We know that breakfast foods have been marketed for years of a glass of orange juice and a muffin, or croissant, or god forbid a donut. However, does that directly transfer into a positive performance? NO. NO. NO. Okay maybe.. But still no. what these high sugar breakfasts do is give you a ton of energy for an hour, and then force you to slump just a few hours into your workday, right around the time you go get your second cup of coffee.
When we’re trying to perform at our highest level in the workplace, we need to ensure we are physically satisfied. Meaning, we need to fuel our brains and energy levels to reflect the upcoming day.
The alternative, start your day off with a meal that is balanced in all three macronutrients. Protein, carbohydrates, and fats. A moderate amount of each. Protein will keep you satiated for longer. Carbs will fuel your brain. Fats will help regulate your body’s hormone production.
So what is the ideal breakfast?
One that you will make consistently and enjoy.
Yeah, I hate that answer too, but its the truth.
I’ve been having roughly the same breakfast for years now and its working well for me.
Protein:2 eggs + ½ cup egg whites
Carbohydrates: ½ cup oats + 1 banana + maple syrup ;)
Fats: ⅓ Avocado
There are many options, plug and play one that you will do.
If you don’t have time to make breakfast, try preparing things the night before, it’s not that you don’t have time, you just haven’t come up with a system, yet.
Picture a highway traffic jam, a large backup, tons of brake lights, thousands of people doing the same thing, BUT they are all trying to get to a different place. This is exactly what a commercial gym looks like to me. Tons and tons of people going in without direction, trying to get to a specific place, but they don’t have a map. They just know they want to be there, and they think they have to fight this traffic, read the road signs, panic behind the wheel, and in general; not enjoy the experience.
But what if we had a way to not only give you a map but also provide you with an express pass. All you have to do is tell us your goal destination and we will get you there. Think about all the stress that would be gone from that drive, you wouldn’t need to worry about a map, or read the signs, or be STUCK, you would have a CLEAR path. That’s exactly what having a remote coach is.
You tell us where you are now, where you want to be, and we design the map and drive the car for you, all you have to do is show up.
I hear it time and time again, people don’t go to the gym because they don’t know what to do, or they are stuck doing the same thing, or they're not losing weight because they don't understand the science behind it. With hiring a coach, you will not only be given the map, but you will also have all the guesswork removed for you. It’s just up to you to do it, AND if you struggle with that also, we help you want to do it.
What we want to do is get you to your goal as fast as we can while doing it safely. Why? Because we love results as much, if not more than you do. We want to see change, we want you to be healthy, we want you to be happy. We want you to reach your destination and then learn how to write your own map. We also want you to love yourself.
