The Most Important Meal of the Day

You must eat something within 30 minutes of waking to have a metabolism that burns calories

Early morning can be a busy time. There are many priorities to prepare for the day. Your health is one of your top priorities. You accomplish more when you feel good and healthy. So slow down and eat breakfast. Take time for it. Its important.

The good news is you do not have to eat a lot. Even 150 calories works. Breakfast is a good time for fruit. Fruit contains fructose, which is much like corn syrup. It goes to fat faster than most calories if eaten at the wrong time. However, fruit contains many nutrients that we need. So when to eat fruit?

After 6 to 8 hours of sleep the stored calories (glycogen) in our bodies have been depleted. If you eat fruit in the morning, preferably within 30 minutes of waking, your body will burn those calories and give you the energy and nutrition you need. Another good time to eat fruit is within 30 minutes of exercise. The exercise will burn those calories.

Eggs are good food. Ignore the concerns about egg yolk and cholesterol. The egg yolk contains healthy nutrients. It provides better nutrition if not over cooked, that is its best nutrition comes as an egg cooked where the yellow is a little runny. Boiled eggs are OK for those in a big hurry every morning. For example a boiled egg and a banana.

Other good choices would be fruit with a high quality protein bar. Oatmeal is OK, but I believe 40% of the population is gluten sensitive and become sick in some way by eating gluten foods. And oatmeal is high in gluten.

Also drink a glass of water within 15 minutes of waking.

Good luck changing your morning habit and enjoy your day!
