Blackbrook Nutrition Habits
Step 1/ Drink 1 pint of plain water daily.
Step 2/ Add a healthy fat to breakfast.
Step 3/ Cooked vegetables in the evening.
Step 4/ Raw vegetable at lunch.
Step 5/ Breakfast protein…
Now that we have been adding a healthy fat to breakfast for some time, now we’re going to add some protein to it.
Your body needs protein to build and rebuild tissues. Contractile proteins like your muscles are constantly in a state of rebuilding if you train regularly, and structural proteins like the elastin in your skin are constantly turning over as well. Really, aging of the skin is simply how much the process of protein turnover slows down. Getting adequate protein at even intervals throughout the day will aid in recovery and help slow the aging process…
As an extra special bonus breakfast tip... Eating at least 40% of your breakfast calories as protein will decrease carbohydrate impulses and promote fat loss. For best results, try to do this within 60, but preferably 30 minutes of waking up.
Here’s why it’s a good idea:
Eating early is critical: consuming a protein rich breakfast within 30 minutes of waking can double, and in some cases even triple your rate of fat loss.
2 or 3 eggs will do the trick... If you’re in a hurry, choke back a protein shake or have a stash of hard boiled eggs in the fridge ready to go..
“The first month, his rate of loss was 7.7kg per month. The second month, when he postponed breakfast, his rate of loss dropped to 2.5kg per month. The third month, after consuming 30g of protein with 30 minutes of waking, that rate almost tripled to 8.5 kg per month…”
These numbers don’t tell the whole story as he was adding muscle at the same time, but this type of accelerated fat loss is typical.
Protein with 30 minutes of waking up. Make it happen.
