Quick question: Did you eat breakfast this morning?

Of all the meals we eat, breakfast gets the least respect.

Here’s what I’m talking about:

1 – Breakfast is the most skipped meal. As many as 25% of us skip it every day!

2 – It’s often an afterthought – or even a problem! Because …

3 – When we do eat it, we want something that’s fast and requires no/little effort.

4 – And it’s even better if we can eat (or drink) our breakfast on the run.

The fact is, there are a LOT of studies investigating whether we even need to eat breakfast in the first place.

However, many of those studies have linked eating breakfast to being healthier.

People who eat breakfast tend to have:

  • Lower levels of LDL (“bad”) cholesterol,
  • Less risk of getting diabetes, heart disease, or being overweight.
  • Better memory and concentration.

But the fact is, researchers don’t know whether all of that is caused by eating breakfast – or whether people who eat breakfast tend to have healthier habits.

Either way, that’s a solid enough reason to eat breakfast! It sets the tone for your entire day.

Remember: It’s the small things that we do every day that add up to big results. 

What did YOU have for breakfast this morning!?

Lots more good stuff to come … stay tuned!

Setting realistic goals

Every once in a while I get a panicked email or call from someone who wants to “lower their cholesterol down x points before their next doctor’s appointment a month from now“ or “get ready for a marathon in two months”. Don’t get me wrong: Those are all important goals … but they absolutely are not possible (at least in a healthy and sustainable way) in only a month or two!
