Are you one of “no-breakfast” population? Skipping breakfast is a common strategy for people who are trying to lose weight, but unfortunately, it's usually not a successful strategy. Your body (or more likely, your brain) expects to be refueled a few times each day.

When you don't eat breakfast you may feel so hungry by lunch time that you eat more foods than you normally would, which cancels out the calories you cut by skipping breakfast. You may also be tempted to choose foods that are not the healthiest choices when you feel like you're starving.

Research studies tell us that people who eat breakfast are more likely to maintain a healthy weight.

This is a very nice porridge/muslie that is prepared the night before (so you don’t have to thinking about planning breakfast in the morning), after having this you’ll never go back to not having breakfast.

 Blueberry Banana Overnight Oats

(Per single serving)
1/3 cup oats
1/3 cup Greek yogurt
1/3 cup  milk, slightly overflowing
1/2 banana (1/3 if it's particularly large)
Scant 1/4 cup blueberries
Granola, or nuts

Mash banana and blueberries together in a bowl until blended together. Stir in oats, yogurt, and milk. Cover, and refrigerate overnight.

Top with granola and fresh berries/bananas in the morning, if desired.

I’m sure you’ll enjoy this and it will get you flying through the day!

Yours in Health & Fitness,
