It's such a great article. You have to go visit the link and read the whole thing.
But what are some ideas for breakfast that is high in healthy fats and lower on the carb factor.
Complex carbs aren't a no no as long as you include protein and some fats with them. For example, slow cook oats, multi grain bread with a protein, fruit with high fat/protein yogurt or cottage cheese. Avoid the white carbs in the morning especially.
Anyone still getting caught up eating a bagel at Timmys for breakie or a muffin at Bucks should just cut it out. Crossaints are yummy if they're from Clafouti but it doesn't give you any real energy to keep you going through the day.
Here are some ideas I offer clients for breakfast:
A couple eggs (they aren't the devil we once thought they were) with one piece of whole grain toast Oatmeal with protein powder, some nuts and blueberries Dinner for breakfast as long as it isn't starchy like pasta. Think outside the box. I can stomach chicken curry for breakfast. One of my clients regularly eats mackerel. Protein shake with high fat yogurt 2% cottage cheese with a bit of fruit and nuts
Just some ideas.
What this study confirms yet again is if you eat a well balanced breakfast that isn't a piece of toast or Special K like cereal that has some fats and protein in it, you're more likely to control your eating later in the day. It's not just about self control. It's about the impact our choices early in the day have on our bodies' cravings and our blood sugar levels.
