National Nutrition Month: Tip #22

Eat breakfast!!! People who don’t eat breakfast are 4.5 times more likely to be overweight than those who do. In fact, some research suggests that people who start their day with a 610 calorie breakfast actually eat less calories overall. That is a big breakfast! But the take home message is to move up those calories rather than eating your biggest meal right before you sit on the couch or go to bed. You need those calories to fuel your day, not your night.

If your not hungry for breakfast, you could be eating too much too late at night the night before. You also need to get into the habit of eating breakfast before you will be hungry for it.
Stay tuned for my favorite breakfast!
