Breakfast + Protein = Fat Loss?

Breakfast + Protein = Fat Loss?
12.06.2017

Protein seems to be the main event in many of our breakfast foods from cereal to bacon and eggs to smoothies. It has become “household knowledge” that protein is the most important macronutrient and will help you decrease body fat. But how much of that information is actually true? Is protein that important to have for breakfast? And how much should you have?

If we all had perfect health, I would say that fasting is actually the best way to start your morning as our paleo ancestors generally waited 12-16 hours between the last and first meal of their day. Unfortunately, many of us have developed blood sugar imbalances which causes fasting to not be ideal for health and fat loss.

Because of this, it is important to “break the fast” with a meal that will not cause your blood sugar to influx even further. The two things that cause a spike in blood sugar and then a plummet are carbs. The less processed the carb, the less spike of blood sugar. With this spike comes cravings, energy lows, energy highs and just an over all feeling of uncomfortable-ness and hunger. This is where protein comes in.

Protein (and fat) are extremely important to have in your first meal of the day because it levels your blood glucose that is already high in the morning and sets you off on a good note to have an energy-filled, craving-less day!
