Oh, I almost forgot the other tidbit health professionals never warn you about. Breakfast. Sure it boosts your metabolism and you’ll gain weight if you keep skipping it. However, when you first start having breakfast, that kick in your metabolism will leave you hungry all day. I can only imagine the number of dieters that start eating breakfast and then cry through the rest of the day due to a growling belly. The truth is, it passes. If you’re about to start eating breakfast after a long time without, stock up on healthy snacks and then snack the day away. If you’re counting calories, you probably will go over your limit over the next 3 – 4 days. After that point, however, your body will calm down.
Why health professionals never warn you about this, despite the fact that I’ve double checked my experiences with three others (I know, only three, but still – that’s a whopping 100% agreement rate!) and they all went through the same.
