8. Eating Breakfast
We’ve heard it our whole lives. Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Moreover, it could be the most important way to help you burn extra calories! Did you skip breakfast this morning? Did you rush out the door without taking something to eat when you get to work? New research shows that this wasn’t just an old wives’ tale. Making time for breakfast in the morning could be what your metabolism needs. Breakfast gives your metabolism a significant boost. When you eat a hearty breakfast that nourishes your body and gets it going for the day ahead, that goes double.
The good news is that you don’t have to eat your breakfast first thing. Some people aren’t hungry at that time or are way too busy to sit down for a delicious breakfast every morning. You should make time to eat some good food at some point in the first portion of the day, and it could even replace your 15-minute coffee break. Instead of living on a caffeine diet, pack a breakfast for yourself the night before work so that you don’t have any excuses. This will give your metabolism the best chance at burning calories throughout the day. Plus, you’ll get a delicious meal out of it too.
