Can eating a big breakfast can help you lose weight?
“When you wake up in the morning, Pooh,” said Piglet at last, “what’s the first thing you say to yourself?”
“What’s for breakfast?” said Pooh. “What do you say, Piglet?”
“I say, I wonder what’s going to happen exciting today?” said Piglet.
Pooh nodded thoughtfully. “It’s the same thing,” he said.” – A.A. Milne
Do you want to lose weight? If you do, many studies have found that people who eat a hearty breakfast and a lighter dinner tend to have lower levels of body fat. These same people are better able to lose weight and keep it off.
No matter how you eat, what and the amount you eat still matters more than when you eat it. So if you think you can eat more for breakfast and then lose weight you better think again.
While the above is true, reversing your typical eating pattern can give you many healthy advantages. If up to now you’ve been skipping breakfast and then coming home late at night to load up on snacks, you might want to give this new routine a try. Continue reading

You don’t have to use expensive weight loss options,
The weight loss industry is huge. 108 million Americans spent over $20 Billion on diet books, diet drugs and weight-loss surgeries last year.
Remedies for being overweight are everywhere. One website proclaims that Kim Kardashian, Rachael Ray and Christina Aguilera used the Garcinia Cambogia and Clear Cleanse combo to lose a large amount of weight (over 42 pounds for Christina) quickly.
Losing weight that fast is never healthy. What’s even worse it seldom lasts.
But not only isn’t this healthy it also isn’t cheap. You can get a free bottle of the stuff for a shipping charge of $4.95 but after your 14 day trial “you’ll be billed $84.74 for your bottle and a fresh supply will be shipped every 3 weeks”.
That’s a lot of dough, wouldn’t you agree? Continue reading
