Experts believe that breakfast keeps your metabolism running higher because skipping meals causes the body to kick into 'starvation' mode. Plus, women who eat a nutritious breakfast tend to make better dietary choices the rest of the day.
Breakfast should include a healthy source of protein and plenty of fiber - that combination will help satisfy your hunger and will keep you feeling full until lunch time. A healthy breakfast doesn't need to be extravagant or take a long time to prepare.
Try something simple like a hard-boiled egg, a piece of 100-percent whole grain toast along with a cup of 100-percent fruit juice. Another easy and complete breakfast is a bowl of cold whole grain cereal (cold or hot) with berries and toast with peanut butter.
