How to power up your breakfast

You can never run short of the number of people who go about their days without having breakfast and thinking that they are doing their bodies a huge favour in the process. Over time there are a lot of people who have been of the idea that they do not need breakfast at all, and that if they ever get to eat anything in the morning, they can only have a slice of a fruit and they will be good to go. When you are so keen on some of these individuals, you will come to realize that they are on some fad diet that makes them think it is okay to not have breakfast, and you wonder who came up with that diet in the first place. Breakfast is a very important mean and you should never skip it. There are so many reasons that have been fronted as to why you need to make sure that you have your breakfast every other morning. You can be sure that these reasons are not just mythical or other kinds of truths, but they are simple reasons that are backed by scientific proof, and it is because of this that breakfast is as a matter of fact the most important meal of the day.

In the event that you are a bodybuilder and you are into the habit of skipping breakfast, I have one question for you, why do you want to kill yourself? Someone once demystified the meaning of breakfast to me and it made a lot of sense. They asked me to look at the word as break-fast. The point that they were trying to drive home was that the body had been fasting for around 8-10 hours depending on how much sleep I was getting, and when I woke up in the morning, it was time to break the fasting, hence breakfast. Though that was just their opinion, it really made a lot of sense to me.

When you are asleep the nitrogen balance in the body normally moves from positive to negative. The balance is normally sustained when there is an equal amount of nitrogen in the body from protein intake and a similar amount being lost through excretion. When you have a negative balance, you have to understand that this is normally associated to loss in muscle, while a positive balance on the other hand is associated with growth in muscle. Therefore when you are sleeping, the metabolism processes that go on in the body normally turn catabolic, and this is a situation that no bodybuilder worth their salt would ever want to be caught up in. This is particularly so in the event that you are hoping for some serious muscle growth.

By the time you wake up in the morning, a lot of the nutrients that the body had when you went to sleep are probably depleted and it is because of this that you have to make sure that you provide the body with something more to boost the metabolism through a good breakfast.
