Breakfast is important, but not the most important meal. It's a personal preference. Proteins and healthy fats can stabilize blood sugar early.
What would you suggest for those who dislike eating first thing in the morning?
Healthy habits should work for you, and breakfast is no exception. Prioritize protein and healthy fats for your first meal, even if it's non-traditional. Focus on quality ingredients that make you feel good.
Is 'calories in, calories out' a myth? Should you eat less calories than you burn to lose weight?
Calories matter for weight loss, but the type of calorie is important too. Eating a calorie deficit of candy may work, but it's not sustainable or healthy.
Smaller, frequent meals or three square meals for a healthy lifestyle?
It depends on how you feel, but snacking can lead to unhealthy choices. Grazing throughout the day is healthy too, but be mindful of sneaky foods.
When cooking meals, plan ahead and put together a plate of crudité to snack on so you can still have an appetite for meals with loved ones.
Is it necessary to take supplements for good health or can we get the same nutrients from whole foods?
Supplements are unregulated and can be risky. Look for reputable sources. Vitamin D and K are great supplements as most of us can benefit from vitamin D.
