Books like The 4-Hour Body suggest high protein breakfasts within 30 minutes after waking. Some suggestions equate to 30 grams of protein for breakfast. Most people tend to eat carb-based breakfasts or worse…skip breakfast. Breakfast breaks the fast, tells your metabolism to get moving, gets your brain moving, and keeps you full so you won’t eat as much at lunchtime. The right breakfast can regulate appetite, boost metabolism, and help you burn fat.
Here are some suggestions for high protein breakfast foods you might want to integrate into your menu:
- High fiber / high protein cereal
- Cottage Cheese
- Turkey Bacon or Sausage
- Nut Butters
- Protein Shakes
- Whole Grain Bread
- High protein cereal / breakfast / meal replacement bars
Consider using a calorie and nutrition calculator to help you measure how much protein and how many nutrients you’re getting at each meal. Have you got ideas for high protein breakfasts or other high protein meals? Please feel free to share in comments!
