WEEKLY HEALTH TIP #11 - GO NUTS

Posted by

This tip is something that I picked up from a top strength and conditioning expert called Charles Poliquin. He is a firm believer in eating a breakfast that is high in protein and fat, with very little carbohydrates and especially no sugary cereals.

How to do it: Instead of your normal breakfast try substituting it for a breakfast that is high in protein and have a handful of nuts after. It will be difficult at first so maybe just do it 5 days of the week while you are working and save the weekends for what you would like to have. Here are some ideas of foods you can have:

  • 2 x hard boiled eggs + nuts
  • Omelette with spinach, tomato, mushroom + nuts
  • Protein shake + nuts
  • Tuna can, balsamic vinegar, salad, salt, pepper + nuts
  • Chicken breast, cucumber and salad + nuts

I would include most kinds of nuts, such as walnuts, brazils, hazelnuts, cashews, etc. However, make sure that you don't overdo it. They can be quite high in calories so just a small handful of a mix of nuts will do the trick.

I'd highly recommend having a look at the article that he wrote on this topic for more details on why you should do it. Remember, breakfast is one of the most important meals of the day so it's best to get it right so you are firing on all cylinders for the rest of the day.
