It’s true, breakfast is the most important meal of the day. In fact, eating breakfast instead of skipping it can actually help you lose weight. Why?
Well, when you sleep for a full night, your body hasn’t had any calories in 8 or 10 hours, so it’s like a car running on fumes. It needs fuel to get going. (That’s why it’s called breakfast as in, you are breaking a fast.)
If you eat when you wake up, it helps fire up your metablism, allowing your body to burn more energy. Eating breakfast helps you from getting too hungry and overeating later in the day.
If you’re not a breakfast fan, try some of these healthy breakfast ideas:
- Fresh fruit with low-fat or non-fat yogurt
- Unsweetened cereal or oatmeal with low fat or fat free milk
- Whole grain toast with peanut butter
