Eat breakfast 1/2 hour to 45 minutes after you wake up!

Did you know that if you start your first meal, breakfast, a half hour to 45 minutes from when you wake up, it gets your metabolism working? Try this new tip every day and you will see that you might just lose a few lbs.


You should consume your first meal of the day shortly after you wake up. Otherwise, you should eat within a half hour of waking up to reinvigorate your body after several hours of fasting. Your breakfast meal should contain ample carbohydrates and protein. For protein you should eat about one fifth, or 20%,of your daily total. In other words a 200-pound athlete should eat about 40 grams of protein at breakfast. You also need plenty of carbohydrates-about 25% of your daily total. If you are trying to getting leaner don’t worry about gaining excess body-fat as this time of the day your body has the highest insulin sensitivity levels which means that it needs to produce very little insulin to get the job of transporting nutrients into appropriate places. And when you have low levels of insulin in your body it is almost impossible to gain excess body weight. Besides most of the nutrients consumed this time of the day will be absorbed very efficiently and not be stored as fat. Breakfast is also the time to begin your day’s supplementation and vitamins C and E are a good place to start. These aid the body and promote recovery by destroying free radicals in tissues. Take about 1000mg of vitamin C and 400 IU of vitamin E with your morning meal. Also take your multivitamin, which should include minerals in the morning. Keep in mind that the recommended daily allowances (RDA) refer to the minimums an average person needs for general health. They don’t take into account therapeutic benefits applicable to sports performance and recovery from strenuous activity. So read labels and find a multi-vitamin that has more than the bare minimum RDA.”

Sometimes making breakfast early in the morning can be difficult or too time consuming, but there are some alternatives to a typical breakfast. An Herbalife Formula 1 meal, has all of the nutrition that you need in one shake. It is quick and simple to make, and cheap too. Honestly, when do we get all of the vitamins and minerals and protein in every meal? Rarely. I have a shake every morning, and it is quick, it tastes great, I add fruit in it, and it keeps me full for at least 2 hours. I highly recommend this. AND I used to be addicted to cereal. All kinds of cereal. I had to break that habit. When I changed to this shake, I had more energy, I lost weight, and I saved money. Cereal boxes are so expensive now!! This is better.

“Treat your body to a healthy, balanced meal in no time! Not only are these shakes easy to make, they’re also delicious. With up to 20 essential vitamins, minerals and nutrients¬ – and in seven flavors – weight management never tasted so good!” – Herbalife
