For EVER, we have been told to eat breakfast immediately upon awakening.
The food marketeers and food companies have ingrained that message into our brain so deeply from the early 70’s
If you listen to your body.
Are YOU really a breakfast person?
Have you had a sneaky feeling in the back of your mind that you are not actually hungry first thing?
But you eat anyway thinking that is the healthy approach.
And as soon as you do eat it seems to open the floodgates to being hungry all day?
Is this you?
* * You are actually not hungry first thing?
* * The moment you finish eating breakfast, you suddenly feel ravenous?
* * Eating breakfast first thing makes you so ravenous that you start eating more food within 20 minutes of having finished eating breakfast?
It is as if I had not even eaten breakfast!
Are you then counting down the seconds until your next meal?
For many people , eating breakfast first thing in the morning is the equivalent of opening
up the floodgates to an all-day snack-a-thon?
Why Does Eating Breakfast Make You Hungrier?
About 20-30 minutes after you wake up in the morning, your blood cortisol levels increase by about 50%.
This is the Cortisol Awakening Response (CAR), and it happens in anticipation of the demands of your upcoming day.
So your cortisol levels rise reach a peak around the same time as you eat your morning breakfast.
This augments your feeding-induced insulin secretion.
In other words, if you eat something during CAR, your insulin secretion is boosted.
The insulin surge is followed by a drop in your blood glucose, with the result being extreme hunger.
This would NOT occur if you ate the same meal later in the day.
Pushing your BREAKFAST or first meal of the day back to a later time can be called intermittent fasting.
You are not skipping a meal you are simply pushing it back to a later time giving your digestive system a break.
There are some amazing studies & research around showing the benefits of intermittent fasting
on fatloss and health in general.
Once You Start, You Can't Stop
If you eat breakfast in the morning, and then you just can't stop eating thereafter, try changing your breakfast timing
AND ensure you eat a High Fat / Good Protein style breakfast.
Salmon, Eggs & Avocado
Eggs (any style) cooked in coconut oil.
Organic bacon & eggs cooked in coconut oil.
Create your own Greens Juice.
Think of it as a healthy fat burning ”brunch”
The fats and protein will keep you going for hours, no need to snack and you feel
alert,energised and on top of your game for the rest of the day.
Three Reasons To Eat Your Breakfast Later
* * End Chronic Hunger
* * Anti-Aging: Fasting allows the body to discard damaged parts of your cells. This is integral to anti-aging.
* * Fat-Burning: Fasting promotes the release of body fat for fuel.
In order to burn body fat, your insulin levels must be very low.
This can be achieved through short-term fasting.
Push your breakfast time later after your overnight fast, and you will finally be able to burn your stored fat for fuel.
Of course no one solution suits everyone and this MIGHT not be for you but if you identify with any of the above then give it a go and see how you feel
