Diet Tip - Do not Skip breakfast!

When you first wake up, you are likely to be low on energy.

If, the night before, you ate dinner between 7 to 8 p.m. and then nothing else until breakfast at 8 a.m., you would have gone 12 hours without added fuel. Your body may have burned around 1,100 calories during this period. Most of the fuel used would have come from your stored fat and carbs!!

If you skip breakfast at this point and do a tough workout, Say you burn 500 calories during the workout. By the time you eat later that morning, you may have lowered your energy deficiency by 1,600 calories (that is, 1,100 calories burned while you sleep, plus 500 from the workout).

At some point of time you body will demand more fuel and this is the time when you will most likely to binge and hog and go into a huge energy surplus to compensate. This will lead to Over Eating and more calorie consumption.

The moral :
Never Skip Break fast and for the rest eat small-to-moderate sized meals every three or four hours.
