Eat breakfast. At this point, just eating breakfast at all may be change enough for some of you.
Remember why it's called break-fast: you are breaking a fast. For most of us, that means we have not eaten anything for 8-10 hours, so blood sugar is very low. Can't concentrate in your morning class? Perhaps it's because you haven't eaten! Getting your blood sugar up to functional levels will help you think more clearly, manage your cravings throughout the day, and prevent the urge to gorge when you finally do eat.
So eat something, preferably soon after you wake up. For now, especially for those of you who usually skip breakfast, it can be anything. Bland is fine if this is new to you. Keep it simple: cereal, a banana, yoghurt, granola bar, or a protein shake.
For those of you who already eat breakfast, try adding or increasing the amount of protein you eat at breakfast. Add a hard-boiled egg or two, or throw in some protein mix to your morning smoothie.
More on breakfast later!
We'll all be together in HRH this week. Thanks!
