What I noticed it helps is if you have your last meal before 10 pm, so that in the morning you are a bit hungry.
Hope it helps! Healthy mornings!
I just wait until I get hungry even if it’s a couple of hours after I wake up. I find drinking a glass of water and then exercising will usually stimulate my appetite.
If you’re trying to get in the habit of eating, start small and fast like a granola bar and build from there, or meal prep breakfast to have on hand!
But if I really wasn’t hungry, maybe because I’m sick or because I ate wayyyyy too much the night before, I’d eat a small healthy for breakfast. Half an orange plus a few almonds should still be easy to scarf down.
Hope that helps!
And some apple slices!
Your body will soon get used yo eating at that time and start to expect it.
You should really try to eat anything (even just a couple of nuts!) to get your new habit going. Once your body is used to eating nuts and expects them, you should move to bigger meals (such as an apple) until you are eating a big, full breakfast every day.
But you should fast only with mindfullness and for this purposes. Otherwise I recommend eating breakfast. At least a piece of fruit
Tap water, bottled water, mineral water, or water with added electrolytes. Iced or hot teas. I like Genmaicha “Popcorn Tea” or black coffee, but this AFTER drinking – WATER.
Guess what? It started to make me feel like eating something.
Now, I wake earlier, just to make something to eat. The meal does not have to be complex. Keep it simple and portion small.
In the beginning, you might skip days – this is OK – it gets easier with practice. The repetition is the foundation of a habit – a sort of, “muscle memory” for a good routine.
- 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.
