Why breakfast doesn’t work…for everyone!

He wakes up every morning. Brushing each of his 32 teeth, 76 times.

He would do his tie in a single knot rather than a double knot to save up to 43 seconds.

He would run at a rate of 57 steps per block with an apple (which was his breakfast) to catch his 8:17am bus to work!

This is how the film, ‘Stranger than Fiction’ starts.

You have Will Ferrell playing a guy who has an insanely STRICT and RIGID routine

And it reminded me about what you’re often told about the ‘most important meal of the day’ AKA Breakfast

You know, how they tell you that you HAVE to eat it to ‘spike your metabolism’ or that ‘you’ll go into starvation mode and store loads of fat on your stomach’

Truth is: The research shows there is NO change in your metabolism or weight loss whether you eat breakfast or not

My point?

I’m all for routine. In fact, it’s something I’m pretty big on.

BUT..

​​​​You do not have to eat breakfast to lose weight if it doesn’t fit your lifestyle


^^^ Maybe you’re up super early, value an extra 20 minute in bed or prefer to eat more later when you’re actually hungry

But what actually is breakfast (this might surprise you…)

You see, most people see breakfast as the meal they eat when they first get up

But it is actually defined as ‘breaking a fast’


AKA


The first meal you eat. 
So – technically – eating your first meal at 12pm still means you had ‘breakfast’ as you are ‘breaking your fast’

Why you SHOULD eat breakfast?

1) It might stop you grabbing anything high fat / sugary on-the-go

2) You can often choose what you want to eat in the morning as you’re likely to be at home so can pick nutritious foods that keep you going for longer and stop you snacking  (get your vitamins and minerals in)

Why breakfast might not be for you…

1) You’re busy in the morning and food just isn’t a priority for you as you’re not hungry and won’t enjoy your food

2) You prefer to eat a bigger meal in the evening and want to balance your intake throughout the day

^^ Something I often do when eating out BIG to compensate

Do I – and the ladies – using my Shift Personal Training and Nutrition System eat breakfast?

Yes…sometimes …And… No

You see, it depends

^^^ Like most of things when it comes to diet, losing weight, and toning up
on your lifestyle, work, schedule and preferences.

And that’s why the ladies using my Shift Personal Training and Nutrition System get results (If you haven’t seen some of them, go here: www.FruciFit.com/Results)

Because you have a healthy eating plan that doesn’t deprive you of your favourite foods

Or

Tell you that you have to brush each of your teeth 76 times before breakfast or RISK going into STARVATION mode

Anyway, this January I’m on a mission to help as many Ladies as possible stick to their New Year Resolutions, which is why I’m giving away 4 Personal Training Trial Packages to start on Monday.
