The name "Breakfast" says it all. All those hours of sleeping are a time of fasting for our bodies, and by the time morning rolls around it is time to "break the fast" and kick start your metabolism for the day. Eating breakfast helps in losing weight and actually lowers the risk of obesity! By simply eating breakfast you increase your metabolic rate, which results in burning about 5% more calories.
A good breakfast also provides your body and brain with the fuel needed to function properly. Make sure your kitchen is well-stocked with plenty of healthy food choices you love.
Try for some protein along with the usual breakfast carbs. Don't foget to drink plenty of pure water as well - dehydration is no way to start your day.
