My Handy Tip to Balance Hormones & Reduce Cravings

I’m going to share ONE tip with you that will help keep your hormones balanced and reduce cravings in just 48 – 72 hours.

This ONE tip was a game changer for me in the early days and still keeps me on the straight and narrow. Here it is…

Eat breakfast!

If you can handle a huge protein packed breakfast at that time then awesome go for it but if you struggle to get anything down you at that time of day then try starting with a power packed drink such as an elixir. Elixirs have become a staple in my life, they allow me to fuel myself to get through the crazy mornings of kids & backpacks and school drop offs.

Here’s what a typical elixir looks like for me:

1 cup each of water & unsweetened coconut milk (heated)
1 tsp Matcha Green tea powder
1 tsp coconut manna (aka coconut butter or you can use coconut oil)
1 tsp almond butter (or any other nut butter)
2 Tbsp Organika Enhanced Collagen
1 tsp raw honey
Dash of cinnamon & pure vanilla extract

Add all ingredients to your blender and blend on low for 45 – 60 seconds. Pour into a mug and enjoy!

I often get asked about my daily eating routine so this is what a typical day looks like for me:

  • 6am get up & ready, head downstairs and drink 500ml of lemon water
  • 7am drink elixir
  • 9.30-10 drink smoothie
  • 1pm lunch
  • 5.30 dinner

Having breakfast is a simple tip is something we can all easily do. Eating a breakfast packed with proteins and/or healthy fats or drinking an elixir is like an insurance policy against raging blood sugar levels and surging amounts of insulin (fat storage hormone).

Eating a protein & healthy fat filled breakfast has been proven to:

  • Help balanced leptin levels (hormones that shut off hunger)
  • Keep blood sugar levels stable
  • Dramatically reduce cravings throughout the rest of the day
  • Reduce feelings of hunger causing you to consume less calories
  • And help to speed up metabolism through its thermogenic effects

Try incorporating the above tip and let me know if you notice a difference, I would love to hear from you.
