Having breakfast actually helps wake your body up and kick-starts your metabolism! Feeling hungry early on in the day depends on the type of breakfast you have had. If your breakfast includes a good source of fiber such as whole-grain cereals or whole-wheat bread, then you’ll probably feel fuller for longer.Keep in mind though that it’s normal to feel hungry after 3 to 4 hours from having breakfast and here comes the importance of having a healthy snack to sustain you till lunchtime.
On the other hand, if you skip breakfast, your body will feel hungry without you knowing it, and by mid-morning, you’ll tend to reach for anything near, which will probably be an unhealthy snack. And if you make it till lunchtime, you’ll probably over-eat and have a larger portion than you should.
The best solution is having a healthy breakfast that helps you feel satiated, such as a glass of low fat milk with whole-grain cereals and a piece of fruit or a glass of low fat milk with a whole-grain cheese sandwich and vegetables.
