Were you ever tempted to skip breakfast?

Sometimes it’s tempting to skip a meal like breakfast to help ‘jumpstart’ a weight loss program.  The Pure Prairie Eating Plan is not specifically geared towards weight loss, but our research indicates that eating 3 healthy meals and 3 healthy snacks throughout the day can result in weight loss.  In a recent column in the Globe and Mail, registered dietitian, Leslie Beck cites research that found that eating a big breakfast (700 of a 1400 calorie a day eating plan) was more effective in losing weight than eating a small breakfast (200 of 1400 calories).  She suggests that a good breakfast should contain a good source of protein (other sources suggest 20-30 g/meal) as well as low glycemic carbs such as steel-cut oats, oat bran, whole grain rye bread, 100 per cent bran cereal, most types of fruit, yogurt and milk.  For the full article go to http://www.theglobeandmail.com/life/health-and-fitness/ask-a-health-expert/how-eating-a-bigger-breakfast-can-help-you-achieve-your-weight-loss-goals/article23180815/
