Sadly, croissants, sugary cereals, and toast an jam aren’t on the list of optimal breakfast foods to build the ultimate body – read U.P.’s Philosophy on Breakfast to find out why.
There is no one ‘perfect breakfast’ on a body transformation, and it always comes down to what works best for you.
Some of U.P.’s Clients of the Month share what they used to eat for breakfast, and what they changed with their morning meal upon starting their transformation journeys at Ultimate Performance to get such impressive results.
My breakfast wasn’t actually much different before and after my transformation.
My daily breakfast is whole rolled oats with banana, blueberries, and sometimes other fruits. I then top it off with a cup of almond milk.
To help with hitting my overall nutrient goal, I add ground flaxseeds, chia seeds, maca powder, and cacao powder.
As I train in the morning, I also come to my training session with a BCAA and creatine mix in my water.
I experienced the benefits of having a high protein and moderate fat breakfast.
Before, I’d mostly eat carbs, but during the transformation program it was based around protein. I am sure this had an effect when combined with the rest of my meals on my nutrition plan.
Before my transformation with U.P., I always skipped breakfast in the week, opting for a cup of tea.
During my transformation, and something I have continued afterwards, is that I make sure I always eat breakfast.
The EatUP breakfasts make that really easy to do, however, if I am short for time, I will at the very least have a protein shake.
I don’t normally eat breakfast. Instead I usually have a double shot of coffee in the morning to stay awake for the rest of the day.
What I did differently when I started the U.P. program was that I swapped out the super sugary Nescafe double with milk, and started drinking just pure black coffee with no sugar and no milk.
That made quite a big difference in my case because I drink coffee every morning and that used to translate into at least 16g of sugar per serving, seven days a week!
I changed out oats and toast. I basically cut carbs, plus black coffee, and had no dairy.
I felt good. I was less bloated and my energy levels were good.
Breakfast on my body transformation was usually eggs plus some protein. Either smoked salmon, bacon or kippers, plus maybe tomatoes or mushrooms.
During my transformation, I ate a five-egg omelette (three full eggs and two egg whites) with sautéed spinach, and green and red peppers (basically a garden omelette).
This was completely different to what I used to have at breakfast time which was just a coffee.
I was never a breakfast person and, other than a coffee and the occasional croissant, I would not eat anything until around midday.
I never felt hungry before and was simply starving my body, in hindsight.
The first weeks I really struggled to get food down me, but now I need this for energy.
I wake up extremely hungry and need to fuel my body.
Since starting training, there had not been a day when I’ve missed breakfast. My weight has continued to decrease, my energy levels have increased, and overall I feel great. I would tell everyone to ensure they start the day well.
