One of the easiest, simplest things you can do to improve your health is…

Eating a healthy breakfast.


There are many reasons:

1) It provides you with lasting energy.

2) It jump-starts your metabolism, which causes your body to burn more fat during the day.

3) It decreases cravings for junk food later in the day.

So, what foods should you eat?

It’s best to eat foods low on the glycemic index, which produce long-lasting, “high-octane” energy.

These foods include:

Apples, Eggs, Cottage Cheese, Dried Apricots, Grapefruit, Milk, Nutrition bars (most), Oranges, Peaches, Peanut butter, Pears, Plums, Prunes, and Yogurt.

Try this and see if it helps your energy levels:

Alternate between two different breakfast selections. On one day, eat a whole-grain cereal with skim milk and some yogurt. On the other day, eat a smoothie consisting of protein powder, skim milk, a banana, strawberries and/or blueberries.

Avoid (like the plague) bagels, donuts, pancakes, waffles and sugary cereal.

In the next few days, I’m going to recommend a book for you that goes into much more detail about energy management. It’s one of the best books I’ve ever read.

For excellent health,
