Fat Burning Breakfast Smoothie Recipe
We’ve all heard the nutrition advice that we shouldn’t skip breakfast because it’s the most important meal of the day. But what that advice fails to tell us is that it’s WHAT we eat for breakfast that is really the important part.
The reason that’s so important is that what you eat for breakfast sets the tone for how your body runs and feels…. for the entire day!
Health Benefits of a High Protein Breakfast
Just by eating a high protein breakfast (at least 25 grams of protein, ideally 35-40 grams), you’ll have lower sugar cravings, increased energy and focus, stable blood sugar, and a boosted metabolism (which helps you lose fat) that extends throughout the entire day. (source, source, source).
But when you eat a breakfast high in carbohydrates, you’ll very likely feel hungry two hours later, crave carbs and sugar all day, stress your metabolism (which ramps up fat storage signals), have roller coaster blood sugar, and likely be a bit moody, irritable…plus, you’ll have more trouble focusing.
Sound familiar at all? If so, you aren’t alone! I used to eat a bagel and/or cereal every morning and experienced these unpleasant symptoms every day. What a night and day difference eating a high protein breakfast made for me!
