Starting off the day with a processed carb/sweet breakfast makes me crave sweets ALL DAY LONG. So, no more pre-sweetened cereals for me, no donuts, white toast or bagels, etc.
But, whole grains, like oatmeal, or proteins don't trigger the cravings. So, I make sure I have at least some protein for breakfast, like milk with my oatmeal, eggs.
Ironically, artificially sweetened foods, even things like yogurt, trigger sugar cravings also. So, once I've cut those out of my diet, the cravings disappear.
