3 Breakfast Secrets to Boost Your Metabolism
According to research, everyone should eat a healthy breakfast. This is to kickstart your metabolism and avoid mid-morning energy slumps and over-snacking.
But what is a healthy breakfast?
A healthy breakfast is essentially one which leaves you feeling satisfied, has supplied you with the right amount of nutrients and has left your body and mind ready to take on the day.
Here are three simple breakfast secrets to follow:
Rich in Protein
Protein digests slower than carbohydrates do, so adding ample amounts of protein will ensure you stay satisfied for longer.
Instead of relying solely on carbs, try incorporating a hard boiled egg, or some peanut butter on whole-grain toast.
In your breakfast, there should always be at least five grams of fibre, and there should always be more fibre than sugar.
Try adding some chia seeds or ground flax seeds to boost your fibre rations. They can boost your metabolism by activating glucagon, one of the body’s fat-burning hormones.
Fats are Friends, not Foes
A meal with zero fat can make you hungry again within an hour. Try using two percent fat milk or yoghurt rather than fat-free products, or add some nuts to your breakfast.
