Wake up with protein and start your day the healthy way. Protein has been
shown to offer a bundle of awesome benefits at breakfast time. As the old
cliché goes, breakfast really is the most important meal of the day and it can
make the difference between feeling full of life and ready to take on the world
or feeling lethargic and low on energy.
Give your brain a boost!
A protein rich breakfast can help support your brain’s ability to communicate
and send messages to the rest of your body, making you feel awake and alert!
So whether you’re up for your morning exercise session or heading to the
office, make sure you give your brain a boost with protein. Our drinks are
super convenient and offer the perfect option to throw in your bag and gulp on
the tube or in the car.
Feel fuller for longer
Protein has been shown to keep you fuller for longer meaning not only are you
getting the nutritious goodness of protein but you’re also less likely to reach
for a sugary cereal bar or unhealthy mid-morning snack. We all know about
the 11 o’clock vending machine syndrome which is the point at which you feel
hungry and low on energy. The natural reaction is to grab a snack from the
vending machine which often turns out to be a chocolate bar or a packed of
crisps! Get your protein in at breakfast and take another one of our drinks with
you for your mid-morning snack and stay out of the vending machine queue!
Lose weight with morning protein
As we’ve discussed, by eating protein-rich breakfast, you will reduce your
temptation to grab a sugary, unhealthy snack later in the day. This can be a
real benefit for anyone who is following a weight loss diet, helping to keep you
away from gorging on foods that contain ‘empty’ calories that offer no benefit
to you or your body shape. Incorporate protein into your weight loss plan
and ensure you consume adequate levels at breakfast and in between meals
to keep you fuller for longer. Uslim offers a high protein drink with vitamins
and minerals along with added antioxidant green tea and green coffee bean
extracts to support a healthier appetite and metabolism.
Avoid the sugar crash
Many so called ‘healthy’ breakfast bars and biscuits are actually not so healthy
when you dig a little deeper! Most contain high levels of refined and added
sugars and low levels of protein that cause rapid and short term increases in
energy levels followed by a crash. These products generally offer no benefits
apart from a short term boost and simply cause you to reach for anything that
will give you a quick burst of energy and we all know that can mean – biscuits,
chocolate, full fat cola…you know what we’re saying….we’ve all been there!
So next time you are planning breakfast, have a think about your protein
sources. We’re here to help you run your day and not let your day run you
which is why our range of functional lifestyle drinks offer you the perfect
protein packed support to keep you on top of your game!
Ufit Breakfast takes the confusion out of breakfast time and offers a
