Breakfast is quite literally, breaking the fast.
When we wake in the morning, our blood sugars are low and in order to have the energy, focus and all else that we require for the day ahead, a nutritious breakfast is crucial.
For anyone struggling with over-eating or making less-than-ideal food choices, breakfast is your best friend so please don’t avoid it.
Or worse still, be tricked into thinking that skipping breakfast means a healthy weight.
Skipping breakfast looks like this...
Fogginess, dulling of the senses and often very distracting hunger.
With your body in such a state, work, kids, phone calls or missed buses can become all too much to handle. No wonder!
Then in order to sustain itself, your body sends signals to your brain - locate food immediately.
Except that it’s food with super fast converting energy that you’ve essentially forced your body to require and consume at all costs. Most often this looks like demolishing a refined sugar and over processed muffin by 10am or chocolate and coffee by the truckload.
It doesn’t need to be this way.
Instead how about feeling clear and energised upon waking each day? Excited about enjoying a delicious breakfast and seizing the day ahead.
Breakfast is the difference here.
