Time for a little breakfast myth busting!
Truth or Myth: Breakfast is the most important meal
Truth. Remember being told that breakfast is the most important meal of the day? Well, that is no wives’ tale. What you eat for breakfast tells your body what to expect for the remainder of the day. Piling on sugary cereals, carb-laden bagels or high-sodium fast-food for breakfast can cause your body to look for at LEAST that same amount of sugar allllll dayyyy longggg! WHAT?! YES! So be careful little mouths what you eat and make healthful, informed choices!
Truth or Myth: Skipping breakfast helps you burn fat longer
Myth. A common misconception is to skip breakfast. Your body is going through a fast while you sleep and some people want to continue that fast, but your body is actually burning through nutrients and “eating” those amazing muscles you’ve been building! Bust the fear that eating breakfast will dampen your fat-blasting efforts!
My general rules is “Protein + Complex Carb”, so think eggs+english muffin or greek yogurt with berries and shredded wheat or cottage cheese and rye bread or protein shake and oatmeal or protein bar and sweet potato hash brown sticks (sweet potato hash brown sticks, you say? Yep! Recipe below and on http://www.faithkeith.com)
