Research shows that the old saying is true: breakfast really is the most important meal of the day. Data from the National Weight Control Registry–an ongoing study of successful dieters who have shed an average of 66 pounds and kept it off for five years–shows that nearly 80 percent of them eat breakfast every day.
A morning meal that includes vegetables, healthy fat, and protein does much more than just help you slim down, however. As I report in my bestselling book, The Omni Diet, this breakfast also balances your blood sugar, stimulates hormones that help you feel full, and gives you the mental clarity to make smart food decisions all day long.
What’s more, the right morning meal boosts your energy, reduces risk for chronic diseases (including high blood pressure, diabetes, and obesity), and gives you laser-like focus when you need it the most. A healthy breakfast also primes your hormones to combat food cravings.
