Breakfast | the meal of champions
Wake up your body
Believe it or not, eating actually helps you burn calories. It takes energy to break down and assimilate food into a form your body can use for energy. This diet induced thermogenesis (DIT) accounts for roughly 10 percent of your total daily calorie burn. By eating small meals frequently throughout the day, you can maximize this calorie burn and get your metabolism revving. Start your day off right by eating a relatively low-calorie breakfast high in quality proteins and carbohydrates.
Curb your hunger
Study after study indicates that individuals who regularly eat breakfast are more likely to eat fewer calories and gain less weight than those who regularly skip the morning meal. When you eat first thing in the morning, you curb your hunger and prevent yourself from overeating later in the day. This is particularly true if you eat a breakfast full of fiber, healthy fat and protein. Items like whole wheat bread with peanut butter, an egg sandwich or oatmeal served with dried fruit and nuts are smart and healthy choices.
