Chow Down In the Morning

If you’re still skipping breakfast, now is the perfect time to try a new habit. “Many people figure if they skip a meal they’ll lose weight,” says Toby Smithson, RD, LDN, CDE, founder of DiabetesEveryDay.com and spokesperson for the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics. “But the opposite is true – they usually gain, and they don’t get all the vitamins and nutrients they need each day.” Best breakfast food choices include whole grain cereals with skim milk and berries or a small banana; fat-free Greek yogurt with a drizzle of honey and a handful of nuts such as sliced almonds, and low-fat cottage cheese with fruit.

Why it’ll make you feel good: You can actually eat more to lose weight.
