Today's nutrition tip comes from Chad Waterbury:
Make Breakfast Big
Eat a large breakfast comprised of carbs, protein, and a little fat. The point of consuming a large breakfast is that it "breaks" the "fast" from an overnight sleep. Upon waking, the muscles are primed to take in large amounts of calories (especially carbs) without inducing high levels of lipogenesis. In addition, a large breakfast will rev up the metabolism for the rest of the day. For breakfast, I prefer a carb/protein/fat balance of 60/30/10. But for those who don't handle carbs well, I'll adjust the number to 40/30/30.
