1. Donuts and Pastries
Donuts are addictive little sugar-bombs that are entirely too easy to eat. They’re practically made for you to binge distractedly whether you’re driving your car or working at your desk.
Make no mistake, they’re simply one of the worst breakfast foods around.
One donut contains about 300-550 calories and it’s jam-packed (sometimes literally) with 30 grams or more of refined sugars.
As such, this small piece of junk food can give you an insulin spike that makes your blood sugar levels surge through the roof.
The resulting blood sugar crash is not pretty, and it’s exactly why, if you’ve had a donut for breakfast, you’re ready for a nap by 11am.
In the long term, this roller coaster sugar surge can create seriously detrimental metabolic conditions. It overworks your pancreas to counteract your high blood sugar levels and the body’s inability to store more glucose because your glucose stores are already full.
This can lead to insulin resistance and long-term chronic illness.
Eating for energy should be your focus, so fight your inner Homer Simpson and ditch the donuts!
