Protein at breakfast can help you get lean
These breakfast recipes are high in protein and moderate in complex carbohydrates and healthy fats. The macronutrient balance and fiber is designed to be filling, and to help you avoid the sugar crash from processed breakfast foods 1, 2, 3. The portion size may not fit your specific needs, so definitely adjust up or down as you see fit (or use our app).
While eating breakfast in general has not been shown to increase weight loss, eating high-protein breakfasts has been shown to increase alertness, fullness hormones, and reduce cravings 4, 5, 6.
When should you eat breakfast?
Harvard Health’s Dr. Monique Tello, MPH summarizes that
“Overnight fasting of at least 16 hours (which really isn’t that extended) allows blood sugar and insulin levels to decrease, so that fat stores can be used for energy.”
That means that our bodies can’t burn fat if it is constantly being fed more energy.
The good news is that you can eat breakfast literally whenever.
For example, breaking a fast might look like waking up at 6am, then eating at 10am when you actually feel hungry. Or it could be eating as soon as you woke up at 8am because you had an early 5pm dinner early last night (15 hours fast). It’s up to you!
