Do you feel hungry all the time? I can sympathise, my friend. I get it.
It was 11:30am. I could hear my stomach whispering angrily, before rising to a deafening roar. “FEED ME ALL THE JUNK FOOD”, it bellowed.
I looked around, wondering if anyone had heard this grumble. “Shh, you’re embarrassing me”, I hissed angrily to my abdomen.
But my stomach did not listen. Without realising it, it had directed me downstairs to the convenience store, and shoved a bag of chips and a chocolate bar into my hand.
I wish I could tell you I had the self-control to refrain from eating all the junk food I had purchased. I will let my silence on this topic be answer enough.

What I will say though, is that it was precisely at this point that I acknowledged my eating habits needed a bit of an overhaul.
I took to the internet to find a solution and found, surprisingly, that my breakfast routine may be to blame.
I found that hunger throughout the day may be caused by too much sugar and carbs. So apparently my jam on toast was not so great after all. If I thought deeply about this, I may have come to the same conclusion. I suppose up until then I didn’t really want to know the truth.
Luckily, I also discovered that there are many delicious alternatives that can keep you much more full throughout the day, and have the added bonus of being good for you.
This is a wonder food. Scientific American claims that this food makes you feel full because of dietary fibre which your body can’t digest as quickly as other kinds of fibre. They also claimed it had other things that made you feel full, but it sounded complicated and I tuned out.
