Sneaky unhealthy cereal that will kill your performance [VIDEO]


We all know that to be at our best performance levels all day, we need to fuel ourselves with the right foods. But many food companies are fooling us by promoting their products as healthy, when they secretly contain performance-crashing ingredients. Stuff that will undermine your energy levels, and even then your mood and decision-making abilities. The very qualities you rely on to keep at top speed on the path to success.

This can start first thing with the most important meal of the day. Early mornings can be one hectic rush, from getting yourself ready for a last minute meeting, to helping other family members arrange their day. So often, the crucial step in looking after yourself by starting your day out with a nourishing energy boosting breakfast gets lost along the way side.

A bowl of cereal used to appear as a safe bet when it came to a wise breakfast choice, however with so many unhealthy ingredients sneaking into the food supply, and many misleading marketing claims, it has made it harder than ever to know which products are actually going to give you a true lift so that you can take on the work day fighting strong.

In this video, Travelling Dietitian, Kara Landau, shares a few key tips to help you sift through the sneaky unhealthy ingredients and find an actual “healthy” cereal that is the perfect break to your fast.

Some of the key points include:

  1. Look for products that contain no added sugar in the first three ingredients, and keep in mind the different terms used to describe sugar rich ingredients.
  1. If sugar is present, ensure that it is only naturally occurring from fruit.
  1. Do not be scared of healthy fats; nuts and seeds contain fats that can help you feel fuller for longer.

With these recommendations and more provided in the video, you will be well on your way to easily incorporating a healthy start to your morning that will see you go from strength to strength at the office.
