Drop Weight by Eating This at Breakfast

You can drop weight and reduce fat without ever counting a calorie or stepping on a treadmill.

It all depends on what you eat first thing in the morning. You can program your metabolism for the rest of the day.1

When you eat a high-fat breakfast, it turns on your fat-burning metabolism. You’ll drop fat off your body and use up the calories you eat for the rest of the day.

But if you eat a low-fat, high-carb breakfast, your body will hold onto fat, and your appetite will increase.

Your bad cholesterol goes up, along with your triglycerides and blood sugar. It sets you up for diabetes, heart disease, and stroke.

And this metabolic maladjustment occurs independent of how many calories you eat or how much you exercise.

I’ve been following this research in the International Journal of Obesity. Before now, no one has looked at the timing of your meals and how it affects your weight and your health.

It’s something we should know instinctively. Nature didn’t intend for you to eat breakfast out of a cereal box.

Your ancestors thrived on foods like eggs, meat, and fish. This is what gave them power, strength, and vitality.

I remember staying at my grandparents’ place when I was a kid. I’d wake up to the smell of steak and eggs and race down the stairs to get my place at the table.

Your grandparents ate this way, too. It’s much better for you than what the media wants you to believe.

Today, you’re brainwashed by commercials for low-fat granola, Cheerios, and Special K. You think you’re eating healthy products because they tell you it’s “high-fiber, whole oat, and whole grain wheat.”

But all those low-fat carbs throw your metabolism out of whack. And eventually, your health will suffer.

To help avoid that, I recommend you eat a solid, high-fat breakfast. You’ll feel good all day with no mid-morning and mid-afternoon crash. You’ll think clearly and have plenty of energy. You won’t be as hungry, and cravings will seem to vanish. You’ll notice it’s easier to drop weight, and you’ll feel like exercising again.

So, put down your cereal spoon and grab a fork. Give this a try for the next few weeks. See how much better you feel and how your health improves.

To get you started, here are two of my favorite breakfasts you might enjoy:

1. Fried eggs with a side of steak: Look for cage-free eggs at the grocery. They come from antibiotic-free chickens raised in a natural, healthy environment. Fry them in organic butter.

Make sure to buy grass-fed beef. Animal fat is good for you, as long as it’s from disease-free livestock that haven’t been injected with hormones or fed antibiotics. Stores like Whole Foods carry it, or see if your butcher can order it for you.

If you gravitate toward bacon, remember this is a highly processed food. So look for grass-fed and a brand that doesn’t contain nitrates. They cause cancer and changes to your DNA.

2. Cheese omelet with salmon: Look for 100% organic cheese. Get it from grass-fed cows if you can. You get none of the hormones and antibiotics and far more nutrients. Buy wild salmon instead of farm-raised. It has no dyes, less toxins like PCB’s, and higher levels of omega-3.

To Your Good Health,
