GT Get Fit Tip: Break the Fast (Breakfast)

Breakfast – break / fast

Essentially the word breakfast means break the fast from a night or about 8hrs of not eating and drinking.

If you have more fat stored on your body than you want and you skip breakfast regularly, read this:

Eating supper at 7pm and not eating lunch till 12pm is 17hrs WITHOUT food!!  That’s way to long to force your body without nutrition, a body that is malnourished will be starved.  When your body goes into starvation mode it will gear up to store body fat so anything you eat your body works hard to convert it to fat and stored somewhere (maybe your abs, hips, or thighs) for later use.

If you are trying to lose body fat and don’t break the fast from night, then you’re not getting the metabolism going for the day and you’re not going to burn as many calories as you need to make a difference.  You have to have energy or nutrition to burn fat and here is a list of 100 foods that add energy and productivity to your day.

I know you will find something you like, if not send me yours and I will add it to my list.

    Great post. This is something I’ve really struggled and have been thinking/blogging about lately. I’ve been eating the wrong stuff for breakfast, not enough or altogether skipping it. I think it has more to do with trying to eat the right stuff and enough of it while on the move in the morning or trying to eat first thing at the office.
