If you feel you don't have the time to get something to eat in the morning rush, then you probably can't afford not to eat breakfast
. Breakfast helps you be more alert, improves concentration, focus and mood. Eating in the morning can even lower your LDL or bad cholesterol
. Breakfast doesn't have to be something elaborate. It can be simple and quick like instant oatmeal
made with fat-free milk. Try a banana and string cheese or lowfat yogurt.
If you are a breakfast skipper, try something small at first, like just a piece of fruit
. With time your body will learn to expect fuel in the morning, and it won't have to store calories from the day before to run on in the morning.Eat a small snack.
