Make your breakfast a fat-burning, muscle-building inferno using these 5 secrets!
Secret #1: Eat at least 20 grams of leucine-rich protein at breakfast. The best sources are milk and egg protein.
Secret #2: Don’t hesitate to add another scoop of protein to your shakes, or more eggs to your omelet for that matter. You can eat up to 30-40 g of milk and/or egg protein at breakfast.
Secret #3: Consume 30% of your calories from protein, 30% from carbs and 40% from fat
Secret #4: Eat low-glycemic, high-fiber carbs. Low glycemic foods include oatmeal, beans and vegetables, which are packed with fat, fiber and protein and cause a slow, steady digestion, leading to a longer period of satiety.
Secret #5: Limit your carb intake at breakfast to about 40 g.
