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.
