Joe Girardi eats the same breakfast, at the same time, each day.
“Egg whites, a little ham and a little dry wheat toast,” the Yankees’ new manager said Monday. “Usually about 6:30 every morning.”
He is “regimented,” Girardi admitted with a smile, yet “I have some flexibility always built into my schedule.”
Smart dude, that Joe. Egg whites contain a ton of protein with almost no fat or cholesterol. And, the ham, well, that’s a high density protein too. Protein keeps your blood sugar stable and reduces cortisol production. (Excess cortisol stimulates glucose production. This excess glucose then typically is converted into fat, ending up as stored fat.) The dry wheat toast is a nice low glycaemic index carbohydrate that helps ensures his brain has a constant supply of fuel.
A much better way to start the day than a bowl of Froot Loops and a Jelly Filled Donut.
