Eat Breakfast
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.
