When dieting, there is nothing worse than craving something sweet to throw you off track. Luckily for us, Zana Morris, the founder of The Library - London’s hottest gym, has a tip that will help take out the temptation.
The tip is simple: avoid sugar at the start of the day.
Consuming sugar at breakfast can cause an insulin surge in the body that is difficult to stabilize throughout the day. An insulin surge can not only cause the accumulation of fat around the abdomen, it can stimulate the release of another hormone, ghrelin, which can cause cravings and hunger. So opt for healthy breakfast alternatives that are low in both carbohydrates and sugars. Zana suggests things like poached eggs with toasted rye bread or natural unsweetened yoghurt with a fistful of berries.
