Break The Fast!

Everyone knows that breakfast is the most important meal of the day but how many

actually eat it? Breakfast literally means “break the fast”. After going 6-8 hrs without food

the body is actually “starved” for nutrients. During sleep the body uses the available

nutrients for repair and recovery. So, when you wake up the tank is empty. If you don’t

refuel with a nutritious breakfast your body will rob your lean muscle stores to get what it

needs to maintain itself. This can lead to decreased strength and performance, in addition

to mental and physical fatigue. It’s important that breakfast include protein, carbs, good

fats and fiber.  Do your body good (it has to last a long time) and start the day off right!

Eat breakfast.

Get Strong! Stay Strong!
