Herbalife Healthy Breakfast

What do you have for breakfast?

Chances are, like most people, you have either a simple carbohydrate ‘meal’ of toast or cereal, or you skip breakfast entirely (usually leading to mid-morning snacking).

Both of these approaches lead to rapid increases in blood sugar and insulin, carbohydrate cravings (snacking) and a drop in energy.

Carbohydrate-based breakfast…

In the morning, simple carbohydrates (sugary refined cereals, white bread, toast etc) cause an immediate surge in blood sugar, which results in a substantial release of insulin from our pancreas.

The insulin removes most of the sugar from our blood, turning any excess into fat. The result is a decreased level of blood sugar, and thirst for more carbohydrates. This cycle repeats itself 2-3 more times during the day.

This vicious cycle constitutes one of the major reasons for diabetes, high blood pressure and extra weight.

Skipping breakfast…

When we skip breakfast, blood sugar drops below the normal level , leading to cravings and a drop in energy.

You again revert to simple carbohydrates to achieve a quick surge of blood sugar and to overcome hunger and a drop of energy. Simple carbohydrates will cause a immediate surge of blood sugar level and a substantial insulin emission. The insulin removes sugar from blood turning it excess into fat. Then this cycle repeats itself 2-3 more times during the day.

This vicious cycle constitutes one of the major reasons for diabetes, high blood pressure and extra weight.

Balanced healthy breakfast

Such a breakfast supplies our body with all vital nutrients and energy without increasing blood sugar and insulin levels. It helps to avoid dependence on carbohydrates during the day. In this way, appetite stays under control, craving for carbohydrates (snacks, chocolate, pastry, junk, soft drinks, etc) diminish and the body uses its own stored fats to get more energy.

A healthy breakfast …

A balanced healthy breakfast should do three things:

  • Rehydrate the body, to replace the fluids lost during sleep.
  • Provide the body with energy.
  • Provide the body with all vital nutrients while helping to maintain a normal blood sugar level.
