No, it's always better to eat real food, food that has all the nutrients your body needs to start good the day! And that comes from real food! Oats, eggs abocado, f
Breakfast should be a big meal. I prefer ceasing eating by 18:00 each day. So the following meal must be big including mostly good fats and protein with very little carbohdrates
You probably want to eat the most nutritious meal of the day at breakfast. For most people, this is about 4 oz. (100g) of protein, plus about 2 oz. (30g) of carbohydrates. Bananas are extremely carbohydrate-dense.
Also, make sure you get the vitamins and minerals you need every day. Many, like vitamin C, are water soluble and require additional intake.
I started Optavia a couple of months ago and was wondering the same thing. I’ve always heard breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Plus, I am diabetic. I was really concerned about having so few calories. On Optavia, I’m eating 6 meals a day. 4 very small 100 calorie-ish meals and 2 healthy protein and greens meals. Thus far, it’s worked out great. I’m rarely hungry, my blood sugar is stable and I’m losing weight at a reasonable pace. All that being said, my short answer is that as long as you aren’t starving yourself before lunch and you are paying attention to the nutrients in the shake, I think you will be ok.
- Why is it wrong to skip breakfast? I know people who skip breakfast and actually feel better after skipping breakfast.
- I can eat in the morning, but I’m having a hard time eating before going to work because no matter what time I wake up I feel like I’m always running late. I want to eat before I get to work because I want to eat breakfast within an hour of waking up to start my day off right. How do you do it?
- Is eating breakfast the first or last part of your morning routine?
- How do I start remembering things better and feel comfortable with it?
- What are some yummy add-ins that you like to put in your overnight oats?
- Is caffeine okay, or not recommended?
- What do you have for breakfast as a healthy option?
- I have to get two kids (2 and 3) ready every morning and don’t ever feel like I have time to cook eggs for breakfast. What are some very healthy going-out-the-door recipes that take minimal prep?
- Is it good to run before or after breakfast?
- Any small meals that are filling? I’m not very hungry in the morning and don’t know what to eat.
