Question???


Okay . . . so today, I had planned to talk about "meal prep" . . .


But . . . a good "question" came up about yesterdays post and "PATTERN EATING".


And this was the question . . .


"Why should we . . . "NOT" . . . have "CARBOHYDRATES" for "breakfast"??????


Well . . . LISTEN UP PEOPLE . . . because this is "important" . . .


When we consume "carbohydrates" . . . like pastries, pancakes, muffins, toast, hash browns, granola bars, breakfast bars, etc . . . in the morning . . .


This turns the most "important meal" of the day . . . into a mood destructive, sugar craving and fat storing meal . . which continues and sets the mood for "ALL" day.


You see . . . eating "carbohydrates" FIRST thing in the morning . . . effects key hormones such insulin and cortisol . . . and therefore . . . has a correlation with excess body fat storage.


Now . . . the hormone called "Cortisol" . . . which is the "STRESS" hormone . . . and the "BELLY FAT PRODUCER" . . . "normally" increases in level . . . during the early morning hours.


And reaches its "peek" amount in the body . . . about 9 am


Now remember . . . this is "normal"


But . . . now add to this heightened level of "cortisol" . . . "carbohydrates"


And this will "INCREASE" spikes of "glucose" . . . meaning the hormone "insulin" goes "WILD"


This now . . . sets the day up for "failure" and "CRAVINGS".


Another issue is this . . .


When we have "spikes" in "glucose" levels" . . . the brain "releases" high levels of the chemical called "dopamine"


And if you remember . . . "dopamine" is the "ADDICTIVE" and "FEEL GOOD" chemical in the brain that "PULLS US TOWARD" . . . "GUILTY PLEASURE FOOD" . . . "ALL DAY LONG"!!!!


And with this . . . it makes us want to "overeat" and consume some form of "guilty food" every few hours.


And as I've said before . . . "eating" every few hours . . . "NEVER" . . . gives the "PANCREAS" a "break" from producing "insulin" that helps to digest our food.


And with this . . . we're just setting ourselves up for "type 2 diabetes" down the road.


Okay . . .so eating in the proper "pattern" . . . as I stated in yesterday's post . . . will correct the body's "internal dialogue" . . . and therefore . . . stop "craving" and "weight gain".


So if you forgot . . . here's my "pattern eating" formula again.


Okay . . . so "pattern eating" . . . is a "pattern" of "WHEN" to eat "specific" types of food . . .like this . . .


"Breakfast" - a "protein" . . . a "healthy fat" . . . and a "green leafy vegetable"


"Lunch" - a "protein" . . . a "healthy fat" . . . a "green leafy vegetable" . . . a "compliant" fruit


"Dinner" - a "protein" . . . a "healthy fat" . . . a "veggie" . . . a "compliant" complex carbohydrate


And tomorrow . . . we'll talk about why eating "carbohydrates" for dinner is "important"
