    I rarely ever eat breakfast so this will be something I may gave to try to do. When you say you add power greens with your open faced omelet, what greens are you using? Things like Kale or Spinach? I’m making an assumption that these are power greens since I’m guessing that means they have tons of nutrients without a high caloric count.

      An awesome question! Thanks for pointing that out, haha. I use Earthbound Farms Power Greens mix — you can check that out here: http://www.ebfarm.com/products/salads/deep-green-blends-power — it’s a mix of kale, spinach and chard. You can usually find them below (or somewhere around) the pre-packaged salad mixes. They basically give you Hulk-like strength, so I think that’s why they’re called power….but it could also be the nutrients 😉 It’s definitely an awesome blend!

    Well, who knew!? That was a great article. I was happy to see that I am currently practicing one or two of your recommendations already. But the coffee trick is something wild, and I need to check it out!

    I’ve been using coconut oil for months now as a moisturizer, but now I’m going to take your advice and try it with cooking.

    Is it possible, however, that you can overdo it a bit if you throw eggs AND lean meat together in one meal? Sure, you’ll stave off hunger, but that’s a lot of protein to churn. And a nutritionist once told me after your body burns off all the protein it can handle, the “unused” protein turns directly into fat… or at least this is how I remember it.

    Thanks!

      You are absolutely right Diana — it’s a TON of protein to go through, and it’d be a pretty hearty breakfast to put down, especially for people who are used to eating lighter in the morning. I try to get in between 160-190g of protein each day, because of the way I exercise and my body weight, so I can use all the extra protein I can get, haha. The big three macro-nutrients we look at are proteins/fats/carbs. These make up your caloric intake for the day, so – I believe – any excess calories you have not used in a day, no matter which source they’re coming from, will be stored. So it’s important, depending on your goals, to determine what your calorie intake needs to be in order for you to cut weight, maintain your weight, or gain weight.

      I would definitely be interested in hearing what the nutritionist has to say about this though – maybe I’ll learn something new! Thanks again for the great comment!

    I really want to try the coconut oil coffee with cinnamon.
    It sounds and looks really awesome to start the day.
    I actually eat eggs for breakfast everyday and eating them make me feel good and provide energy for at least have a morning.
    I really will buy the ingredients to make that coffees you suggested.
    Thank you
