Ever wonder why you feel tired soon after eating breakfast? You’re most likely eating a sugary, low fat, low protein meal. When carbohydrates are eaten alone for example, orange juice paired with a bagel, muffin, toast with jelly, or cereal, it will result in a drastic rise in blood sugar. Yes, you will feel energized for a short amount of time but then you will be needing a nap or even worse, eat more sugar, more cups of coffee..etc to compensate for the lack of energy. This is even worse for coffee drinkers because they’re battling the sugar lows from the food as it is…now they’re guzzling down iced coffees on top of that with more sugar… These constant fluctuations in your energy throughout the day increases your blood pressure, increases your chances of becoming diabetic and will negatively impact your sleep which then leads to hormonal imbalances that effect your mood, motivation to do anything i.e. working out 💪🏻 and lowers testosterone in men. Instead of reaching for a high carb/sugary breakfast that digests very rapidly, opt for a high protein, “healthy” fat and high fiber carbohydrate to keep you full and to sustain your energy all day.
