Breakfast Burners: 10 Easy Breakfast Recipes That Burn Fat During Office Hours

With working hours stretching late into the evening and that crazy early morning commute to work, there is obviously little time for a workout. Instead of fretting over the possibility of an expanding waistline, change the way you eat. Currently, you probably skip breakfast each morning for an 11 AM-chai-and-biscuit, followed by lunch. By doing so, you are inviting trouble because your body when faced with starvation starts building up its fat reserves. Sure, you have heard this argument before. Instead why don’t you settle for these ten easy breakfasts that are put together mainly for their fat burning capacity and to give you an energetic start to the day. They are simple combination of protein, fibre and resistant starches that will burn fat even as you sit on your desk, pounding away on the keyboard. Breakfast Burners, we call them.
