In a month, I didn't need to inject insulin anymore. In about three months, I went from 228 pounds to 201 lbs. I feel less hungry and more energetic.
I would encourage you to consider changing what to eat for breakfast. Try to eat more protein and healthy fats than you may have. A healthier and lower carbohydrate breakfast may change your attitude about skipping the first meal of your day.
Maybe you could experiment to see what works? What if you track your diet, your feelings and your performance in tasks that matter to you over a few weeks, both with and without breakfast, and see if a pattern appears?
What's really important is that the first thing you eat is HEALTHY. Eating a sugary first meal interferes with your ability to tell that you're full for the rest of the day.
I put 'Eat a good breakfast' in the afternoon routine and set that to when I first eat. Works for me!
Eating cereal, smoothies, pastries, bagels, etc. for breakfast leaves many people hungry again within a few hours or less. Have you tried to eat less low-fiber starches and sugars in the morning? And instead having breakfast foods with lots of fiber, protein and even fat within reason. Those help many people feel fuller longer.
That said, I usually eat breakfast late enough that some might call it lunch. (I have to take medication in the morning that makes me queasy even if taken with food.) I have lost weight since I stopped forcing myself to eat breakfast, and am now at a healthy weight.
You could try listening to your body, staying hydrated in the mornings, and committing to eating a healthy lunch. That strategy helps me feel good and meet my health goals.
Skipping breakfast is also compatible with 16:8 intermittent fasting regimes that require skipping either breakfast or lunch.
You are the expert on you! (You’ll be a more informed expert if you consult qualified sources.) So maybe don’t pressure yourself to do anything (like eat breakfast) that doesn’t feel good and prevents you from being healthy long-term.
I like to have a juice drink or just drink a lot of water. I do have a light breakfast like a yogurt after I exercise. I try to listen to the menu planning that is a part of my regime but I also listen to my body.
Hope this piece of advice helps. Keep the good habit up! Cheers! 🙂
I usually eat oats with milk and some honey since it fills me up and I find it tasty, so I snack less during the day. A friend of mine eats an omelet with greens and bacon for breakfast, which has the same effect for him whilst it makes me eat more.
It's really about finding what suits you best.
That being said, it's hard to exercise on an empty stomach…
I tried it for a while but I feel like I feel much better if I wait a few hours after I'm up.
Everyone is a little different. I have to eat breakfast. I eat a lot early in the day and can get away without eating dinner.
Add a different habit that will energize you and set you into your best state to begin your day strong.
Because of this, I can't skip breakfast. Skipping it will make me not eager to be productive. Yes for wake up early. Yes for drink water. Yes for eating healthy breakfast.
I think that if you just want food food food then you might want to take a look at WHAT you eat for breakfast. As the app sad, there are certain foods that give you a sugar rush, but it won’t be long before it’s gone and you start thinking about eating more sugar.
But I think having energy is better than being used to hunger. So you should eat great breakfast.( sorry for my poor English )
i have my own "hungry hour" :
– in the morning about 6.30 to 7.00 am
– around afternoon about 11.00 am to 13.30 pm
– in the evening around 18.30 to 19.30
that's my 3 times eat and meals per day..
beside that,,i still can eat,,but my body is not hungry at all
Or maybe it depends on what you eat for breakfast? Like if it’s a filling/healthy breakfast or a sugary/carb type breakfast..? Some people find that eating mid morning instead of right away can help or eating a smaller portioned breakfast..?
I’d say: read the letter(s) about breakfast again, trust the science, and find out what works for you. I’m sorry it sounds so generic – but (for me at least) it really did work. Good luck!
I guess there are 2 options:
1. it may feel that way in the beginning but will adjust later on after getting used to eating breakfast. My personal guess and experience.
2. More importantly a good breakfast is not meant as a HEAVY breakfast. Eat light but nourishing.
- Why is it wrong to skip breakfast? I know people who skip breakfast and actually feel better after skipping breakfast.
- I can eat in the morning, but I’m having a hard time eating before going to work because no matter what time I wake up I feel like I’m always running late. I want to eat before I get to work because I want to eat breakfast within an hour of waking up to start my day off right. How do you do it?
- Is eating breakfast the first or last part of your morning routine?
- How do I start remembering things better and feel comfortable with it?
- What are some yummy add-ins that you like to put in your overnight oats?
- Is caffeine okay, or not recommended?
- What do you have for breakfast as a healthy option?
- I have to get two kids (2 and 3) ready every morning and don’t ever feel like I have time to cook eggs for breakfast. What are some very healthy going-out-the-door recipes that take minimal prep?
- Is it good to run before or after breakfast?
- Any small meals that are filling? I’m not very hungry in the morning and don’t know what to eat.
