― This typical office worker’s breakfast seems to be very nutritious and has plenty of heat. But somehow, this hearty breakfast does not allow many people to support it at noon. After research, nutritionists at the British Food Council found that the cause of the increase in hunger was black tea and coffee.
Sun Meifang, director of the Nutrition Department of Shanghai Ninth People’s Hospital, pointed out that both of these foods contain caffeine, which can stimulate the adrenal gland to produce adrenal hormones, which can make people excited in the short term and seems to be full of energy. However, with the decline of adrenal hormones, the body will soon return to fatigue, and people will soon feel hungry.
Experts believe that people should guarantee 1.5 to 2 liters of water a day, but tea and coffee have a diuretic effect, so it does not effectively help the body to replenish moisture. Therefore, for office workers with tight life rhythms and high work pressure, it is best to drink less black tea and coffee for breakfast.
