Did You Know That Breakfast Helps Stop Sugar Cravings
Eating a healthy breakfast can refuel your body, and help you to eat less later in the day. When you skip breakfast, you are more likely to overeat later in the day. Consuming a healthy balance of carbohydrates, fat, and protein can fill you up, and satisfy your hunger. For myself, I love a nice Orgainic plant based protein shake made by ORGAIN. i usually add frozen banana and berries. I make some really yummy peanut butter oatmeal cookies and use a healthy no calorie sweetener called SWERVE that taste and looks just like sugar. 2 cookies is a serving. Oatmeal is a blood sugar stabilizer and will make you feel satisfied for a very long time.
Eating breakfast can help get your day off to a good start and help you stay energized. When you sleep, your digestive system slows down. Many people eat lightly or skip food completely in the morning, eat heavier in the afternoon, and finish off with a big dinner (and dessert too). There is a problem with this strategy as it deprives you of food when you need it the most, which is in the morning. If you skip breakfast, your body stays in this slower state, slowing your metabolism and leading to weight gain.
Eating breakfast can help to jumpstart your digestive system. Consumer Reports agrees with the benefits of breakfast, stating, “Eating within 2 hours of waking can make a difference in the way you metabolize glucose, or blood sugar, all day. Your glucose level rises every time you eat, and your pancreas produces insulin to shuttle the glucose into your cells, where it’s used for energy. Research is finding that keeping glucose and insulin in the right balance has important effects on metabolism and health.”
Breakfast is not just an extra meal. It serves several purposes in maintaining a healthy lifestyle.
BE A BREAKFAST CHAMPION! YES, YOU! Try to eat at least 1/8 cup of raw oats per day before 1:00 in the afternoon to make you feel satisfied and avoid any cravings for sugar.
