A healthy and nutritious breakfast is the first step to ensuring a healthy and productive day. It is very important to make sure that it is full of quality Carbohydrates, Proteins and Fats. Having a nutritious breakfast allows your body to break the overnight fasting period, speed up the metabolism and maintains blood sugar levels.
Do you have breakfast every day?

How many meals are you eating every day?
Lunch is the meal that a lot of people forget about, but is incredibly important as it sets the tone for the rest of the day. Quite often skipping lunch will lead to a large afternoon meal that can impact dinner. This meal should be very evenly balanced between carbohydrates, proteins and fats. If you make time for a healthy and nutritious lunch, it will give you sustained energy for the rest of the afternoon, and allow for a more productive day.

The final meal of the day, and also a very important one as well. This is the last meal before we go to sleep. When we are asleep it is the only chance that our body has to repair itself. It is very important that we put the right foods in our body to allow for the repair to occur.
