Are you a breakfast eater? It is such an important meal! It sets you up for success for the rest of the day. I have always been a breakfast eater, so for me it is easy to get up and eat. You should eat within an hour of waking, after drinking a large glass of ice water, this gets your metabolism started for the day. Your breakfast should always include protein, a complex carb (i.e. oatmeal) and some fruit or veggies (toss them in your omelet). You are the most insulin sensitive in the morning so in order to stave off your insulin response (fat storing) you need to have protein. If you are grabbing a bagel and coffee loaded with sugar you are turning off your fat burning response and turning on your fat storing response, continued for a long period of time results in serious health problems and fat gain, not exactly what you want. It really is the most important meal. What is your favorite healthy breakfast?
