Big breakfast on updays

Hi

All the info here has been so helpful, I thought I'd share this tip for you carb and sugar lovers out there.
I read a book called 'the big breakfast diet' written by a hormone specialist that encourages sweets, carbs, milk and a lot of protein before 9 to 10am-apperently that is when your hormones are most responsive to process those foods.

On down days-I vegetable juice fast mostly -added some lechtin for fat thanks to pirate jenny's advice.

On up days, I get my sweet tooth fix, carb, and dairy fix before 10am-the rest of the day-I eat protein, fat, and produce to meet my up day numbers on days when I don't have family commitments or something that requires eating birthday cake in the evening.

I don't have much to lose, but am struggling with those last 5 baby pounds, but find giving up sweets difficult and undesirable.

love juddd

That is interestng. Maybe that is why I so prefer those items in the evening because they aren't good for me then. Anyone for an ice cream break in the am?

If you ever see the book at your local library, it is worth reading. The author explains the cycle of sugar craving as far as why we crave carb foods at night and how it can be undone. She says -and I have experienced-that if you eat your favorite sweet in the morning-your brains serotonin gets the message to not send cravings out later in the day. It really is true. Plus your insulin receptors work better in the morning than they do at night.

I would only advise doing this on up days when you can couple it with protein and other food.

My problem with this is that if I start my day with sweets, I can't quit. Interesting, though.

Well, I must admit, the UDs I just dive into pancakes and sausage don't seem to be a problem, so this may have merit. Interesting.

I am disappointed in advice from books/doctors that gives time-of-day (o'clock) advice. It should be given in relation to the time of arising, or, how long before sleep that night, that sort of thing.

____ o'clock means two different things to two different people - one is just arising but another's schedule has already had them up for hours.
