I find that when I do consultation with my clients
the one meal that is done wrong is the breakfast.
Now I won’t get into “should you skip breakfast or not” because in reality…there’s no such thing as “skipping breakfast”.
Breakfast is the first meal of the day and it literally means that you are “breaking a fast”.
So unless you are not eating for the whole day, the first meal you put into your body can be considered your breakfast regardless of what time you eat it.
I hope that makes sense.
The fact remains: Breakfast is still the most important meal
of the day.
Because it sets the tone for the foods you’ll eat the rest of
the day, the leaner you eat in your first meal the leaner your other
meals will be.
If you start your day off with junk then you’ll most likely
continue that trend for the rest of the day.
And to make it even worse: Today’s food advertising totally
messes up what society “believes” is a healthy breakfast and
what is not.
And today I’m about to clear that up.
Here is a quick list of the Top 5 WORST Breakfasts to stay away
* Pancakes with syrup, donuts, cinnamon rolls, “breakfast
danishes”: Those aren’t foods, they’re desserts.
* Bagel, toast, muffin, English muffin: giant balls of “carbs”,
i.e. chewy, crunchy sugar. Did you know that bread — even
“heart-healthy” whole-wheat bread–has the same glycemic index
* Cold cereal: like bread, it hits your bloodstream even faster
than white sugar. Yes, even Grape-Nuts and all those “healthy”,
“high-fiber” cereals that taste like ground-up twigs…adding
white sugar to your cereal actually drops the GI!
NOTE: This goes for Kashi cereal as well despite what they
claim. Kashi is just more over-processed refined carbs masquerading
as a real-meal.
* Orange juice, all fruit juices: liquid fructose. Basically a
soda with some vitamin C. Have you ever seen how many oranges
it takes to make a glass of orange juice?
* Oatmeal: a bit of incomplete protein and lots of ‘carbs’
(sugar). Do you eat plain oatmeal? Really?
So What Should You Eat For Breakfast?
The funny thing about all of those breakfast sources I listed
above is: They are all processed foods.
All you have to do is stick with your whole food sources such
as: eggs, veggies (yes veggies), chicken, fruits etc..
My go-to breakfast is an omelet made with broccoli, onions,
I know that list may have shell-shocked you a bit but it’s
my job to tell you not only get you into your best body but
also to give you the uncensored truth.
Start testing out your new breakfast using whole foods instead of
the bad ones I listed above. I’m pretty sure just by reducing
those foods in your diet you’ll see a change in the waistline
