0:00 Hunger waves
1:20 What happens when you consume too many carbs
2:20 Don’t eat too late
2:35 Don’t consume too much protein

Today we’re going to talk about hunger waves. In the morning, around 8:00 am, you’re going to have the highest spike of cortisol of the entire 24-hour rhythm. At this time, your body is going to start releasing sugar to a small degree. If there is a problem with too much cortisol, it may release higher amounts of sugar.

You may find that around 8:00 am, you feel a wave of hunger. But, if you ignore this hunger, it should go away. If it goes away, then great. If it doesn’t, then you may actually be hungry. Drinking bulletproof coffee can help keep you satisfied so you can fast for longer in the morning.

If a person consumes too many carbs in a meal, a few hours later, or even the next day, they may start to experience cravings. It’s important to drop your carbs and increase your fat so you can fast for longer. You may also want to cut out snacks even if you consume them within your eating window.

If you eat past 7:00 pm, you may be more hungry in the morning. If you can, it may be best to not eat past 7:00 pm. If you consume too much protein, you can spike insulin. This can also cause you to be hungry in the morning, and you may crave carbs. A few more things that can cause your hunger and cravings to go up are poor sleep and stress.

In general, if you experience a wave of hunger, you need to think about whether or not you’re actually hungry or if you’re eating out of habit.
