Eat breakfast! Did you know that by eating breakfast, you can increase your metabolism by 4-5 percent to burn more calories throughout the rest of the day? Just remember, this doesnâ€™t mean you should stock up on Pop Tarts! Try multigrain cereals with fruit and nonfat milk for a fast meal. If you have more time, try a poached egg over a toasted English muffin, sprinkled with reduced fat bacon bits. Reduce your fat consumption by trying extra lean bacon and egg substitutes. Most are very good, but you may need to try more than one brand before you find one you like. If you must eat breakfast out, look for bran muffins or try hotcakes without added butter, and topped with fruit.
