Breaking The Fast

In a recent conversation with nutritionist Tom Bilella, we discussed the importance of eating breakfast. As it is important to have frequent, well balanced meals during the course of the day breakfast is THE most important. Your body hasn't had nutrients for several hours and to get your brain and body going, a breakfast chock full of protein, essential fats and substantial carbohydrates is the perfect formula.

Too often, many people eat a poor breakfast - usually consisting of a bowl of sugary cereal or grab a bagel of muffin on the run while others blow off breakfast all together - opting for a cup of a high test Frappuccino and spending 3 dollars and change for zero nutrition. I understand most of us are on the run to work, getting kids off to school, etc. but there is an answer. A much healthier, more time efficient approach would be to drink your breakfast consisting of a good whey protein powder along with some milk (rice, almond, oat, cow if you can tolerate it), essential fatty acids (flax or fish oil) and some fresh fruit. Blend it and go.

The key to being healthy and losing body fat is to eat healthy foods and there is no better way to do that then by starting your day off right with a nutritious breakfast.
