A healthy breakfast is a great way to set the tone for the rest of the day. Loading up on nutrients first thing in the morning can help you to stay fuller longer and can also help to curb cravings throughout the rest of the day. A good rule of thumb when planning breakfast is to combine protein, fiber and a source of healthy fat. Protein helps to prevent muscle loss, which can keep your metabolism high while losing weight. The body also burns more calories digesting and absorbing protein than other nutrients. Fiber helps normalize bowel movements, prevents constipation, reduces heart disease, regulates blood sugar, and helps to prevent GI cancers. Fat takes longer to digest than other nutrients, so it can help to keep you fuller for a longer period of time. All three nutrients combined will set you with the perfect combination!
