2: Avoid a lot of sugars
Delicious such a sweet breakfast only shoots your blood sugar levels up considerably. This ensures that your stomach will be heard again quickly. Not only added sugars, but also fruit sugars fall into this category.

And now suppose you get hungry during the morning, try to drink something first. It may well be that your body does not ask for food, but is thirsty.

If the hungry feeling distracts you from work and a drink doesn’t help, go for a healthy mid-morning snack. Take a banana with a few raw nuts or a cracker with peanut butter and banana and your blood sugar levels will remain fine until lunch.
