I Don’t Eat Breakfast!

I hear a lot of people say this – “I don’t eat breakfast.”  Well, if you want to lose weight, find a way to start.  Here’s why.

  1. According to the Mayo Clinic, eating breakfast can reduce hunger later of the day (you know, when you find yourself scrounging around the office for the first sugary object you can find and end up devouring the entire candy bowl? I can’t be the only person who’s done this).
  2. Also, according to the Mayo Clinic (they’re just right on the ball, aren’t they?), when you go for a long time without eating – like all night up to lunch, you trigger an insulin response – those jackasses that signal your fat cells to store fat.  Let’s keep our insulin low, shall we?
  3. Elisabetta Politi, nutrition manager at Duke bless her heart, states that eating breakfast jump-starts your metabolism and if you skip it, you prevent your body from creating enzymes that it needs to signal fat loss.  Do I really need to follow this one up with any sassy input?  Thought not.
  4. It’s also been discovered, thank you WebMD (see, I’m citing my source here so you know I’m not just pulling this stuff out of my ass) that people who eat breakfast end up making better food choices throughout the day and because of this, end up keeping the weight off.  

Those are 4 amazing reasons.  Now I get it, time is a big player in this game but no one said you have to go make some big elaborate fancy meal for yourself – pffft eff that.  You know that Shakeology thing i’m constantly going on and on and on and on and on and on and on about?  This is one of those areas where it’s amazing.  Whatever you do, find a way to get some breakfast going on.  Your excuses are just adding to your waistline!
