SWEET ENOUGH

Real People - - HEALTH HAPPINESS -

EGG-CIT­ING IDEA: On av­er­age, we eat three times more su­gar than we should, putting us at risk of obe­sity and type 2 di­a­betes. But break­fast could be key in re­duc­ing su­gar in­take. A study by the Univer­sity of Mis­souri found eat­ing a pro­tein-rich brekkie, like eggs, could re­duce sweet crav­ings later in the day by sta­bil­is­ing the brain chem­i­cal dopamine, which is linked to our su­gar con­sump­tion. EX­TRA TIP: Take a brisk 15-minute walk. Sci­en­tists at Aus­tria’s Uni of Inns­bruck found that a walk will re­duce su­gar crav­ings.
