Food is Fuel!

Posted on 3 October, 2016 at 11:25

October 3, 2016

No matter what time of day, we do need food to fuel us. Whether your goals are achieving optimal performance, weight loss, muscle building, energizing your life – prioritize food as much as you would your work, house chores, training session, or even competition/race.

Early morning breakfast in particular seem to pose an extra challenge. I often hear clients and friends say they don’t eat breakfast. I’ve heard every excuse in the book. Too tired to get up even 15 minutes earlier to eat, not hungry, food makes me nauseous if I eat too early, trying to lose weight so don’t need the extra energy, or simply just unaware that it was important.

First, breakfast is ALWAYS important. It kick starts your metabolism, similar to warming up your car on a cold day. This means you will boost your energy level first thing in the morning rather than waiting an hour or more. A side benefit to this is your body will start burning more calories at rest sooner – which can be beneficial for weight loss or maintenance.  Breakfast before a morning workout is especially important as you need fuel for your empty tank (or body!). Yes, you will have some energy without putting any food in you beforehand. However – because you haven’t eaten anything for the past 7-12 hours this energy will come from your body breaking down internal stores of fat and muscle. This in turn will leave you feeling fatigued, and result in a decrease in strength and endurance. Making it much more difficult for you to achieve your goals.

Some tips for those excuses:

Too tired to get up even 15 minutes earlier to eat?

Those extra 15 minutes will go a long way. Do yourself a favour and go to bed 15 minutes earlier the night before so that you  can wake up a little earlier and give your body what it needs for optimal fuel and an optimal workout.


Not hungry?

It’s likely because your body isn’t used to eating at such an early time of day. You need to train yourself to eat something in the morning, just as you train yourself during a workout.


Food makes you nauseous if you eat too early? 

Same as above – your body just isn’t used to anything in the stomach at this hour. Start simple and work your way up – a glass filled with half juice and half water, progress to a full glass of juice, next you can try introducing a fruit, then a fruit and yogurt, then maybe a small bowl of cereal.


Trying to lose weight so don’t think you need the extra energy?

You want to target fat loss, not muscle mass. Building or at least maintaining lean muscle mass is essential when trying to lose body fat as muscle burns more calories at rest than fat. So the more muscle you have, the higher your metabolism will be, and the more calories you will burn at rest. Also, if you workout, you will get a better workout if you do eat something beforehand – meaning you will burn more calories bringing you one step closer to your goals.


Unaware breakfast was that important?

Now you know! Pass the message on!

I wanted to create you one very little remark to say thanks over again for all the unique information you've discussed on this page. It was particularly open-handed of you to give without restraint what exactly a few people would have offered for an e book to help make some bucks for their own end, chiefly considering the fact that you might have done it in case you wanted. The thoughts additionally acted as the easy way to fully grasp that someone else have similar keenness much like my personal own to learn somewhat more in terms of this matter. I believe there are many more enjoyable times up front for many who go through your website.

I wish to show my thanks to you just for rescuing me from this type of dilemma. After surfing around throughout the world wide web and coming across ways which are not pleasant, I believed my entire life was well over. Living without the approaches to the difficulties you've sorted out by way of your entire short post is a serious case, as well as those that would have in a wrong way affected my entire career if I hadn't encountered the blog. Your main mastery and kindness in playing with every part was tremendous. I'm not sure what I would have done if I hadn't encountered such a thing like this. I can also at this time relish my future. Thanks a lot very much for your skilled and results-oriented guide. I won't think twice to suggest the website to any person who ought to have guide about this topic.
