Burn Fat Faster By Eating Breakfast

Jun 18, 2008
When you are trying to lose weight, you may have tried a lot of different diets that did not work. Fad diets are especially popular because they help you to lose weight quickly. They don't work because once you eat regularly, the weight will return along with a few extra pounds. One gimmick that is often tested by people looking to lose weight is the skipping of breakfast.

Some may feel that they are jump starting their weight loss regiment by cutting out a few extra calories, but you will end up hurting yourself and your diet in the long run. When you become hungry from not eating breakfast, it's easy to reach for something unhealthy and you end up consuming a lot of empty calories.

Eating breakfast every morning is a great way to burn fat fast because it will help to boost your metabolism. On the other hand, if you skip breakfast, your metabolism will actually slow down. You will help your metabolism to burn fat instead of storing it, which is something that it will do if you do not eat when you are supposed to.

When you don't eat breakfast or other meals during the day, your body will begin to think that it is starving. Remember that you have just woken up, so your body was not receiving food during those hours of sleep. When you tack on the hours in the morning used when you skipped breakfast, you are looking at 10 to 12 hours or more. Once your body believes that it is starving, it will kick into protection mode. To help protect itself, your body will begin to store fat instead of burning it.

If instead you eat breakfast, your body will get started in the morning by burning the fat stored during sleep. If you continue to eat throughout the day, your body will continue to burn fat because your metabolism was turned on at breakfast time.

This does not mean that you should pig out on junk food all day. Look at a diet plan and they will usually have a healthy snack somewhere among the instructions. Generally they will tell you to eat breakfast, a healthy snack, lunch, another healthy snack and then dinner. You can even eat more than three meals a day by eating small meals all day long. Your metabolism will do a continuous burn because its getting a healthy fuel throughout your busy day. When you add exercise to this regiment, you will burn fat quickly and lose a lot of weight.

You should aim to eat breakfast no more than an hour after you wake up, to help kick start your metabolism as early as possible. You may believe that starving yourself and skipping breakfast and lunch is a good way to lose weight, but remember that you have to eat to survive. You also need energy and skipping meals will have you feeling sluggish all day. T o compensate, millions of people are living on coffee and energy drinks as their first meals of the day. A good breakfast will help to give you energy and a healthy body.
