Breakfast - Makes You or Breaks You
That first meal really is the most important meal of the day.
What you eat / drink first thing at the start of your day will create the body's environment and response to many things for the rest of the day.
Most of you reading this are interested in fat / weight loss and high performance.
Start your day with a breakfast of animal meats, green vegetables, garlic / onion, healthy fats and good dose of morning supplements. Do this for 2 weeks straight and feel the difference. See the difference!
My current favorite:
Extra lean ground beef or bison
Spinach or Swiss Chard
Sea Salt and Bragg's non-fermented soy liquid seasoning
You may feel worse before you feel better if you are used to no breakfast, little breakfast or a toxic breakfast (commercial breakfast foods such as breads, cereals, coffee, juice...), but you WILL feel better in anywhere from 1 day to a week.
Start with a BASE supplement protocol:
Quality multivitamin such as New Chapter, Progressive or AOR
Green food supplement (1/2 scoop to start) such as Progressive Greens or Greens +
Glutamine (start with 1 tsp and work up to 1 tbsp)
Acetyl L Carnatine (500 to 1000 mg) or Green Tea Extract (2 capsules) for the right kind of energy boost
And do yourself an extra favour and either replace morning coffee with green tea or move that coffee to just a bit later in the morning such as after breakfast (1 hour after).
Starting your day on coffee means starting your adrenals into chronic overdrive which we need no additional help with in our overstressed lifestyle. Not to mention it's highly acidic. The green tea and Greens+ will put you in an alkaline environment where health will flourish rather than disease.
