Start Your Day With a Smile…Avoid These Foods for Breakfast


Breakfast truly is the most important meal of the day. When you begin your day eating a nutrient deficient, high calorie breakfast, you are setting yourself up for failure. A good breakfast includes healthy protein, complex carbohydrates, and a small amount of healthy fats.

You need a breakfast that will maintain a stable blood sugar. This will keep you feeling satiated until you are ready for your next meal. To avoid feeling sluggish throughout the day, stay away from the following foods for breakfast.

1. Donuts

The sugar-starch combination in your morning donut packs a double health punch, raising your blood sugar precariously and setting you up for a long day of hunger-induced binge eating and nap-inducing blood sugar crashes.

In addition, the donut is notoriously fat laden, making you feel drowsy and lethargic instead of energetic and ready for the workday.

Finally, while no one considers donuts healthy, you may not realize exactly how many calories and how much fat are in just one. For example, an apple fritter has approximately 450 calories and 17 grams of fat, most of which is saturated.

Although donuts taste delicious, you set yourself up to have a really bad day if you only eat donuts for breakfast.

Try having a breakfast that includes protein, such as some granola and Greek yogurt. The energy and staying power you will get from eating a breakfast that has protein in it will make you wish you realized this sooner.

When you need to have energy for a busy day ahead, donuts do not have any staying power. Sure, you’ll have a lot of energy for about 30 minutes, but soon your sugar high will come crashing down and you will feel horrible.

Save the donuts for a time when you want a little treat and don’t go for the donuts at breakfast time.

    So self absorbed! America is lost and all of the old guide posts are pitched into the trash! We have an abundance of food because dudes in lab coats concocted this mess we call food so that a huge abundance of it could be manufactured to fill many bellies…at the cost of health and all for huge profits….! We do not eat to survive…we exist to be sold an item then we consume it as we are told to do. We buy it for the sake of spending cash on it. They profit we slowly poison ourselves…but not to worry others will take our place. We exist simply to be sold stuff to. When we no longer can afford to buy the stuff they are selling then we are useless. You watch…as the great middle class exits…they will market increasingly exssensive items to the next level up. Apple is such a good example of this whole worlds existence! A 10K watch???? We are all so sickly and dealing with fat troubles. We are consumed by this 24 7. Folks…non of us wirks the way our parents did on the farms and factories….You fatties know this. You all eat and sit maybe walk a bit on yer jobs…but we do not work as a country the way we did in the past. Now we eat like pigs…but can not figure out why we sick? If you were to excercise like some sort of marine dude or dudess does you turn everything you eat into ash! A little bit comes out of you at the end of the day! Not so now with you all. We eat so much and crap loads! you say? Dat come outta me? Yes cuz so much went in! You right about not eating anything…actually you can eat all you want of zero calorie foods!!!! but you just goin put dat wait on de minute you eat dem high calorie stuffs. dis is da prablem! If you fat stop eating high calorie foods. You have to eat 500 calorie a day and spend 1800 calorie a day to lose yer fat! Dat is how it works….! No short cuts!
