Tip #2: Eat a nice, big breakfast.
Recent studies show that making breakfast your biggest meal of the day promotes weight loss and reduces your risk for diabetes, high cholesterol and heart disease.
I’m not giving you a license to pile on the syrupy pancakes and greasy sausage (sorry!). Choose unprocessed foods like oatmeal, whole grains, eggs, lean meat, nuts, seeds, and of course, fruits and veggies. A good low-sugar mix of protein, fiber and complex carbs will keep you full, and energized, longer.
A couple examples: two eggs with whole grain toast and avocado slices; low-sugar oatmeal or cereal with milk and fruit; a smoothie including things like plain yogurt, a banana, flax/chia seeds, kale…get creative!
I hereby commit to posting extremely brief tidbits of useful wisdom, termed “Trainers Tips,” on a regular basis. You may ponder, ignore, or do as you wish with them as you go about your day.
Info about what? Well…fitness. Exercise tips, motivational tips, nutrition tips, health and well-being tips. Maybe mind-blowing, maybe obvious but perhaps overlooked. Tips to help you in your quest to become the happiest, healthiest you ever, one day at a time.
How often? Most days. Okay, I may get super busy or lazy one day. Or two. Don’t hold it against me.
Where? Here. On this site. And my Facebook page and google+ page.
Why? Because they’re short and sweet and force me to post to my blog regularly. And because I love helping my readers in any small way I can, of course.
