Breakfast was two strawberry-filled doughnuts. I needed something quick, so I downed the pastries in my car on the way to work. Feeling full and high on sugar, I tackled my inbox with gusto. But by 10am, my gut was grumbling again – and lunch was hours away.
It was nothing like the previous morning, when I made an egg and cheese sandwich on wholewheat toast. Even though that had about 200 fewer calories than my doughnut binge, it kept me full till 1pm. Both breakfasts were satisfying – at the time.
