These bowls are not only pretty but will do the job at giving you a morning boost and help keep you burn fat and keep your appetite at bay.
We’ve all heard that phrase, “breakfast is the most important meal of the day” and while that might not be applicable to everyone, it certainly is for those who want to maintain or lose body fat.
Based on John L Ivy, a professor of exercise science at the University of Texas at Austin,
“Breakfast is a critical meal because it influences practically every dimension of our being during the course of the day, including how we perform physically and mentally.”
Whether you’re going to school or work, a healthy breakfast will come a long way in jumpstarting your day and if you pick the right food, it can sustain your energy throughout the entire day! Picking the right food will also help you curb your hunger till lunch time so you won’t be reaching for a salty treat halfway through your morning.
An added bonus, having breakfast will also lower the stress hormone, cortisol, which tends to peak in the morning. If you’ve ever found yourself having a “fat day” from stress, this hormone is the culprit.
One of cortisol’s important function in the body is to stimulate fat and carbohydrate metabolism for a quick distribution of energy to the body along with stimulating insulin release and body sugar level maintenance. The result of cortisol’s function is an increase in appetite. As the level of cortisol in our body rises, so would our appetite, which explains the cravings for salty and sugary treats.
So instead of skipping breakfast and allowing the influx of cortisol levels to affect your eating habits, try these fat burning breakfast recipes in the morning! They’ll help boost your mood, lower stress levels, burn fat with key ingredients and… they’re freaking delicious.
