Hi there! Do you skip breakfast sometimes…or all the time? Well, it may be doing you more harm than good. A couple of years ago, I used to skip breakfast all the time and unfortunately it only did me harm… My digestion became sluggish and I understand now my body would go into ‘fight or flight mode’, holding on to excess calories from other meals I ate because my ‘primal body’ thought it was starving each day. Not good.
To cut a long story short, my appetite for breakfast went missing in the morning which is how I justified not wanting to eat – but it always came back with a vengeance in the afternoon which would cause me to eat WAY too much food at night. Sure, it was really good, nutritious food – usually a big plate of veggies with protein and healthy fats, BUT it wasn’t a sustainable routine for long term health and weight management. These days, even if I’m not ravenous in the morning, I always find time to eat at least 10g of protein to keep my fire burning throughout the day 🔥
