Are your morning rituals injuring your Phentermine 37.5mg-fueled weight loss habits? They may be without you realizing it. Here, nutritionists detail some habits that add to your waistline:
Looking At Your Phone
“I used to scroll through social media every morning before getting out of bed, but this always caused me to start my day slightly stressed and with low energy,” says Alissa Rumsey, registered dietitian and nutrition therapist. “Now, I never look at social media or check my email until I’ve gotten out of bed and eaten breakfast. Ideally, I wait until I get to my office.”
Failing To Eat Breakfast
“There are differing opinions on the importance of breakfast, but most of the research shows that breakfast shouldn’t be skipped. And even more importantly, my own experience is in favor of breakfast as well. It provides me with the brain energy I need to get started working for the day,” says registered dietitian and culinary nutrition expert Jessica Levinson, RD.
Not Drinking Water
“Water is essential to every cell in the body. When there isn’t enough, body processes become sluggish. Drinking water jumpstarts all of the body’s functions including digestion, elimination, and overall metabolism,” notes Rachel Begun, MS, RDN, nutritionist, and chef. She suggests warm water with lemon or fresh ginger slices if the lack of taste is an issue.
Wrong Coffee Choices
Drinking frozen caffeinated beverages topped with heavy dollops of whipping cream and syrup is an easy way to consume excess calories before your day really starts. Black coffee is much better.
“As soon as I open my eyes, I immediately make a strong cup of organic coffee with a dash of half-and-half that gives me some much-needed life in the morning,” says Georgia Rounder, registered dietitian nutritionist.
