HOW TO OVERCOME FREQUENT CRAVINGS
We all have food cravings, some of us deal with them more frequently than others.
Research shows that a breakfast high in protein actually stabilizes blood sugar and prevents hunger for a number of hours.
A Protein-Fat rich breakfast has two other significant benefits besides keeping you full longer:
As we all know, eating breakfast is more than filling the belly and reducing hunger, it’s about nourishing the body and brain. The brain needs amino acids in order to produce neurotransmitters (which are an important part of the brain’s communication system); protein is an excellent source of amino acids. Eating a high-protein breakfast supports brain function and leads to increased alertness throughout the morning.
A high protein breakfast is satisfying to the body. This satisfied feeling helps reduce cravings and snacking. When we eat foods that have little nutritional value (or not enough fat), we are left unsatisfied. This unsatisfied feeling often leads to excessive cravings and extra snacking as we look for satiety.
