Slimmer Saturdays - Lean, Mean, Breakfast eating machine!

I am not going to beat around the bush with this one, since I'm sure you've heard this plenty of times. NO MATTER WHAT! EAT BREAKFAST.



The difference for me, between eating breakfast and not eating breakfast was about 5-6 kgs. I had a brilliant idea that if I got up late, skipped breakfast, went straight for a salad lunch and then continued on with my evening snack and dinner, I would avoid 400 calories. Oh gosh I couldn't have been wronger!!! I ended up putting on more, and mind you, I was working out for about an hour everyday.

So now that you know that breakfast is important, I guess you'd like to know what to eat for breakfast. Here's my standard breakfast menu from Monday to Saturday (Sunday is my cheat day). It's so simple that whether you're running late or have the whole day off, this breakfast will be Quick and Easy.

1. A medium sized bowl of Muesli mixed with All Bran or Kellogg's special K with toned milk
2. Three egg whites boiled with black pepper (yellows removed from the egg after boiling)
3. Two slices of whole wheat bread. One with Nuttella and one with Peanut butter.
4. A cup of black tea.

This is a wholesome breakfast. Nutritionists recommend all food groups in the morning. This breakfast contains Fibre, Protein, Carbohydrate, Calcium, Vitamin B12, Mono and Polyunsaturated Fats. This breakfast will ensure that your cravings are controlled through out the day.

Please remember that eating too less sends your body into starvation mode, which will end up making you pack on the pounds whether you eat healthy or not. Therefore, in order to lose weight you need to eat right.

Your body is sacred. Don't throw trash into it, treat it with respect. Love your body and it will love you back.

Next Saturday - Work out for a slimmer waist!

XOXO
