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.
