Starting off the day with a healthy breakfast is essential to maintaining a healthy lifestyle. It jump starts your metabolism, and helps you avoid overeating for the rest of the day.
Having a breakfast with an adequate amount of protein is very important for developing and maintaining lean muscle. If we are not getting enough protein throughout the day, muscle maintenance is not at the maximal level. Protein provides the amino acids your brain needs to function at its optimal level.
FAT FIGHTING BREAKFAST COMBOS
Combine lean protein and complex carbs for a power packed meal. The combination of complex carb + lean protein in our bodies actually slows the carb to fat conversion process, meaning we use more of what we’re eating for fuel, instead of turning it into fat. This combination also keeps blood sugar levels steady and keeps us feeling full until our next meal/snack.
Eggs are one of the best sources of lean protein. There is a reason why they are a breakfast staple in many different countries. Eggs are one of the best sources protein you can eat because for the protein content they are relatively low calorie.
