WHAT DO YOU TAKE FOR BREAKFAST?



CARBOHYDRATE BASED BREAKFAST


In the morning simple carbohydrates (sugary, white breads etc.) cause and immediate surge of blood sugar level which results in substantial emission of insulin. The insulin removes sugar from blood turning its excess into fat.   The result is a decreased level of blood sugar and thirst for more carbs. This cycle repeats itself 2-3 more times during the day. This vicious circle constitutes one of major reasons for diabetes, high blood pressure and extra weight

SKIPPING BREAKFAST

When you skip breakfast, blood sugar drops below the normal level, you experience cravings and drop of energy. You again revert to simple carbohydrates  (soft drinks, cake, white bread etc.)to achieve a quick surge of blood sugar and to overcome hunger and drop of energy


PROTEIN BASED BREAKFAST
Such a breakfast supplies our body with all vital nutrients and energy without increasing blood sugar and insulin levels. It helps  to avoid dependence on carbs during the day.  In this way, appetite stays under control, cravings for carbs (snacks, chocolates, junk soft drinks, etc.) diminish and the body uses its own stored fats to get more energy
