I had a client cancel this morning so I decided to do my blog post with my new found time. I was sitting in front of my laptop struggling to come up with a catchy title for this. I was thinking (yet again) – about stressing the importance of breakfast to you.
So as I sat there trying to be clever I mumbled out loud, “Breakfast is bleh.”
And there you have it! That’s exactly how I came up with this title. But I beg you! DO NOT take this message lightly.
You see, I know you’ve heard it a million times before...
“You have to eat breakfast.”
“Don’t skip breakfast.”
“Breakfast is the most important meal of the day.” etc.
And I know it’s not the sexiest message in the world, but do you have any idea how many people I meet as a fitness professional that DO NOT eat breakfast? A lot. And do you have any idea how many of those people that don’t eat breakfast are overweight? Pretty much all of them.
Look, I’m not crazy. I know sometimes it’s hard to make the time in the morning to eat breakfast. And I know many of you just aren’t all that hungry right after you wake up.
So let’s look at this another way. You get up each morning and go to work every day because you want a roof over your head and food on the table, right? Day after day after day you go to work because you want the RESULT of that effort.
Well, IF you want to burn fat, feel better and have more energy you WILL eat breakfast every morning. Period. End of discussion.
Some things are boring. Some things just have to be done to get the result you want. For those of you that want to burn fat all day long, breakfast is just one of those things.
Enjoy your weekend
PS – Prograde Lean is a delicious chocolate meal replacement shake that I recommend to all my clients. It’s the perfect solution on those days where breakfast seems impossible.
