For some, squeezing in even just a few extra minutes for breakfast in the morning might not seem simple at all, but making the effort to include it as a part of your prep for the day can certainly lead to lots of positive changes. “Most science points to the fact that breakfast-eaters tend to have generally healthier eating habits overall,” said Josh Anderson, an AFAA certified personal fitness trainer and the CEO of Always Active Athletics. For example, one study found eating a high-protein breakfast led women to eat less throughout the rest of the morning, and there’s a large body of research that supports the same notion for both men and women. “So, if you often skip breakfast and are struggling to maintain a balanced diet, try making a habit of eating a nutritious meal every morning,” Anderson said.
