How to Eat Breakfast to Power Start Your Day


Remember the old adage “Breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince and dine like a pauper”?

Our digestion has a rhythm and like our bodies, our digestive system is most active in the morning.

Unfortunately, we don’t have the same digestive capacity for 24 hours. In the morning, you can
basically digest anything at all. So breakfast is the time for your biggest meal and the time to
eat the hardest to digest foods, like raw. If you want to lose weight or improve your health, you
must pay attention to your digestive systems rhythms and eat accordingly.

Stop thinking of breakfast as a time to just “throw” something in your mouth before you jet off to
work. This is the meal you want to take time to eat, even if it means getting up a little earlier.

When you skip breakfast, you lose its stimulating benefits on your metabolic rate. You also
become more likely to eat unbalanced meals, more calories and larger amounts of saturated
fats throughout the day. Plenty of research shows that those of us who skip breakfast are
actually heavier.

Missing out on a healthy morning meal also increases stress hormones.

Your food mantra....
Breakfast like a King
Lunch like a Prince
Dinner like a Pauper

Cherish your food.
