I struggle with over eating my delicious breakfasts as I usually am not as hungry as I would like to be, any advice?

I premake my breakfast the night before, always the same size, then I eat it without thinking the next morning. To buzy to figure if I am full or not. Just doing my habit and my body thanks me 🙂

I’m not an expert but I think having smaller portions more frequently is feels healthier you should talk to your doctor and maybe not make high calorie breakfasts in the American tradition and look to
Colin O.
Try to eat light in the mornings, so that you get enough energy, but you don’t eat too much. I usually eat porridge in the mornings.

Make something appetizing to take with you on your way out the door like a baked oatmeal cup and eat it when you are able. Or just prepare something small in advance the day before so you don’t have to think on it. Or just grab some nuts from a jar and eat a couple before you brush your teeth.

Appetite suppressing drugs, phentermine is used exactly for that purpose. Also antidepressants Wellbutrin and cymbalta have appetite suppressing effect
Johanna S.
It is because you need to adjust your eating capacity and you are use to over-eating. Try to decrease your food amount by a small degree. And only prepare food that you're gonna eat unless you're with other people (Just seperate yours in a plate/bowl).

Also eat slowly and drinking water helps before eating gets you full faster.

Try something small. Train your body to expect a small breakfast. Try a small cup of yogurt, or a piece of fruit. Gradually, over a few days, try adding an egg or granola.
Kelly Z.
Eat a smaller breakfast rather than a bigger one, but still make it healthy! For example, try a handful of almonds and an orange. Good luck!

If you continue to eat breakfast every morning, your body will get used to it and soon you will be hungry in the morning.

My understanding from researchers is that lack of appetite for breakfast in the morning is often a sign of eating too late the previous evening. This is a problem I struggle with, and my goal is to finish eating earlier in the evening so I can enjoy a good appetite for breakfast the next morning. Hope that is helpful!

Try with something small. Then, you may add things little by little. Passing from zero to full breakfast in once it's difficult. Take your time, you will understand the importance of breakfast when you will be used to it. Good luck with your journey 🤗

start off small. you don't have to have a big breakfast. as long as you are in the routine of doing it every day consistently
Galaza Z.
If I don't feel hungry in the morning I pack a small sandwich and a light snack in my bag for work, then delay eating until 9:30-10:00 in the eh em. I check my habit once the food is packed.

I would suggest making sure that you have low carbs and sugars in your breakfast (even fruit). Focus on eating protein, fiber and fat with the least amount of carbs possible. This will keep your blood sugar steady, which will sustain you for longer and will reduce over eating.
Emma Z.
Breakfast doesn’t have to be huge. Try avocado toast or a hard boiled egg. Maybe a small protein shake. Something is better than nothing!
Slavko O.
Bear in mind that breakfast is the startup gasoline for the day, better to have protein and healthy inputs for your body
Liam A.
You have to listen to your body. For some people it is better to eat six small meals throughout the day, than three big ones. That method might work for you. If you're a stress eater or eat when you're bored, try to remember that drinking water will help curb that longing. Also, food higher in protein keeps you full longer.
A healthy breakfast can be something as simple apple slices and a hard boiled egg. If that's all you can eat, that is fine. Just be sure to have healthy snacks in your purse, backpack, desk, car, etc. so that you can maintain your energy during the day. 🙂

Hi yes, I know this can be hard at times. My advice would be to portion your breakfasts ahead of time. For example making a smoothie with fruits and peanut butter or overnight oats. I would look up recipes that are only 1 serving size. And go from there. Even if you prefer to make breakfast fresh in the morning just look up recipes that are for one person so you don’t make too much food which will temp you to eat the leftovers.
Astrid Z.
Do what Fabulous always suggests – start small. If you go to the effort of making a great breakfast and can’t eat it, you’re demotivating yourself. Dial it back a bit.
Livia E.
Try exercising before breakfast. The workout is good for your overall health, give you greater alertness and a healthy appetite after the refreshing shower.
Daryl J.
I can't personally relate as I am always hungry in the morning but from what I've seen from people who are not morning people or do not have an appetite in the morning was simply getting into the habit (ie: just eat no matter what so that your body seeks it after a while) and also finding a type of food that works best for them (provided it is nutritious). Once they get into the rhythm, they end up eating more
Kasper Y.
Eat less then. Have two small breakfasts. Make it a hobbit thing. Meals are arbitrary. Listen to your body and it’s needs. You and your life is not defined an app.
Malou C.
If you're a coffee drinker, I would recommend cutting back on or eliminating, if you can, drinking coffee or other caffeinated beverages as a way to jump start your day. Sometimes if I'm not hungry right away, I'll do 7-8 minutes of some blood-pumping physical activity and that usually helps (eg: dancing to some music). Also don't eat too close to bedtime. Doing these things consistently over time will eventually lead your body to expecting and wanting nourishment in the morning. Experiment with different breakfast options. For example, maybe drinking a healthy smoothie might be easier than having to eat your breakfast.

Recently I learned about intermittent fasting. You might give it a shot. Although I’m not using it as they suggest rather my last meal is at 6 pm. I make sure that I eat a lot because I’m kind of skinny, but I don’t eat anything after that until next morning at 8 am.
William S.
If you are not hungry, it’s okay. In fact, it’s better that you’re paying attention to your body and your hunger level. You have a couple options: You can give yourself a half an hour or more to let your body wake up and realize it’s hungry and then eat your breakfast. You can split your meal into two smaller ones and eat a little until you’re full, and then finish later. You can also decide to practice intermittent fasting and add your ‘great breakfast’ to your afternoon routine. Do what feels like it is the easiest for you to do on a regular basis. Good Luck!
Joey W.
Your body will get used to eating in the morning. Decide what you are going to eat for breakfast in advance and prepare only that amount
Kenzi J.
I tend to split my breakfast up into breakfast and a snack when I'm not too hungry. I eat until I'm full (the eggs or meats) and save the fruit and toast for a snack before lunch. Sometimes, I'll have a nice fruit and yogurt parfait that doubles as breakfast and a snack. Best advice: eat a small meal, and stay nibbling throughout the day, it helps me since I'm not usually hungry too often.
Adrian O.
i love to over eat often times too. I find making sure i am drinking water especially like a cup a little before i eat and if i’m only making breakfast for myself only making one serving so i don’t make extra and then eat it.
Jennie W.
Whenever u feel craving for delicious food,intake water as much as you can. If still craving exists grab some fruits/nuts/yogurt etc. Fristly I will be hard to choose healthy snacks instead of delicious junks,but after 1 week of hardwork u will be habituated. Trust me.
Good luck
Friedbert C.
I find that if I ate small the night before. I was more hungry and motivated to eat when i awoke. I also found that if I started with a small breakfast it was easier to get my self to eat. Over time i ate better quality and amounts. Think banana or apple ans peanut butter. A hand full of nuts or granola. A boild egg and cheese. It got me started and still gave me what I needes to power through the morning. Just have a morning snack planned to kill the hungry around 10.
Denise B.
I usually take some time before eating…wake up and have some water. If i dont feel particularly hungry i find a healthy breakfast smoothie hits the spot. It has all all the good things you need to start your day with feeling like a huge task or something you have to have all at once. I can drink my smoothie in a calm slow fashion and i find it does a good job of filling me up. Its really easy to find heaps of energy boosting smoothie recipes online. If that isnt your thing yogurt and museli or ganola is also delicious and quick combination! Hope this helps
Alberto U.
I struggle with breakfast too! Breakfast does not have to be a big meal-I always felt like I was failing when I didn’t do well with breakfast because I wasn’t hungry. Then I realized that’s ok! Try a cup of yogurt with berries, and I like slivered almonds on there too. Yummy! And a great protein start to the day 🙂 I have better luck if I decide on it the night before. Some other go to bites for me
-cocoa dusted almonds
-an egg with toast or an avocado..or both
-dices sweet potato (maybe 1 cup) with an egg on it or a little sausage mixed in
One thing I’m trying right now is intermittent fasting, which I am loving! There is evidence that it’s good for your longevity and all that; for me it’s about establishing better eating habits. I don’t graze anymore, and I put more thought into the nutrients (and how tasty) my meals will be.

Good luck my fellow Fab!

Have an orange or a yoghurt instead and have a large, delicious lunch instead. The breakfast doesnt have to be big, it just has to get you started for the day!
Maddison Z.
When I'm not hungry but still want to take care of myself and my morning routine, I make a bulletproof coffee. That's coffee with either butter or coconut oil. It keeps you feeling full, but it's not heavy.
Corey E.
I am not a health expert but it seems to me that you are just now getting on track with regular meals in the mornings. Maybe you could try giving yourself smaller servings when you your food on your plate, and if you’re still hungry after eating that, add another small serving on your plate.

By giving yourself just a little serving to begin with and only adding as you feel you are ready to eat more until your appetite is satisfied, that’s how I think you can solve your breakfast problem.

Adri O Z.
Try and chew each bite 30 times. It is very difficult at first as I swallow food whole some times. This worked for me really well. Try by taking a bite and separating it into 2 parts in ur mouth. Chew 10x the. Sot the l
Rest in half and chew again 10x each. Even if the food is gone..move ur mouth the full 30x. It has been proven over n over to work but noone knows about it.
Universina G.
drink plenty of water. gradually increase the water and reduce the food. the size of the stomach. reduce portions, but increase the number of meals
Camila S.
Drink some water beforehand and get up just a little earlier. Eat until you're satisfied, don't feel forced to eat too much/too little. Try to stay away from unhealthy foods such as Nutella etc.
Olivia Y.
The best advice I would give is to prepare smaller portion. Or ask somebody to prepare smaller portion for you.
If you find yourself in a situation you have a full plate in front of you, you already lost.
Another possibility is to skip breakfasts as it was confirmed by the research it is not that important.
Oliver U.
I find that if you have a lot of grains and seeds in your bread and perhaps eggs, cheese or other protein rich foods you don't have to eat a lot to feel full, and the feeling will last longer.
Jimmie U.
I too love eating a big and amazing bre akfast.My advice would be to take control of your hunger. You cannot let it control you. If you are not hungry you have to force yourself not to keep eating. If that means you waste some food, then so be it. Nothing is more valuable and expensive than your health.
Eddie Z.
What helps for me is having something small for breakfast, like a piece of fruit, some nuts or a cracker. This helps 'wake up' my system. Usually I get hungry about an hour or two after this and then I will have a more energizing meal.
Roberta W.
Try intuitive eating. It sounds very cliche, but slowing down and tasting each bite of food might help your body register when you’re eating and when your full. I just downloaded this new app called Peace With Food that helps you track when you’re hungry and when you’re full. It will also track when you’re extra hungry and when you’re extra full.
Jack T.
Eat it in bits, for example, first some yoghurt and a hour later a banana. And drink some hot tea whit it that helps me stir my appetite.
Connor S.
Start with a piece of fruit and yoghurt the key is to build a habit so don’t force it. I find eating early the night before helps too
Wade E.
Plan out what you're going to eat ahead of time, then you can make sure it fits within how much you want to eat for that meal and it can still be something you look forward to.
Clarissa Z.
A small breakfast is always a good idea if you think you will overly do it. It’s best to use small plates and bowls(controls portions). And eat about 5-6 small meals a day instead of three big ones! My email is [email protected] if you have questions! I used to be a health coach!
