III. Satisfaction Step
A. So the solution is pretty simple. Eat a good, wholesome, healthy breakfast every morning without fail.
B. Some things to consider when going about a breakfast routine are:
1. eat within 60 minutes of waking up.
2. even if you wait a while to eat breakfast, you’re still doing your body a favor.
3. include foods like raspberries, oatmeal, yogurt, peanut butter, eggs, bananas, whole wheat breads, honey, low fat milk.
4. if you’re goal is to gain more mass, include more carbs. Vice versa, if your goal is to lose weight, then eat less carbs.
5. include both protein and carbs in your breakfast of choice. also consider some fresh fruits or berries.
C. In a study presented at the 2007 Experimental Biology meeting, researchers at Pennington Biomedical Research Center compared weight loss in women who ate either two eggs or a bagel for breakfast. The two breakfast meals were identical in calories and volume."Compared to the bagel eaters, overweight women who ate two eggs for breakfast five times a week for eight weeks as part of a low-fat, reduced-calorie diet, lost 65% more weight, reduced waist circumference by 83%, reported higher energy levels, and had no significant difference in their … blood cholesterol or triglyceride levels," reports researcher Nikhil V. Dhurandhar, PhD (par. 11).
D. My personal experience with eating a healthy breakfast religiously has been very enjoyable. Aside from forcing myself to eat in the mornings (which does get easier over time), my dietary changes as a whole have been extremely effective. I have maintained a 30-31 inch waist size for some time now, my stomach/abdominals have leaned out substantially, and I definitely feel much more energetic through out the entire day.
E. Now, I know that many people would still choose to argue the opposite of everything that I’ve discussed. Aside from all the facts and evidence of the contrary, the only thing I have to say in response to those opponents would be: There are plenty of reasons to opt out of breakfast every morning. To avoid even so much as a glance at your kitchen. But there is no evidence that eating a healthy breakfast will cause any adverse effect. So what is there to lose?
