Dr. Paul’s Megatabolism Breakfast
We have all heard it recommended by many health professionals — the most important and largest meal of the day should be breakfast. To help me remember this, I like the saying, “breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince, and dinner like a pauper”. Tons of really good scientific research supports this eating pattern, along with including a few healthy protein snacks in between. This eating pattern will launch your metabolism into overdrive!
In keeping with starting the day with a nourishing breakfast, this one has proven the most effective for me and all of the athletes, clients and research study participants I work with- there are lots of options to suit your likes as well, get ready to supercharge your metabolism first thing in the morning!
