Breakfast (at what ever time this may be) is so important as we are eating in a
fasted state! Whether this be sleeping for 6-8 hours or waiting to eat during the
day, it is essential we pack and load our bodies with nutrients!
I’m lucky. I have been given the opportunity to coach and educate over 500
people in the last 2 years on fat loss, living life with more energy and moving
better. I work long hours, train hard and have very little down time. I need to
nourish my body the right way to ensure I have enough energy to maintain my
ideal physique and perform at a high standard.
This is what I have and why!
200g Lean Red Meat
Medium rare is my preference and not just because it tastes delicious with
cracked pepper and pink himalayan salt. A lean cut of red meat plays a role
increasing dopamine levels. Dopamine plays a role in cognitive function,
motivation, reward and pleasurable sensations. Who doesn’t want to start their
day this way!? PLUS this cut has around a whopping 48g protein. Red meat
naturally taking a lot longer to digest which means the body will slowly absorb
the protein at a steady rate!
Did you know avocado is a fruit? I like to call this one nature’s butter! Delicious,
packed with good fats and high in vitamins B and K; promoting healthy energy
levels and blood flow! Our body cannot produce good fats so we must consume
Wilt or Fresh – Both are delish – High in water content and rich in vitamins and
minerals! Spinach is a natural diuretic; if you are someone who holds a lot of
water spinach is great incorporate into your first meal!
Double shot Piccolo
No coffee no workee! I am not addicted to coffee but I do enjoy the taste. Now the
biggest calorie factor of a coffee is the additions – the milk, the sugar, the syrup. A
piccolo is a half-filled latte, minimizing the extras! If you are looking for your
morning hit or just love the flavor, give a piccolo a go!
Everyone is different, and no single plan will suit everybody. From my
experience, a large majority of students I have worked with respond with higher
energy levels, improved mood, improved mental focus and clarity when eating a
high protein and fats breakfast.
If these are the things you are lacking, perhaps you need to shift from the cereal
and load your body with nutrients. We have many protein and fats meals in our
Witness The Delicious Recipe Ebook, which you will receive if you join our 8
Week Challenge. More information can be found here.
