5. Do NOT skip breakfast
After a big dinner the night before or a wild night out it’s tempting to compensate by skipping the most important meal of the day- but don’t. When you wake up in the morning, wake up your metabolism too. Studies show that women who skip meals, especially breakfast, are 4 ½ times more likely to become obese. So while in the short term you may see the numbers go down on the scale, your metabolism nose-dives. With a slow metabolism you are more than likely to put the weight back on, and more. So even if it means waking up a minute earlier to grab a yogurt out of the fridge before heading to work, the sacrifice is worth it.
