I have spoken with busy dieters that think that skipping breakfast gets them a head start on cutting calories for the day. However, research shows that breakfast eaters are thinner than people who just rush out the door. Getting an early dose of fiber with some calories keeps your metabolism more stable and moving through the day. Eating in the morning means less hunger late in the afternoon, when you are more likely to be fatigued and thus eat more. Consider a light breakfast with a naturally processed oatmeal, or cereal, mixed with some fruit. Occasionally, a protein source like a piece of turkey bacon can be mixed in to keep things interesting.
