When you’ve been asleep for 8 or so hours, you haven’t eaten for at least 8 hours, possibly more like 10 or 11 hours. The best way to break the starvation of your muscles is to have a hearty breakfast as soon as possible as you wake up. Breakfast is the meal to kick start your day with and you don’t want to go too light here.Start the day off right by feeding your muscles so you can have enough energy to power through the day and through tough workouts. Your breakfast should contain a good dose of protein, carbohydrates and fat. Skipping on breakfast could leave you feeling less energised as your day gets going and this will just lead to a total lack of energy as the afternoon comes along. It is often said that for optimal energy levels, breakfast should be the largest meal of the day with each subsequent meals becoming smaller and smaller.
