BREAKFAST FOR A SMART START

 

No-BS blogger and nutritional therapist in training Ryan Carter shares two of his go-to breakfast recipes with male and female portion options, one sweet and one savoury for every palate. Get ready to start your day the right way!

 

We are all uniquely different many factors influence calorie intake: such as gender, genetics, lifestyle factors, sleep quality, toxic exposure, micronutrient balance, sun exposure, exercise, muscle mass and stress.

 

Solely focusing on counting calories for the long term is unrealistic. If you have a short-term goal of fat loss then yes, it will help to be accountable for sure, BUT do you want to be counting calories for the rest of your life?
I definitely won’t, I have not counted calories for a few months but then again I have educated myself about food and how to listen to what my body needs.

For long term health goals, to be in a calorie deficit and a sustainable approach for fat loss & long term optimal health, optimise your lifestyle with these things;

STRESS– the biggest burden to the body by far. Try meditation, yoga, be grateful and don’t forget to laugh
REMOVE TOXIC EXPSORE– environmental and emotional
SLEEP– Get what you need, wake up naturally even if that means an earlier bed time, avoid blue-light and when you wake up get sun exposure in the morning.
MICRO NUTRIENTS– What the body needs for thousands of reactions in the body. More plants mean more phytonutrients and more potential for greatness!

 

Here’s my breakfast plan for male and female diets, again everyone is different but something to consider!

To track your intake, I can recommend cronometer instead of myfitnesspal for a more detailed micronutrient reading.

Just some food for thought – or some mindfulness before your mouth!
