat breakfast but be sure to skip cereals and bread in favour of lean meat, eggs, fish or even a low carbohydrate protein shake.
