Waiting too long to eat

Woman eating her breakfastMake time for breakfast every morning and commit to eating something every two or three hours after that. Include a mix of “good” carbs (like whole grain or fruit) for energy, and protein to slow digestion and prevent those emotional highs and lows. Otherwise, when your blood sugar dips too low, the lack of fuel to your brain can make you unfocused and cranky-and more likely to toss back a snickers after a unpleasant comment from a co-worker.
