We all know the saying “breakfast is the most important meal of the day”
why is this?
For children, a good breakfast before school makes them more focused, awake, think clearly, and preform better on tests. This is because when you are sleeping you are fasting (not eating for a long period of time) and in the morning your brain needs fuel (from glucose- aka. food). Without food your brain will not work to it’s full potential.
If this works for kids, it must be quite similar for all ages… why not eat it so you can be at your peak performance level at work?
Maybe, you don’t need to use your brain much.. maybe you have a job like me, modeling .. so let’s look at it from a diet perspective.
When you eat, your body has to work to digest the food, this will start your metabolism and burn calories. Therefore, eating smaller meals throughout the day will cause your body to work more and burn more calories than eating a few big meals. In order to get in all these meals, start early at breakfast! Then you will also have a better chance at not giving into afternoon unhealthy cravings, or really stuffing yourself at lunch because you’re starving. Studies even show that people who skip breakfast have a higher risk of becoming obese.

After my supplements, I always start off my day with a big bowl of fresh fruit and maybe some non-fat yogurt or healthy cereal. If I have more time I really like making egg white omelettes (you remove the egg yolk to get rid of the fat/cholesterol) with lots of veggies and a bit of cheese.
