People ask me all the time to give them a diet menu for breakfast. So, here’s a quick list of 15 healthy and lean breafast choices to get and/or stay lean. Increase the quantity if you need too. However, it’s best to eat small frequent meals throughout the day.

Well, I hope this gives you some ideas of “get lean” breakfast ideas. Do you have to always eat all these types of foods. No, you can eat your standard cheerios, waffles, etc…but you must watch your calories. Plus, like I have voiced in most of my diet blogs, ” It all depends on your goals!”. If you want to get real lean, then you’ll have to sacrifice not eating processed baked goods and most foods that are high in sugar,fat and salt. You can get healthy, lean and fit by making smart choices.
Please note: protein bars are not a source of quality protein but just a glorified candy bar. Your better off with an all natural oat or nut bar.
Please give me some of your favorite “get lean” breakfast samples. I’d like to see them.
