What you eat, or don’t eat for breakfast, directly impacts your choice of what and how much to eat for lunch. The same holds true for dinner or any other meal. In other words, meals are not mutually exclusive from the stand point of your metabolism. The ability to control hunger, regulate energy and keep cravings at bay is directly determined by your food choices at previous meals. Here is an example: if I wake up in the morning and make scrambled eggs, bacon and blueberries (a favorite breakfast of mine), I find I am more hungry and tend to crave more fatty high calorie foods later. There may be nothing wrong with that choice of breakfast for you. It may actually have the exact opposite impact on you, leading to less chance of cravings and greater hunger suppression. That’s the problem with diets that hand out cookie cutter meal plans and food lists. They will work for some and fail for others. A better approach is to know what works best for you. If I wake up and skip breakfast, or only have a very light breakfast, my hunger, energy and cravings are more in check and my overall […]

5 key laws of metabolism you need to understand   ✅ Compensation ✅ Multitasking ✅ Efficiency ✅ Individuality ✅ Psychic Entropy Let’s cover efficiency. This law says that not all food is created equal in terms of its energy currency. The two most important considerations in this discussion are satiety and efficiency. Calorie for calorie each macronutrient provides more or less hunger suppression, and is either efficiently digested and metabolized, or inefficiently metabolized. There is much confusion over this as blogs and gurus often don’t report what the science says. The science is pretty clear. When looking at isolated macronutrients, the most hunger suppressing, least efficiently and calorie sparse fuels are best for weight loss. From that perspective. the hierarchy goes like this: protein > carbs > fat What this means is protein is the least efficiently digested/absorbed/stored, most hunger suppressing and least calorie dense. Fat on the other hand is the worst in these categories. Once you start combining macronutrients you will see that adding fat to protein definitely adds to its hunger suppressing power. In addition, the fiber component of carbs is also hunger suppressing, inefficient and calorie sparse. Based on these principles this law says the bulk […]
