What do you usually eat for breakfast? Do you like to eat bread, toasts, bagels, muffins, pop-tarts, pancakes, waffles or commercial breakfast cereals?
Do you find yourself suddenly tired and hungry, and searching for a snack in the middle of the morning, way before your lunch break?
Your mood may change at this time. Maybe you feel anxious, irritated or angry (“hangry”).
All of these are symptoms of a sugar crash, and that’s because you have eaten mainly refined carbohydrates for breakfast, which causes your insulin secretion to shoot up and drop quickly not long afterwards.
This kind of sugar crash, if repeated over a long period of time, wrecks havoc to our metabolism and could lead to insulin resistance, which is a leading factor behind developing Type 2 Diabetes and other metabolic diseases.
If you can relate to the above symptoms of a sugar crash and wonder what you should have for breakfast, please check out my video below: http://bit.ly/erc_video_bf_sugarcrash
One of my suggestions for a quick-and-easy way to enjoy a well-balanced breakfast is to drink a protein smoothie with fruits, vegetables, blood type-specific protein powder and good fats. You can download my “Eat Right Chef Protein Smoothie” recipe here: http://bit.ly/eatrightchef_smoothie
