Eat Breakfast!

If you want to boost your metabolism and stay slim you’ve got to eat breakfast every single day. If you don’t, your body goes into starvation mode, and your metabolism slows to a crawl. The staff over at Women’s Health has put together their favorite healthy breakfast recipes to make your first meal of the day a whole lot easier!

And the heartier your first meal is, the better. In a study published in the American Journal of Epidemiology, volunteers who got 22 to 55 percent of their total calories at breakfast gained only 1.7 pounds, on average, over four years. Those who ate 0 to 11 percent of their calories in the morning gained nearly 3 pounds.

In another study published in the same journal, volunteers who reported regularly skipping breakfast had 4.5 times the risk of obesity as those who took the time to eat.

Still not convinced? Then check out how tasty these breakfasts look: http://www.womenshealthmag.com/fitness/healthy-breakfast-ideas?cm_mmc=Newsletter-_-05032011-_-Dose-_-MainImage

About notyouraveragefoodie

Not your average foodie, indeed. I have a Masters Degree in Dietetics and am currently employed as a Registered Dietitian at a nationally renown clinic. I created this blog to entertain and inform foodies everywhere. I am a busy, working woman battling the same food issues most people struggle with every day. Possessing the knowledge about food is the easy part. Putting it into practice... that’s where it gets tricky. I consider myself obsessed with food –– how it looks, how it smells, how it tastes, even how it makes me feel. My hope is to provide recipes, tips & tricks each day, to help foodies everywhere eat like a dietitian. I will be sharing my tips & tricks in the kitchen, providing delicious recipes, and helping foodies everywhere navigate through the supermarket, eating out, preparing foods at home, and surviving tricky eating situations whenever they arise.
