Q

If I know I didn’t get enough sleep the night before, what should I eat for breakfast to avoid fatigue and the cravings for junk food that comes with it?

A

Most important, is to avoid caffeinated drinks – they fool your brain into thinking you’re full of energy, but they’re effect is short-lived and you’ll soon feel a slump. Start with a breakfast high in protein like eggs, a protein shake or even chicken or fish. This will help you feel fuller and more energised for longer, minimising your chances of snacking on unhealthy foods throughout the day.
