Why eating breakfast helps balance hormones [& a killer omelet recipe]

The other day I caught up with a new client.

Two months earlier, she had started on my

hormone-balancing program. And boy, was I surprised when I saw her face.

She was beaming.

She had lost 12 pounds in the matter of eight weeks.

Her hair had stopped falling out.

And she was just glowing.

So what was the big change?

Before I go into that. Let me give you a little background.

This gal is in her mid 30s. She’s a beauty, but wow, she was really dragging when she first came to see me. She has two kids, a helpful husband, but even with all the good things working for her, she was feeling overwhelmed and starting to look a wee bit haggard.

Yes, we had gotten her taking some high-quality whole-food concentrates, but here was the big kicker.

She started eating breakfast! Yep, that’s all.

This dedicated momma had been so busy feeding her family, dogs included, she didn’t get around to breaking her own fast until 10:00am or so.

Big mistake.

Studies have shown that skipping breakfast has a big wallop on blood sugar levels, weight gain, and even brain function. The study results hold true for children, adolescents, and adults of both genders.

Eating a healthy breakfast is especially important for women who want to balance their hormones naturally. Stable blood sugar equals happy hormones.

To start your engine without burning it out, choose breakfast foods that include protein, fats, and slow-metabolizing “complex,” or fiber-rich, carbohydrates.

Here’s one of my weekend favorite recipes, one that I make when I have the time to sit back, relax, and watch my kiddos play.

But before I share, I’d love to hear from you in the comments section. Do you have a go-to breakfast that gets your engine running for the long haul? I’d love to hear all about it.
