Don’ skip breakfast – it will not help you lose weight! Studies show that eating breakfast helps weight loss and is associated with better weight control. An ongoing study of people who have maintained weight loss of at least 30 pounds for more than a year shows that eating breakfast keeps people slimmer (National Weight Control Registry). Breakfast eaters tend to eat fewer calories, less saturated fat and cholesterol and have better overall nutritional status than breakfast skippers.
What is the link between eating breakfast and weight loss?
When you skip breakfast, your metabolic rate slows down and your blood sugar drops. As a result, you become hungry and have less energy. This sets you up to impulsively snack in the morning — often on high-fat sweets — or to eat extra servings or bigger portions at lunch or dinner. When you eat breakfast, your body feels nourished and satisfied, making you less likely to overeat the rest of the day. Protein foods take longer to digest and will provide sustained energy and keep you feeling full longer.

“No time for breakfast” is no excuse
Time is at a premium for most of us. Nevertheless, it pays to make time for what may be the most important meal of the day.
Making a shake takes about 2-3 minutes. I use 2 scoops of UltraMeal powder, added to a glass of water. I use a Latte stirrer that makes it smooth without lumps or clumps. Other nutritious choices to get your day off to a good start:
- 2 scoops of UltraMeal with soy or almond milk
- Add fruit or yogurt to your taste
- Add peanut butter to your taste
If you can’t make a shake, try an UltraMeal bar. They are convenient and satisfy your hunger in a pinch.
