After an early morning Zumba dance class today, I decided to eat a more generous portioned breakfast than I have been eating on the other days when my fitness workout is more Pilates based.
.
However lets call this brunch as I waited 16 hours from my last meal of yesterday to 10am today to eat.
.
This is my intermittent fasting regime where I wait 16-18 hours between dinner and breakfast. I then squeeze the only other meal of the day into a small window of time before 6pm again. .
This is my easy to do solution to an ongoing lifestyle weight maintenance ( NOT diet) when I know I am going to need to be feeling and looking my best.
.
And this is how I help my clients when they want to lose weight and have been historically unsuccessful over the years with yo-yo dieting.
.
Its not calorie restrictive, however it is restrictive on cutting out all sugar, white simple carbs like potatoes, cakes, pastry, pasta, and most wheat and grains.
.
There is sourdough toast in my photo today but sometimes a little of what you fancy is better than denying yourself and craving it. .
And yes,  I did put butter on the toast too as eating some healthy fats will satisfy and help you feel fuller longer.

Sometimes a little of what you fancy (a slice of granary seeded toast) when your daily diet is wheat free, is better than denying yourself, craving it and then succumbing and binging

My healthy version of the ” full English” breakfast

My healthy version of the " full English" breakfast.

Complex carbs take longer to digest than simple carbs helping you to feel fuller longer with less blood sugar spikes keeping your energy levels constant. Especially when you got up to work at 5.30am and feel like you've had a whole day by midday! 
2 organic eggs (protein) fried in Waitrose bought organic butter, ( good fats) organic multigrain and wholewheat bread ( complex carbs) from the local bakery.
Streaky Duchy of Cornwall free range bacon ( protein)
Wilted spinach ( great spurce of iron)
Avocado (oddly it's a fruit and is also full of good fats )
Some fat in your diet is good for you and also helps you feel fuller longer. .

Breakfast for three on the beach- my human, her friend and me

Breakfast for three on the beach- my human, her friend and me. 
My human's breakfast is the healthier one of the two on the table with the poached eggs(protein) with smashed avocado(good fats) on granary toast(complex carbs-low glycaemic index that helos keep blood sugar levels more constant) and crispy bacon( protein). And an Espresso coffee 
The other is eggs Benedict (white muffin-simple carbs-not so good has a high Glycaemic index which creates blood sugar spikes) hollandaise sauce-eggs and olive oil protein and good fats if made with extra virgin olive oil- not made with a mix of processed and refined oils). And an Americano coffee. The black expresso is a better option. .

My home-cooked meat-free veggie Bank Holiday weekend cooked breakfast

My home-cooked meat-free veggie Bank Holiday weekend cooked breakfast.

Eggs from the local farm shop chickens, seeded wholemeal bread from the Island Bakery with rather a generous spread of organic butter, wilted spinach, beef tomato slices, avocado and mushrooms.

I always eat breakfast or brunch straight after working out, or doing any fitness or exercise.  Healthy mix of carbs and protein and good fats. .
