Stay with me here.
Which means the first 3 months of the year are almost over. How's your body transformation -- project, resolution, promise, or whatever you're calling it going?
You know you could just start off by having a good breakfast to start getting back on track.
I don't know how it happens, but for some reason breakfast seems to be the most difficult meal to get most people to eat consistently. I've heard all the excuses from "I don't have time", to "I don't eat eggs", to "I'm really not that hungry in the morning". Trust me if you've been sleeping for 6-8 hours or more, your body is hungry -- even if you don't feel like eating.
However, if you keep that pattern up, of not eating breakfast, you encourage your body to store calories as body fat.
Because if you continue to tell your body it will be underfed the amount of calories it needs (which is what you do when you skip breakfast), it will do what it was made to do -- survive. Thus it will store calories and slow your metabolism down, so that it can conserve energy (think a slow metabolism makes it extremely difficult to lose weight).
So whether you're working to get lean and ripped for summer, or just wanted to get rid of a few pounds, breakfast is the most efficient way to do that no matter how you slice it.
Being committed to your success, I'm going to make this super easy for those of you who consistently skip breakfast for any reason. Below you'll find some easy recipes to get the right food in your stomach, and still get you to work on time.
Remember, when you eat a proper breakfast consistently you start your metabolism off right. Meaning, you send the message to your body not to store calories because you will be feeding it the nutrients it needs consistently.
I'm sure you can find at least one option below that will suit your tastes and time schedule.
Don't find an excuse. Find the solution.
