I realize that eating in the morning is not everyone’s cup of tea, and you might not even have the time as you’re running out the door. However, taking just 10 minutes to load up on some healthy options has proven benefits for your weight-loss and overall health.

Those who skip breakfast are more likely to

●      have slower metabolism

●      be overweight

●      eat more calories throughout the day

●      be in a worse mood

●      develop diabetes, heart disease and high cholesterol

●      feel fatigued and be less productive throughout the day

Does that not sound so good? I would think not! Let’s make a healthy habit change that will help with weight-loss, your overall well-being, and mood!

How does eating in the morning helps you lose weight, you might ask? The answer is simple! See, waking your digestive system early kick-starts your metabolism, so you burn more calories throughout the day. Also, eating a little something in the morning is more likely to keep you full until lunchtime, so you won’t reach for snacks. Breakfast doesn’t have to be a sophisticated meal, either! Oatmeal, fresh fruit and vegetables, hard-boiled eggs, yogurt, and whole wheat toast are just some of the quick choices that will seriously help your weight-loss.

Still don’t believe me? Try having a full, balanced meal within 2 hours of waking up and see the difference for yourself! Pro tip: use BetterMe meal plans for healthy, nutritionist-certified breakfast options.
