If you want to lose weight then break the “fast” and eat breakfast!  Many clients say, “I just don’t like breakfast.”  Breakfast doesn’t have to be at 6 or 7 a.m., it should be when you first feel hungry.  The reason why breakfast is so important is because it starts your metabolism going so you’ll burn calories more efficiently.  For this reason breakfast can be the largest of the 3 main meals.  Dinner should be your smallest meal because within a couple hours you will be going to bed and that’s when you’ll burn the least amount of calories.
