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 HAVE to start my day with breakfast.  Today I'm having sauteed spinach (4c raw) with fresh basil, a slice of whole wheat toast, and 2 eggs & 2 egg whites scrambled with herbs and broccoli.  And coffee off course!

I am horrible when it comes to eating breakfast, especially if I don't have any kids at home to give it too. I think it's the thing I have to work on most

I have just recently started making myself eat breakfast everyday. I usually have smoothies, cereal, a bagel, or eggs and toast. I am really trying to make breakfast a daily thing.

I'm too hungry in the mornings to skip breakfast. I'm working on eating healthier breakfasts though.

My breakfasts are usually on the go. Usually a cereal bar and a piece of fruit with a glass of tea.
