Do you also have the experience of rushing out the door in the morning and rather having a longer sleep than spending time preparing breakfast? Or maybe you just struggle to eat that early in the morning?
Skipping breakfast can have a negative impact on your body. This is because your body tries to draw on its reserves for nutrients and water; but these have become depleted overnight.
By not eating breakfast, you are likely to feel tired and hungry later in the day, crave caffeine or sweets as your body desires energy to raise your blood sugar levels. This destabilises your blood sugar and can affect your weight loss and wellbeing in the long term.
A good breakfast wakes up your metabolism in order to have brain power and energy to function optimally. Your chances of following a healthy eating plan, with regular meals throughout the day are also increased if you start your day with breakfast.
As much as eating breakfast is important, it is also very important to eat the RIGHT breakfast. Your breakfast needs to contain key nutrients such as fibre, protein, complex carbohydrates, vitamins and minerals. Therefore, be wary of the quick piece of white toast or refined cereals, as they give you a quick burst of energy, but leave you hungry again shortly.

It is winter time in South Africa, which means wet, cold and snow capped mountains where I live! It also usually means piling on layers of clothing, hot chocolate and other comfort foods!
This winter I decided that I want to look good and feel great all through winter and right into spring, beating the spring need for weight loss and exercise. It hasn’t been easy all the time, but I can truly say that I am feeling great, I have lots of energy, sleep well and have not had to fight a cold or flu this winter.
The greatest contributor to my feeling of wellbeing is my trusted Herbalife products. My Herbalife shake has become one of my favourite foods and I look forward to my 2 diet shake meal replacements per day. They are so easy and convenient and takes only seconds to prepare. I use Herbalife Nutritional Shake Mix, Personalised Protein Powder, Thermojetics and Herbalife Herbal Aloe in my shake, mixed with a little milk and topped with water. For my shake just after / before exercise, I add a small banana to the mix.
For exercise I am doing boot camp, which is exercising outside at the crack of dawn. This might not be for everyone, but the key is to find something that you do love. Do you love dancing? Then join a dance class. Maybe more low key exercise like Pilates, Yoga or Callanetics? Enquire about classes at your nearest gym. Maybe you like to multitask and also have some time with a friend? Get your friend to join you in walking 3-5 times a week. Exercise remains a great stress reliever and releases serotonin in your body. Serotonin is a feel good hormone and the more you have of this, the less inclined you will be to eat for comfort or emotional eating.
