Good Morning from Steviva Brands, Inc.,

Skipping breakfast is never a good idea… especially if you want to lose weight and stay healthy. It may sound funny, but research shows that eating more helps you lose weight. People who consistently eat breakfast lose more weigh and maintain the weight loss longer.

And why not! After a full night of fasting, your first meal sets your metabolism humming, starts that engine up, provides the fuel you need to stay alert and perform your best. Kids who eat breakfast do better in class and adults perform better on tests and have better retention and performance too.

Low glycemic foods form the core of the Atkins, South Beach, Zone Diet and the Perricone Nutritional Facelift Program. These programs avoid high glycemic refined carbs in favor of whole grains, fruits and vegetables, and lean protein and healthy fats. Protein and fat provide satiety, and you’re less apt to succumb to cravings and you will be sustained longer into the day.

If you’re in a rush, and don’t have time to cook, hard-boiled eggs are ideal. Prepare in advance, and eat with a little salt and pepper. They’re highly portable! Enjoy your hard-boiled eggs with some fresh tomato salsa or the bottled kind, but read the label to be sure there’s no added sugar.

I really can't emphasize enough how important it is to increase your water intake as you increase your proteins. Your liver and kidneys will thank you. What I suggest is adding the juice of half a lemon to 32 ounces of water with a sprinkle of Steviva Brand Stevia Powder. Aside from being less than 2 carbs, you will get the health benefits that the stevia provides along with the vitamin C and electrolytes that lemon have. You can substitute limes for lemons if you get bored. Click here to order stevia powder.
