Check out this Weight Watcher’s article about fueling up in the a.m.
“Eating breakfast is like filling up a gas tank. When you wake up in the morning, your body is low on fuel, like a car running on empty…A morning meal can kick-start your engine by giving your body energy…skipping breakfast may make you more likely to overeat later in the day to make up for the missed meal.”
What I really liked is their suggestion for current non-breakfast-eaters: ” If you can’t stomach much, try a few grapes or a wheat cracker and half a glass of juice. After a few days, your body might naturally look forward to this a.m. fuel-up and you can try more substantial meals.”
Have you noticed any differences in your overall daily hunger or fitness when you started eating a regular breakfast? What tips would you share with those who don’t currently eat breakfast? What are your favorite breakfast ideas? What about ideas for those who are rushing out the door in the morning, ideas for quick grab & go breakfasts?
