How To Avoid Overindulging In Cravings In The Morning

We are all in a constant state of deprivation. Most people don’t know how to deal with that, so they get hungrier. That creates a vicious circle that forces others to eat in order to cope. Don’t live in perpetual deprivation. Learn how to survive that cycle — so you can eat a full, nutritious diet so your body does not become hungry.

It takes a lot of willpower to suppress a craving for whatever you are craving. This is because each day you fail to stop eating, it increases the craving to the next thing and the next and the next. In order to build more self-confidence, learn how to break the addiction to food in the morning.

When You Are Hungry The problem is that your body knows that you are hungry. That’s why it says you might be hungry.

How To Have A Breakfast Without The Carbs (It Takes A Lot of Willpower!)

Your stomach wants to be full, and you actually need something to fill it with before it becomes satiated. This is why it wants instant gratification — it needs something good and sweet. And now, for some strange reason , it is hardwired into your brain to crave sweet things in the morning as soon as ever the morning comes.

Here’s an easy way to break the cycle and get back to healthy eating.

Breakfast:

1 small spoonful of oatmeal, with about 10-20% fat

Oatmeal

The problem is that oatmeal doesn’t actually taste good at breakfast — it is a protein based breakfast that is very high in carbs. So, you don’t have much choice. It is the cheapest breakfast, and it is high in carbs. And if you want something more healthy, feel free to have a cup of oatmeal with milk. But I strongly suggest you avoid anything sweet — no oatmeal (even some dairy based oatmeal will kick you over the head and make you want sweets), and no sugary cereals. This is for your health! You are waking up to a high carb, sugar filled breakfast! You don’t need all those calories. You don’t want to become a sugar addict. The breakfast I recommend is oatmeal, with little added sugar. You can do things like add in some ground flax or hemp seeds. If you don’t want to eat a whole serving of oatmeal, you can use up to ¼ cup (60 grams) of instant oats at the very least or a combination of oatmeal and rice. I would take 2 cups, but for a full serving, you can’t go wrong.

The recipe for the instant oatmeal that I recommend is 

(I am not an expert on this or the brand I used, but I hope this is safe enough for you all. 

You can also add in some seeds, nuts, fruit or nuts) 

4.5 grams of quick oats.

I used 1 cup of Instant oatmeal.

2 tablespoons cornstarch

2 – 3 grams of cinnamon/shredded coconut/chopped nuts as desired

You can either put the cornstarch in the blender or pour it into a bowl and add more of it to your hand. 

Mix it together and store it in the fridge for 3-4 hours.

In the morning on a full stomach, take the leftover mixture out of the fridge and stir it in your cereal as desired. Add 1/2-3/4 cup of milk at this time – depending on how sweet you like your cereal.

The next day, go out and eat in whatever way you prefer — I typically throw it as a snack in front of me for a little bit, but try out this recipe yourself to see what you like (or don’t).
