If you are trying to control your weight or lose weight, should you skip meals? NO!! And that goes especially for breakfast! Not only do we need this meal for energy, but breakfast also jump-starts our metabolism for the day and helps to get us on the right track for successful choices later. I always encourage my clients to eat 5-6 smaller meals throughout the day to maintain sugar and energy levels and stabilize their mood. If we allow ourselves to become famished, we may lose all control and eat whatever we can find quickly, and chances are this won't be something healthy! So remember to eat a healthy breakfast every morning, and you set yourself up for success.
