Break-FAST, Don't Skip It!
 
Growing up we're told almost everyday that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. The sad fact is that 35-40 percent of all Americans still skip breakfast. The first meal of the day is called breakfast because it breaks the fast that has lasted ten to twelve hours, since the last meal eaten the... day before, usually dinner.
 
By eating breakfast in the morning, you essentially give your body's metabolism a kick start so you can start burning calories. Your body stores Excess glucose by the liver as glycogen which is released when it is needed. Usually by late-morning, glycogen stores are almost completely depleted. So, if you were to skip breakfast, your body will in return have almost no quick energy available.
 
My recommended breakfast is always Oatmeal and Eggs, but if that takes up too much time, try a simple Protein Shake to get your body started.
