Do Not Underestimate The Importance of Breakfast!
Why it's the most important meal.
Figuring out what kinds of foods to eat to help you lose fat or gain muscle can be difficult enough, what time to eat those foods should not be. The easiest way to gain muscle and lose fat is to eat breakfast. Obviously breakfast is meant to do exactly that break the fast.
Breaking The Fast
The involuntary fast that we go through while we are sleeping needs to be stopped so that our metabolism becomes revved up as early as possible. The National Weight Control Registry, a group that tracks the progress of people who have lost 30 lbs. or more and kept it off for over a year, reports that 78% of it’s members eat breakfast everyday and at least 90% eat breakfast 5 days a week. Eating a protein based breakfast also helps to start building muscle first thing in the morning after your muscle tissue has had a chance to rest and recover. There is really no downside to eating breakfast, weight loss, muscle gain and the needed energy to get you through the day.
If you are already eating breakfast than my hat goes off to you. You are already enjoying the benefits of starting the day off on the right path. Hopefully you are not doing the fast food drive through. Steel cut Oatmeal, Turkey Bacon, Egg Whites or an early morning Protein Shake are just a few examples of what you should start your day off with.
