Chocolate

She believes that sugar in the blood may be replaced by other beneficial foods. Consequently, the body will not lack sugar and fatigue will not be felt. It is often because of fatigue that people start eating sweets excessively.

Still, this is only a temporary burst of energy, so one should not give up normal foods (even if you just have a snack in the office). Otherwise, your blood sugar may drop considerably, which causes overeating unhealthy foods. Lisa Guy recommends including protein in your daily diet. In the morning you can eat an egg with toast, muesli with nuts, seeds, yogurt, and fruit smoothies with protein powder. To have a bite, you can have yogurt, fruit, nuts, seeds, dried fruit, protein bar, and hummus. At dinner, the nutritionist advises to eat chicken, fish, lean meat, eggs, salad, vegetables, curries, and stir-fry.

Carbohydrates, which are contained in chocolate, should be replaced for more complex carbohydrates with fiber. The following products contain them: brown rice and whole-grain foods. They prevent rapid absorption of sugar in the blood and help keep it stable. If you do not eat these products, you will have a desire to eat something sweet after each meal. The nutritionist advises taking dietary supplements, which are rich in mineral chromium that helps to keep blood sugar levels.
