It's almost impossible to burn body fat throughout the day, if you don't get breakfast right.
It's literally the meal that has the most impact on your day in terms of losing weight and having energy until it's time to relax that evening.
But, for one reason or another this is the meal that I'd say close to 99% of people struggle with and end up eating poor food choices that effect the rest of their day.
Most people just grab some type of baked good (bagel, muffin, toast, English muffin, etc.), a glass of juice, a piece of fruit, and maybe a coffee. And for those that don't opt for the processed bread-based item they typically choose cereal.
Truthfully, it doesn't matter too much which item you go with if it came from a processed grain (even "whole grains") especially when it's washed down with bottled juice. The reason for this is because the inflammatory rating (IR), glycemic index (GI) and load (GL) of your mainly carbohydrate breakfast is going to be outrageously high.
For example let's take a look at this average breakfast:
1 cup of cereal: 64 carbohydrates
1 medium apple: 25 carbohydrates
1 glass of orange juice: 33 carbohydrates
This typical breakfast delivers over 122 carbohydrates (with an averaged GI of 64) coming predominantly from sugar and fast digesting, high glycemic starches. And when you eat predominantly high GI foods at a meal you're no doubt going to spike your blood sugar levels.
This almost certainly guarantees you'll be storing all that sugar as fat, and with the surge of blood sugar comes an outpouring of insulin to pull that sugar out of your blood, which will most likely lead to a crash right around mid-morning... leaving you searching for another coffee, or processed baked good to artificially boost your energy levels again.
And so the cycle continues throughout the day...
We'll talk about how you can enjoy natural energy and fat loss throughout the day in a moment, but for now let's see why most people ... Continue
