3 Mistakes people make during Breakfast

Metabolic rate is affected by several factors including age, weight, and genetics. Although there’s not a whole lot you can do about those things, there are still choices that can cause metabolism to fire up or fizzle. If losing weight is your goal, avoid these metabolism-slowing mistakes in the morning.

  • Eating too late: Skipping breakfast is one of the worst things you can do for weight loss since it causes your metabolism to slow down. When you don’t eat, the brain sends a message to the rest of the body to conserve energy, signaling it to hold onto the stored fat that you’re trying to get rid of. Eating within an hour of waking sparks the metabolic process called thermogenesis that turns the food you eat into energy. And no – a cup of coffee does not count as breakfast!. Make sure to eat throughout the day to maintain blood sugar levels since any drops can cause the body to burn muscle for fuel. 
  • Not exercising: Research shows you continue burning calories up to 24 hours after working out, and studies also show that morning exercises burn more calories than those who sweat it out during other times of the day. If you’re planning on exercising anyway, for maximum calorie burn, your best bet is to get it done in the a.m. Include high intensity cardio intervals since challenging yourself is proven to activate fat-burning genes, which translates to an increased post-workout calorie burn – 100 to 200 more. 
  • Not pumping iron: Lean muscle mass burns calories, and just adding five to 10 pounds of lean muscle to your frame will increase your daily calorie burn by 100 calories. Include strength training in your morning routine.

Above are concepts the greater medical community are now putting together. It boils down to BASIC PHYSIOLOGY involving the stomach/brain connection. I hope you enjoy this one but at the same time feel encouraged about our targeted , scientific and effective effort in this battle over obesity with it’s related diseases. I have highlighted a few points made in this article that were questioned by our clients attending our current workshop. Part of the 90% of Americans not eating breakfast at home was derived in part from the fact that more and more Americans consider drinking a cup of coffee in the morning as “having breakfast”. Interesting. I hope you enjoy this.
