Most important meal of the day

I have heard so many people say they save calories by not eating breakfast. When your mom told you that breakfast was the most important meal of the day she wasn't lying. Your body has been fasting for 8-10 hours (sometimes longer) as you sleep. You need to refuel it to get it started.

I always used to think breakfast make me hungrier and I used to skip it when dieting. I don't know how I did it as I am always starving when I wake up now!

I thought everyone knew this by now. I used to skip it all the time too. I don't anymore. I know that when I eat breakfast my metabolism gets started again. I need my metabolism to get started because that is how we burn calories.

Aboutme, you would think so, but so many people I know still skip it. I have found that it actually keeps me from snacking myself into a coma over the course of the day. I am not as hungry at other meals.

Gets the metabolism going even if it's something little, I was so surprised that I lost when I ate 3 meals over 1 meal and a bag of crisps again! A habit I need to get back into... breakfast

I might do! I'll have to have a look in superdrug at them! I think most of them aren't vegetarian, so I'll have to go through the labels with a fine tooth comb

I just have to agree with this. You know how it always goes. Eat like a king for breakfast, eat like a prince for lunch, and eat like a pauper for dinner. You will only sleep after dinner, anyway. Besides, you will need the energy for the rest of the day.
