Happy Healthy Body – Healthy Blood Sugar Levels

Happy Healthy Body – Healthy Blood Sugar Levels

I have repeatedly heard over the years, don’t skip breakfast! Combine that with the recommendation of eating a protein packed breakfast as well. I didn’t understand that reasoning until doing more research on our hormones and weight loss. I learned that when you eat (or drink) protein first thing in the morning, it has a positive effect on your blood sugar levels. It can help set you up for the day by assisting your blood sugar levels (and hormones) to stay within a healthy range. Balanced hormones aid in losing and keeping the weight off. Eating protein first thing in the morning also helps alleviate your hunger, allowing you to stay full and satiated until lunch. I have definitely noticed these benefits for sure. Honestly, I had never paid attention to my daily protein intake before. How about you? I have a couple of good friends who are personal trainers, who seem to always eat a lot of protein, and I thought it was only helpful in building muscle. Dr. Sara Gottfried, who I’ve mentioned in blogs before, says that when “we don’t eat enough protein, we tend to eat more refined carbs or snack more, because we are hungrier. And that women with adrenal dysregulation often don’t get enough protein.” It seems that making sure you get enough protein first thing in the morning has many health benefits. This has been a game changer for me as I now realize I wasn’t eating enough protein everyday for my body’s needs.

Listen to your body and your digestion for what is best for you. I have noticed my body and my digestion have been very happy with my clean protein powder shakes in the morning. There are alot of quick protein packed breakfast options online. Maybe add some savory, warm options for breakfast now that it seems the weather is turning cooler already. It also helps if you can meal prep a salad or bowl with protein added, making it possible to stay on your weight loss game when hectic days happen. I think you will notice that adding more protein works best for you and your blood sugar levels. I hope this will inspire you to not only eat breakfast but make it a healthy, protein packed one for healthy blood sugar levels!
