Breakfast – The Most Important Meal of the Day

How do you start your day?

By having the same cereal each morning? Or is breakfast little more than a slice of toast?:
Breakfast can be the most enjoyable, energising and versatile meal every day of the week.

With a cup of coffee while missing breakfast because you don’t have time to eat?:
When every minute counts in the morning, you need a tasty and nutritious breakfast that takes just seconds to make..

Your breakfast may appear healthy, but is it really giving you what your body needs in the morning?:
A breakfast packed with the right nutritional mix helps you stay healthier so you can continue doing the things you enjoy.

What do nutritionists recommend for breakfast?

“You need a good source of complex carbohydrates and sufficient protein, vitamins and minerals to get your day off to the best start. The Herbalife F1 shake contains an excellent balance of high quality protein, plant-based carbohydrates, vitamins and minerals.”
Luigi Gratton, M.P.H.,Vice President, Worldwide Product Marketing, Herbalife.

Healthy Eating Plan

A healthy eating plan gives your  body the nutrients it needs every day while staying within your daily calorie  goal for weight loss. A healthy eating plan also will lower your risk for heart  disease and other health conditions.

A healthy eating plan:

  • Emphasizes fruits, vegetables,  whole grains, and fat-free or low-fat milk and milk products
  • Includes lean meats, poultry,  fish, beans, eggs, and nuts
  • Is low in saturated fats, trans fat, cholesterol, salt (sodium), and added sugars
  • Controls portion sizes

Calories

To lose weight, most people need to reduce the  number of calories they get from food and beverages (energy IN) and increase  their physical activity (energy OUT).

For a weight loss of 1–2 pounds  per week, daily intake should be reduced by 500 to 1,000 calories. In general:

  • Eating plans that contain  1,000–1,200 calories each day will help most women lose weight safely.
  • Eating plans that contain  1,200–1,600 calories each day are suitable for men and also may be appropriate  for women who weigh 165 pounds or more or who exercise regularly.

If you eat 1,600 calories a day  but do not lose weight, then you may want to cut back to 1,200 calories. If you  are hungry on either diet, then you may want to boost your calories by 100 to  200 per day. Very low calorie diets of fewer than 800 calories per day should  not be used unless you are being monitored by your doctor.
