Weight Loss Tip Of The Day

When it comes to losing weight, breakfast is the most important meal of the day. It makes no difference what time of the day it is. Breakfast is that first meal after you wake up. So, if you work the night shift and wake up at three in the afternoon, your breakfast is the first meal you have after waking.

While we sleep, our metabolism slows down to a crawl. It doesn't start up again after we wake up. It doesn't start up again until the first meal that you eat. That means if you skip breakfast, your metabolism is set on "crawl" all that time. Eat breakfast to wake up your metabolism and get your stored fat burned off faster.

Research also shows that people who eat breakfast eat fewer calories during the day and lose weight faster.

For fastest weight loss, eat breakfast within one hour of waking up and you will speed up your metabolism faster, burn more calories and it will give you greater energy throughout the day.
