 Starting the Week with a Breakfast of Champions

Recently I was watching a video of Brian Tracy where he was talking about his morning routine for high productivity and was impressed at some of the similarities that we have.

Namely a good breakfast does make a difference!!!

When I go to various meetings I am always disappointed to see that part of my registration fee is wasted on breads and pastries.  I learned years ago that these things make me want to take a nap, so I avoid them and just stick to my coffee and orange juice and let the rest of the crowd eat these tasty sleeping pills.

My friends all thought that I was full of it with my theory on pastries in the morning until a few years ago when I was speaking with a psychologist about being productive despite my adhd, and he mentioned how important it was to avoid white breads as they have a tendency to block the neurons in the frontal cortex, basically making us lethargic.  He recommended doing what I had been doing, loading up on protein in the morning.

I had learned when I was young that if I really needed to perform, the best thing that I could do was force down a few eggs (when I was young I strongly disliked these things), and soon I was looking for ways to make them more palatable.

I will explore some of my methods of making the bland yet high energy egg a gourmet delight in a few more blogs this month.

Good morning Bob Crane my workouts are first thing in the morning.... I have a protein shake with ice water, banana and protein powder one hour before I lift... and after the workout, I have an apple and two boiled eggs.... that satisfies protein and good carbs....

Good morning Bob. My dad was a bacon and eggs guy every morning for many years. He was always full of energy. Enjoy your day!

Hi there Bob. I'm with you - simple carbs create a bad mental and physical state. I'm a fan of a protein shake in the morning, or 2 eggs with a slice of turkey bacon.

Wonderful food for thought, Bob. I enjoy two breakfasts: a light carb-focused meal (cereal, fruit) so glycogen stores are replenished and available for my workout; and a higher proten breakfast afterward (usually a smoothie or eggs) for amino acids. My energy is pretty good all day.
