The most common New Year’s resolution for people is to “lose weight”.  Even if it’s not your resolution, there are a lot of people who would like to lose a few pounds and get healthier.  What if you could do that by eating more?

An article on Epicurious.com shares that experts agree eating a bigger breakfast will help you lose weight, because you’re more likely to eat less the rest of the day.  A healthy breakfast with fiber and protein will keep you feeling full and help you avoid the sugar craving many people get mid-morning.  It’s also been proven that people who eat breakfast in the morning give their metabolism a boost, which helps you burn more calories throughout the day and may encourage you to get your exercise in since you’ll have more energy.

To lose weight, you have to cut back on the total number of calories you eat per day and increase exercise – but eat more of your daily calories in the morning and less later in the day and see if that doesn’t help you lose weight a little faster.
