Tweaklet #5 – Breakfast: Savoury or Sweet

If you prefer a sweet breakfast please, I implore you, stay away from sugar cereals and pastries. Try Berries which are low in fructose so are a good low sugar fruit option and contain many phytonutrients.

Savoury breakfasts are a better option for most people however as they get blood sugar more balanced, which means less cravings and a more even delivery of energy throughout the day.

Scrambled eggs or an omelette are good options, if eggs agree with you. You can add fetta and olives for some healthy fat that keeps you feeling fuller and add in any green vegetables, like spinach and perhaps some peppers to spice it up.

But if you really love sweet, then try making a buckwheat pancake. Buckwheat is a seed and not made from wheat, so there are no issues with gluten, and makes delicious pancakes. Adding some maple syrup, which is a natural sweetener, makes a good topping.

You can work out what naturally suits you by noticing which type of breakfast gives you the best energy levels during the morning.

Tweaklet #4 – Savoury Oatmeal

If you know you have a sweet tooth then having something sweet for breakfast can get your cravings started and your blood sugar balance on a roller coaster so there’s a strong argument for having something savoury for breakfast.

Research even suggests that if you have trouble going to be early or getting to sleep then it could be because you eat more sugar and fat than you need to. Tweak this balance and your metabolism will t thank you and your internal body can reset itself.

So think about starting the day on a savoury note. If you are an oatmeal lover then make a savoury version. Sound weird, well hear me out.

To your plain oats add one tablespoon of ground flax, and your favourite spice blend – think garlic powder, ground ginger, paprika, and turmeric. Then add a little milk or a non-dairy milk like almond or oat milk for a dose of protein. You can also add in grated zucchini for volume and extra fiber and top with a fried egg for extra protein.

Worth a try hey?

Tweaklet #3 – Coffee shrinks breasts

Coffee drinkers beware! No don’t worry, I am not going to get after you about caffeine (not in this Tweaklet anyway), but a study of 300 women conducted in the UK raised concerns about coffee skrinking their breast size! Yikes!

The study examined the effects of the stimulant on hormones and concluded that Women who drank more than three cups of coffee a day had breasts an average of 17 per cent smaller than those whose who drank less than three cups a day.

And men before you think you’re off the hook, the study also showed that coffee has an impact on the male sex hormone testosterone.

You know the tweak here….drink less than three cups of coffee a day folks!

Tweaklet #2 – Super Shrink me!

Let’s talk caffeine! Actually, today, let’s just talk about coffee. Today is not the day to get into the debate about the pros and cons of drinking coffee nor about how much coffee is too much.

Today’s tweaklet is simple – instead of super-size me, when you order your coffee or make your own, think super shrink me! Just have a smaller sized coffee.  And for those of you who love all the foam and syrups and things, when you try Super Shrink Me, as well as drinking less caffeine, you’ll also be having a lot less of all those fattening extras.

I know that sounds ridiculously simple! But it’s a tweaklet, just a small adjustment to try that could really make a big difference to your health, your weight and your piece of mind!
