Are you a breakfast person?
If you are trying to lose weight (fat), you are most likely watching your caloric intake. You may even have target calories to aim for in a day or week. If you are a breakfast person, you may find yourself having a hard time fitting in a larger dinner or special dessert to finish off the day because it will exceed your intake goals.
For those breakfast aficionados out there, we have a solution for you! It is definitely possible to make a breakfast that you can look forward to when you wake up.
Specifically, we recommend that you focus on protein for breakfast and keep carbs/fat moderate to low in the morning, especially if you don’t know the full extent of those evening plans just yet.
Let’s start the morning strong by having some go-to recipes lined up!
