1. Don’t Skip it!
You need to wake up and eat your meal to kick of your metabolism and prepare your body to start burning food for the day. Skipping it or eating breakfast much later than you woke up slows down your metabolism and you are more likely to burn less and store more food instead. You’ll also be less likely to arrive starving at lunch and won’t eat heavy at your next meal.
2. Portion Control:
Remember moderation is key! Control the amount you are eating and try to avoid the big Lebanese breakfast table…bread and cheese and beans and eggs and pastries…Limit your choices and your amount.
3. The Breakfast Combo:
I’m sure I’ve written about this combo many times, but it’s that important! Here’s what you should eat when you wake up and when controlling your portions:Make sure to choose foods that will fill you up instead of give you a sugar rush followed by a crash.
This healthy combo contains: healthy carbs, the good fat, and protein
Avoid: Croissant, Cakes, Pancakes, and other Pastries
Choose: - Boiled Egg with Avocado and Whole wheat Toast- Oatmeal with Light Yogurt and Berries- Light Cottage Cheese (Labneh) Sandwich with Whole wheat bread
