Breakfast vs fasting

Do you breakfast or do you fast? I personally find breakfast vital for a productive day and have witnessed a positive response when introducing a consistent breakfast routine with clients in a clinical setting – especially for those who experience anxiety and / or anxiety surrounding food choices. 🌱
The theory in particular with those who experience food anxiety is that we initiate a positive start with food first thing in the morning, rather than letting them drag the first meal out to mid morning or later in the day (eg with intermittent fasting) when the mind can lapse into ‘control state’ over food. 🌱

Creating a morning routine, inclusive of breakfast has in my experience as a nutritionist been a powerful change to not only implement a healthy diet, but promotes a healthy mind too. 🌱

A morning routine could include very simple practices – glass of water to rise, cup of tea rather than coffee and breakfast of some sort -quick and easy or prepped the night before, so there isn’t anxiety around ‘choice’ first thing in the morning. The less decisions to be made first thing in the morning the better. 🌱

So if this rings close for you, try to make a simple change this week and have a small amount of breakfast each day and track the difference (you can write a small note in your diary). 🌱

Really – what have you got to lose by taking just one small step?
