One of the BEST Breakfasts to Eat for Proper Elimination and a Toned, Muscular Body

No, the best breakfast isn’t eating a cow, or any other meat. It’s whey protein!

Whey protein is ‘the ideal morning fuel’, says Dr. Joseph Mercola, who operates one of the most popular websites on natural nutrition and overall wellness.

He writes in his April 27th post that ”a recent study published in the Journal Medicine and Science in Sports & Exercise, demonstrated that consuming whey protein (20g protein / serving) 30 minutes before resistance training boosts your body’s metabolism for as much as 24 hours after your workout!”

This is important information for women during their perimenopausal years who want to preserve or increase their muscle mass, keep their weight down, ensure their thyroids are functioning well, stop their insulin levels from spiking, and protect their hormone levels.

It’s thought that the amino acids found in high quality whey protein activate certain cellular mechanisms which promote muscle protein synthesis, boost thyroid, and also protect against declining testosterone levels after exercise.

Dr. Mercola says ‘carb loading’ to fuel a workout is a mistake, especially for athletes doing intense strength training, because they’ll burn carb fuel very quickly and then “hit the wall.” The same goes for most people who start their day with muffins, bagels, or pancakes, a breakfast that starts a vicious cycle of hunger and snacking on more carbs. “And, writes Mercola,  ”the more you continue eating these carb snacks, the more insulin resistant you become.”

Dr. Mercola quotes diet and exercise book author Ori Hofmekler who recommends having a post-exercise recovery meal of a high quality whey protein shake 30 to 60 minutes after strength training.

Dr. Mercola says “whey protein yields the fastest nutrient delivery. It will only remain in your system for 15 to 30 minutes, so it’s very easily digestible and assimilated—providing you with the highest amino acid score than all protein foods. And incredibly, it also gives you a great energy boost without overspiking your insulin.

Yet another benefit of whey is that it promotes production of satiety peptides which help maintain your testosterone and thyroid hormones at healthy levels.”

While there are many sources of high quality whey protein on the market, Isagenix produces one of the best. It contains 23 g of whey protein derived from grass-fed, non-hormonally treated cows, minimally processed in order to preserve beneficial  key amino acids and nutrients.

“Most commercial whey products are derived from pasteurized dairy and processed with heat and acid, which destroys the whey’s fragile Immuno components and damages important amino acids. Many of them also contain chemical additives, detergents and artificial sweeteners, which are known for their health shattering effects. And contrary to popular belief, artificial sweeteners actually sabotage your weight loss efforts by impairing your ability to regulate your appetite naturally,” explains Dr. Mercola.
