Studies have shown that people who eat breakfast tend to weigh less than those that don’t. Eating breakfast boosts metabolism and helps prevent late night hunger or binge eating.

Oatmeal is a great way to start the day. One half cup contains 4.6 grams of resistant starch, a fibrous carbohydrate that is needed to burn fat and boost energy. One half cup of oatmeal also contains 150 calories. When paired with hot water, it makes for a filling yet low calorie meal that is enough to tide you over until lunch or your mid-morning snack.
