I hate eating breakfast! If you're like me you will completely get this and should keep reading, and if your not like me you should still keep reading so you know what you're doing is right!
I hate eating breakfast! You could give me a million excuses and I have probably used all of them: I'm not hungry, I ate a big dinner, I'm listening to my body, why have those calories, it makes me feel funny... Blah blah blah, I have heard them and used them but this is why we must stop!
I know you have heard it a million times but it is true- BREAKFAST IS GOOD FOR YOU!
Now here is where people get the whole thing wrong! You do not have to eat ALOT!
You just want start your metabolism for the day.... Heard that one too? Let me explain it to you...
Overnight your body does three things with the food you ate that day, it uses it, believe it or not it takes calories to dream! it repairs or builds muscle that you damaged and the rest it turns into fat!
So sadly it can't just use the extra cookies you ate before bed to start your day. It also does not immediately start burning fat. I mean how convenient would it be if your body was like hey I have all this fat, I should use that....nope
See your body is smart and it knows it takes will get more energy quicker if it eats your yummy dense muscles.
But to stop muscle atrophy there is one thing that your body likes better than that yummy muscle..
Can you guess what that is?
Food and not just any food.... food that is quick to get into your blood.
This is the one time during the day that it is ideal to eat simple carbohydrates.
Sugar can quickly be sent into your blood stream... aka feed your body!
So eating something small like fruit and other simple not processed carbs with a light protein like eggs will give you the boost of energy that you need.
Just eating a little allows your body to wake up and start to get energy... enough so it doesn't break down your muscles and has time to start the fat burning fire inside you.
So try to make it a habit, otherwise you are damaging your metabolism and nobody wants that!
On a positive not it is the best time to eat simple carbs and I don't know about you but you don't have to as me to do that twice!
