5. Eat breakfast
No one seems to agree about the importance of breakfast. While some scientific bodies say it’s cool to skip it if you’re not hungry, other research suggests that forgoing the meal can supercharge hunger and cravings, causing weight gain over time. While studies will likely continue to find evidence supporting both sides of the argument until the end of time, there is one thing we can say with certainty: nearly 80 percent of National Weight Control Registry members (an elite group who’ve shed an average of 66lbs and kept it off for at least 5.5 years) regularly eat breakfast. Researchers haven’t yet uncovered the connection between the morning meal and weight maintenance, but some experts hypothesize it helps those trying to maintain their weight set a healthy tone for the day.
