Christine's fat-burning breakfast ideas and peach parfait recipe

3 Fat Burning Foods for Breakfast

 

1) Greek yogurt-

A recent study from the University of Tennessee at Knoxville found that people on a low-calorie diet that included yogurt lost 61 percent more fat overall and 81 percent more belly fat than those on a similar plan but without yogurt. 

 

2) Nuts and Seeds-

A study at Georgia Southern University found that eating monounsaturated fats found in nuts and seeds increases calorie burn for up to 3 and a half hours!

 

3) Fresh Fruit-

Eating a properly balanced breakfast that includes protein and low glycemic carbohydrates (unrefined, unprocessed) such as fresh fruit three hours prior to exercise may help burn more fat suggests a study from the Journal of Nutrition.

 

Try Christine’s Raspberry Peach parfait.  It’s made with Greek yogurt, pumpkin seeds, fresh peaches and raspberries.

I really get my hackles up when people (like Tony Horton) talk about women "letting themselves go" after they get married.  It has been my experience that for some of these women, their focus shifts from taking care of themselves to caring for their husband and eventually their children.  While it is certainly an unhealthy pattern, with women now a solid part of the work force, they are still expected to put dinner on the table when they get home and raise a family, increasing their burden and leaving less time to take care of themselves.  So BOO to men who think women are sloughing off.  Their workload has GROWN and until men alleviate some of that, women are doomed to bad habits as a shortcut to relieve some of the pressures that have been loaded upon them.
