How are you starting your day? Is your go-to a granola bar or a bagel as you run out of the house? (Carb focus) Eggs or egg muffins? (Protein/fat focus) Or do you opt for coffee to hold you over until lunch?
Next, how does that food make you feel? Satisfied or starving by the time lunch comes around? Do you fight cravings all day?
Making a change to Breakfast (yes, it’s important to eat something) can set you up for the day ahead. But you have to pay attention!
Experiment with your breakfast
Day 1 bagel
Day 2 eggs and a piece of bacon
Day 3 oatmeal and a hard boiled egg
Write it down. How was the rest of the day? When were you hungry? What were you craving?
Then evaluate and adjust!
A breakfast with balanced macronutrients that is low in sugar should keep you satisfied for 2-3 hours. You may also notice that you don’t crave as much sugar and processed foods if you kick the day off with whole foods! – Coach Jess, Renaissance Nutrition
