How can I find time for breakfast if I'm trying to lose weight?

Manuel Villacorta
Nutrition & Dietetics
Make sure you eat breakfast every day. And if you just wake up and hope you make time for it, guess what -- you won't or you'll grab something that's conveniently unhealthy. You need to plan for it. On Sunday, shop for yogurt and fruit or pre-make some egg white muffin soufflés you can microwave during the week. Taking a proactive stance in your weight loss program is critical to your success. And it's not hard; it just requires a little planning and a little extra time. The important thing is not to think of it as a chore; think of it as a luxury you deserve. You may plan to get up thirty minutes earlier, or go to bed thirty minutes earlier. Be strategic about it, the way you would with an important work project, and then commit to your own success. Remember, this isn't a one-time quick solve; it's a set of skills you'll use for life. It's not a sprint; it's a marathon.
