Why I Kissed Sugar + Carbs for Breakfast Goodbye
By: Leeza Kuznetsova
We all know breakfast is the most important meal of the day, right? But what if all those years of eating Eggo waffles, cereal, oatmeal and fruits for breakfast — not to mention a tall glass of orange juice has only been doing more harm than good? What if the thing that’s actually more important than eating breakfast is what you’re eating and when you’re eating it?
According to celeb nutritionist and author of Body Love, Kelly Leveque, starting our day off with sugar and/or carbs is precisely THE problem. In fact, it’s the very thing that forces our cravings, weight, and blood sugar levels to spiral out of control.
The goods new? You can steer clear of this crazy little food trap if you trade in your breakfast bars for a healthy mix of protein, fat, fiber & greens instead. And you might just come across some of the ah-mazing benefits I’ve included below:
Unexplainable side pains throughout my day FINALLY went away!
I felt full for a much longer period of time (in the days of cereal or bananas with my coffee, I’d be craving lunch by 10 am)
My head is less foggy
I have a better attitude and more energy all around
It’s become a little easier to say no to those office donuts (even though a small part of me is always saying yes)
Want to kiss your cravings goodbye too? Start with protein, fat, fiber and greens like eggs and bacon on a small toast with a spinach cucumber avocado salad drizzled with olive oil. Can’t see yourself rocking a breakfast salad? Give one of these smoothies a go instead. Protein? Check. Fat? Check. Fiber and greens and feeling amazing? Check, check & CHECK!
