Breakfast


Do you run for School or work without having a breakfast? and by mid-morning you find your energy levels zapped and you feel like you have nothing left to give? Yes? Then this is for you.
By now, you've probably heard that breakfast is the meal of champions and most importantly, it is the most important meal of the day.

When you go to sleep, your body goes through the complicated process of repairing nutrients and refreshing the cells in your body. And when you wake up in the morning, your blood sugar levels may be lower than you would typically expect. This leads to hunger and symptoms related to low blood sugar.

- If you were to have breakfast, you would be replenishing your body with the energy it needs to start your day.
- But if you don't have breakfast, you may find sluggishness, tiredness and of course hunger throughout morning until you eat again.

Why Breakfast is Important?

1. Metabolism
The first food we have in the morning is always to boost our metabolism, if you eat the right type of food. Including foods like lean protein, fruits, vegetables and healthy fats, all require your body to expend some energy to breaking it down. Eggs are perfect for this.
Eating a healthy breakfast keeps us full, satisfied and hunger-free until your mid-morning snack time comes around. If you skip your mid-morning snack, you may find yourself back on the sugar roller coaster with periods of high and low blood sugar levels.

2.  Repair Cells
Our body is constantly changing, and replacing damaged cells. When we have breakfast, it provides us with the essential nutrients our body needs in order to repair and replenish our cells from lost nutrients and the building blocks for optimal health.
Breakfast refreshes us and helps to perform at peak levels. 

3. Prevents Diseases
With a higher metabolism, our body is more apt to burning calories, therefore helping in maintaining a healthy weight. Plus, losing and maintaining weight is helpful for reducing risks of heart disease, diabetes and even cancer. 

Tip
* Include fiber, proteins, carbs and essential fats to make a well balanced and energy increasing breakfast.

Yes, no mistake about it, I did put cocoa and weight loss in the same sentence.  Cocoa is the non-fat product of cocoa liquor also known as 'crème de cacao'. Now, when you see 'liquor' you may say there's Alcohol in it!

Add Intensity To Your Muscle Building Workout

One of the biggest difficulties facing bodybuilders is how can they be sure that all muscle fibers have been recruited and exhausted during a given exercise and it is only by achieving this that muscle gains can be maximized.

Few techniques that will help to increase your muscle growth:

Increase resistance
Increasing the weight lifted in meaningful increments ensures the muscle is pushed beyond its previous point of failure thus maintaining the muscle building process. Aim to increase the weight when you reach six to eight reps and failure does not occur.

Change the exercise
To achieve maximal gains, all muscle fibers in a body part must be trained. Introducing a new exercise will stimulate growth.

Reduce rest intervals
Giving the muscles less time to recover before exposing them to further work has the effect of increasing intensity.

Introduce supersets
This involves performing two exercises for the same muscle group without a rest interval. This means you have to utilize different muscle fi…
