Starting your day with the right breakfast will make a deal of a difference when you’re trying to burn fat.
Sugary cereals, refined white bread, pastries, cakes… not only will spike your insulin triggering cravings, but it will also shut down your body’s ability to burn fat by suppressing growth hormone release.
HGH (human growth hormone) is a hormone that stimulates growth, cell reproduction and cell regeneration. HGH gets released at its peak up until the age of 21 and it starts declining as we age. That’s one of the reasons why we gain weight, develop wrinkles, loose muscle mass and develop a slower metabolism.
By starting your day with a breakfast high in protein and good fats you will maximise growth hormone secretion, fat mobilization and protein synthesis using your body fat as fuel.
Try it out!! It will also provide you with lots of energy and satiety.
