Happy New Year! This is a time of year when most Americans resolve to lose weight, manage debt/save money, get a better job, get fit, eat right, improve their marriage, better quality time with family, read the Bible, get a better education, drink less pop, drink less alcohol, quit smoking, reduce stress overall, take a trip, or volunteer to help others.

Living “bodyrite” has become a common household phrase in the BodyRite community. My clients know that I am all about lifestyle and “walking the code” as I call it.

I just know I've been served food where breading and gravy and garnish is hiding a base that is dry and tasteless.

The breakfast is called the most important meal of the day for a reason. What you eat and how much you eat in the early hours sets the tone for the rest of the day. And yes, you should, indeed, eat a breakfast like a king.First things first: never skip a breakfast.
