Bikini Bootcamp Challenge Day 9:The Most Important Meal of the Day

Welcome to day 9 of the Bikini Bootcamp Challenge!

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day!
A healthy breakfast is the fuel you need to start your day.
After sleeping all night and going without food, your energy reserves are low and need to be replenished.

By eating breakfast, your blood sugar rises and your metabolism is recharged. Do not fall into the trap of saving calories by skipping breakfast.

Eating a healthy breakfast daily provides:

  • Provides necessary nutrients to kick start the day

  • Regular breakfast promotes healthier body weight.

  • Daily breakfast regulates appetite, reduces snack cravings

  • Reduces chances of overeating during the day

  • Helps stabilize hormones and blood sugar levels

  • Reduces fatigue and sleepy feeling mid-morning

  • Spurt in energy levels, positive attitude.

  • Improves concentration, boosts brain power

  • Helps in weight maintenance efforts

  • Increases alertness

  • Improves overall health and well-being

The three most important things to think about when planning a healthy breakfast are:

  • Whole grains: They give you more vitamens, minerals, fiber and antioxidents. Fiber helps you to stay full throughout the morning
  • Lean protein: Engergizes and fuels your body. The best way to get lean protein is from eggs and nut butters.
  • Fruit: Eat fruit in place of drinking fruit juice. You will be getting fiber and nutrients.

I don't do breakfast. It makes me starve and pig out all day long. i eat over 2,000 calories a day when I eat breakfast (a bowl of cereal like Life, cherios, kix, eggs, pancakes or whatever basic breakfast foods) just to feel full that day. If I skip breakfast I'm right around 1,200 calories.

I rarely eat breakfast. I am usually too focused on getting the kids up and out the door so I don't take time to eat. I hope to change this once school is out and our schedule changes.

I've never been a breakfast person before, but I've definitely been doing way better now. And have been for awhile. Sometimes I forget just because I get so busy in the mornings.
