Wake up and smell the proof: People with a history of skipping breakfast have larger waists- by nearly 2 inches- than those who eat breakfast in the morning, as researched by the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition. Pass on breakfast and you may overeat later as the study warns. Over time, this can cause you body to store more fat. Shoot for 20 to 30 grams of protein at breakfast.
Ma! Where’s my Protein!!!!
Eggs – 6 grams of each
bacon, sausage, cheese, ham – 2-7 grams of protein per slice/link
milk- 8 grams per cup
peanut butter – 4 grams per tbsp
many whole grain cereals – 6 grams or more per cup
Protein shakes - On average, 25+ grams of protein (more if mixed with milk)
Though they took their information from the Journal article mentioned, I sourced this from my monthly subscription to Men’s Health magazine…love this magazine!
