Breakfast is the most commonly skipped meal. Ironically, it is the most important meal to eat. So why should you do your best not to skip breakfast during the hustle of your morning routine?
For starters, your body goes into a state of hibernation when sleeping, and eating literally “breaks” that “fast”. It kick starts your metabolism into high gear, gives you energy to get through the next few hours, and makes you healthier in general. It’s one of the most effective pieces to weight loss programs.
Breakfast should keep you lean — think about 25-30% of your daily calories. These calories should be spread out to be about 50% carbohydrates, 25% (healthy) fats, and 25% protein. The carbohydrates provide quick energy used to both replenish your depleted stores and move you through the day. Healthy fats such as avocado and nuts digest slowly to prevent sudden hanger pangs. Protein keeps your body satiated (full) and allows your body’s hormones to return to normal levels.
