Healthy breakfast for athletes
Regardless of the type of sport, great performance requires a healthy breakfast! We support the body by choosing a healthy meal in the morning. This applies for everyone, especially the physically active. Healthy breakfast helps to increase physical performance, as in the morning our body and brain need food.
You’ve probably heard countless times that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. This means that we can consume more calories for breakfast compared to the other meals. A large enough calorie intake for breakfast speeds up our metabolism, which means that we will burn more calories during the day and promote fat elimination. Breakfast should consist of quality protein, complex carbohydrates, healthy fats, fibre and vitamins and minerals.
What breakfast to enjoy before an exercise?
Take time and enjoy breakfast that will give you energy for the new day. Breakfast before physical activity should provide carbohydrates, which are body’s primary source of energy. It is important to choose those with a low glycemic index that prevent possible fluctuations in blood sugar levels, which can result in nausea and dizziness. Carbohydrates make physical activity easier and more efficient.
Protein is also important as it takes care of the growth and maintenance of muscle mass. Additionally, proteins regulate blood sugar levels, which is extremely important. This prevents hunger pangs during the day. With a constant sugar level, it is easier to avoid unnecessary snacks between meals.
Dietary fibres are important for a long-term feeling of satiety and better digestion, so every breakfast should have at least five grams of fibre.
Avoid sugar or replace it with coconut sugar!
Avoid sugar for breakfast, as this will only stimulate the pancreas to secrete more insulin. If you take care of a sugar-free breakfast, you will notice that you are more calm, have more energy, and are amazingly more focused.
It is important to have a breakfast on time, as the point of breakfast is to wake up the metabolism, so the rule is that breakfast should be eaten no later than an hour after we get up. Only in this way breakfast will have a beneficial effect on our body.
Wholesome grains are a good choice!
One cup of whole grains will provide you with all the necessary nutrients that will give you energy for an active start to the day. But be careful which ones you choose! It is important to choose organically grown, unprocessed whole grains and without added sugar. Only whole grains contain cereal husks, which hide vitamins and minerals, and also support the digestion and prevent blood sugar fluctuations. Cereals have carbohydrates, in which a small amount of sugar is naturally present. The problem often lies in processed cereals that contain an unhealthy amount of added sugar, so be careful when choosing.
