We’ve all heard this, but do we know why?
Your digestive system is most active in the morning, so this is the best time to take in a good bulk of your food to get your metabolism going for the rest of the day. You should look at breakfast like an energy slingshot into the rest of your day, setting you up for success on your next meals.
Cortisol is also naturally higher in the mornings (well its supposed to be anyway), which controls hunger and the desire for food. Going a long time before eating can elevate these levels to harmful amounts, leading to muscle wastage for energy and an increased likelihood of eating the wrong thing at lunch.
All of our Personal Training Clients and Bootcamp members always remember to get formatted for a big healthy breakfast as soon as you rise, and the rest of the day will come naturally.
