Breakfast is the most important meal of the day— as if you haven't heard that before. But what you may not know is that eating breakfast is essential for successful weight loss. “It's like putting logs on a wood-burning stove. You need that initial input of fuel to get your metabolism going for the day.”
You know that eating breakfast jump-starts your metabolism. But did you realize that certain a.m. choices can crank up your fat-burning even more?
The key: eating a breakfast thats high in Resistant Starch (RS). Found in foods like bananas and oats, RS actually signals your body to use fat for energy.
