Weight-Loss Worries? Eat Breakfast!!

At the start of the week -- or pretty much any morning -- many people seem to skip out on breakfast. Whether you are in a hurry or just don't have time to cook anything - pre-planning could save you a lot of time.

Even if it's a quick toasted whole wheat bagel with a smear of peanut butter and a banana -- just do it!

After a night without food, your body needs refueling to get through the next day. "Think about the word 'breakfast,'" says Tallahassee, Fla.-based dietitian Evette O'Connor, MS, RD. "It literally means to 'break your fast,' the 8 or 10 hours your body has gone without food. When you don't eat breakfast, your body has to call upon other nutritional stores in order to function. It's just like your car. You can't drive without gas, and your body won't function properly without replenishing its fuel."
