Eat soon after you wake up…

Saturday! Yeah! But since we booked tennis, I had to get up at 8:30am (haha, not too early, but it’s Saturday). Anyway, my bf was smart, he had a few crackers and a small can of tuna before tennis, I didn’t have anything since I was afraid that I might get stomach cramp due to exercise.  But 30 mins later, I regret for not having any food— hungry!

Later I turned to Google to check if having a bit food before exercise in the morning is good or not. To my surprise, some information I got changed my old perception. To help to metabolism waking up in the morning, the earlier you have breakfast, the better. So even you exercise in the morning, better have something small before, then formal brekkie after. Hmmm, have my bf read about this?  I don’t think he is that attentive, his practice only relies on his natural body needs, but he is absolutely correct on this point.

A lot of my colleagues only have breakfast after they get to work.  That will be about 1.5-2 hours after you wake up & getting close to lunch. So the suggestion is: taking some small thing with you, like a banana or yoghurt to eat on the way.  And have more things when you reach the office.

This way will help you keep weight balance and good for skin as well.  Win-win! 🙂

      That’s awesome, Jenni. Yes, something easy and light, if you are not used to it. Slowly, you will find that you feel much better! 🙂

      Cheers
