It all started when I watched this video:
Maybe someone in the past had told me to skip breakfast for this reason or that. But this one was totally different.
Cynthia Thurlow goes on to explain that having a very small eating window naturally helps reduce calorie intake. I’ve been trying it now for two days… The first thing I noticed is that I wasn’t hungry…Probably because I wasn’t eating, starting that feeling of needing to eat constantly through the entire morning. I’m also usually pretty busy in the morning so I don’t notice if I’m not eating as much as I would if it was in the afternoon or the evening.
The second thing I noticed, is that I didn’t feel gassy or bloated or Burpee right away in the morning.
Let me back up a second.
My morning routine, “even when I’m on a diet,” starts like this:
1. wake up
2. read my Bible
3. drink a cup-o-coffee
4. start to feel gassy, bloated, and burpee right away.
I’m going to continue to give this a try because so far I just feel better in the morning. Maybe I’m not starting my “metabolism” first in the morning but I feel much better already.
The third thing I’m noticing is that even if I try really hard to eat more, I just can’t. There just isn’t enough time from 11AM-7PM to eat that much food. This would show, that what Cynthia Thurlow has said about reducing caloric intake naturally, just happens.
Oh and one more thing.
I have a really bad habit of not brushing my teeth every morning because I’m drinking a cup of coffee and getting ready for work and then drinking another cup of coffee and blah blah blah…really bad habit. So, because I’m drinking a cup of coffee at around 5 AM in the morning, and then not eating breakfast, it’s much easier to brush my teeth. It’s obviously a much better routine than my previous one.
I also noticed that when I brush my teeth in the morning, I definitely do not feel like eating.
