What do you do for breakfast in the morning?

There of tons of different theories out there.  Is it the most important meal of the day?  Some people believe it and some don’t.

Tim Ferris in his book 4 Hour Body talks about one of the most effective things you can do is take in 30 grams of protein for breakfast in the morning.

Charles Poloquin a very prolific strength and conditioning coach recommends rotating a meat and a handful of nuts every day.  Using different meats and different nuts.

Then there’s the intermittent fasting crowd.  They recommend going without breakfast and fasting for 16-19 hours since dinner in order to get positive results

On the same note as the intermittent fasting crowd Bullet Proof Coffee is another route.  This involves adding butter and MCT oil to your coffee in the morning as breakfast.

So which one is right?

The answer is….. all of them can be right.  I know it’s  a cop out.  The reality is, that we are all different, and we’ll respond different ways to different things.  I’ve done all of these with success in some form or fashion.  I’ve also used all of these with clients in some form or fashion with success.

You have to experiment and figure out what is best for you.  We are all genetically different.  If you have a lot of body fat to lose, you have blood sugar regulation problems, so I would start off with the protein in the morning route, and then if that goes well for you stick with.  If after 6 weeks you don’t see results.  Try the fasting or Bullet Proof coffee.

Of course you can work with your coach on the right approach, but ultimately it’s important to find out what works for you.

So what do you currently do for breakfast?  I want to know!  Post comments in the comments section!
