Break + Fast = Weight + Loss

If you are one of those people who thinks skipping breakfast will help you loose weight. Think again.

A new research study on more than 6,700 women & men found those who ate a morning meal, eat less total calories resulting keeping weight increases down.

What happens when you skip breakfast?
Metabolism slows
Bedtime eating
Increase total daily calories
Increase hunger

Breakfast eaters tend to eat fewer calories, less saturated fat and cholesterol and have better overall nutritional status than breakfast skippers. The next time you skip breakfast, ask yourself "how is this working for me?"

Breakfast ideas?

Oatmeal, cinnamon, walnuts
Granola cereal, yogurt, a sliced apple
Whole-grain pancakes or waffles topped with berries
Breakfast-on-the-run smoothie

A Nielsen's National Eating Trends Survey showed that women who ate cereal on a regular basis weighed about nine pounds less than those who ate cereal rarely or not at all, while men who ate breakfast weighed about six pounds less than men who didn't eat breakfast.
