BREAKFAST! 5 Common Mistakes

We know breakfast is an important meal, but are you making the most out of it?  Here are 5 common mistakes that are easy to make!

1) Not enough PROTEIN – protein builds muscle and revs metabolism

2) Not enough GOOD FAT – great for your heart and helps to burn fat

3) Not enough FIBER – controls blood sugar, fills us up, clears arteries

4) Too many simple carbohydrates – causes energy crashes

5) Typical breakfast: cereal/oatmeal, toast, fruit, juice (NOTHING BUT CARBS!)

 

Eating a high-carbohydrate breakfast will limit fat-burning during exercise and also create a sugar roller-coaster that will leave you tired and hungry soon after.  Protein, Good-Fats and Complex Carbs will provide you with long-lasting energy and allow you to burn fat during your workout.
