I don't believe that breakfast "boosts your metabolism" (I just don't get how that would happen), but here are three arguments for eating breakfast.
1) Bill Phillips, author of Body For Life, believes that if you don't start your day with a good breakfast, then your mind starts down that dreaded path of, "Oh well, i've already blown it, I may as well keep eating whatever I want."So get up on time. Eat the breakfast that is on your meal plan. And you'll have a better chance of sticking to your daily plan.
2) According to research, folks who eat breakfast tend to maintain their weight loss better than folks who don't. The researchers never give a good reason, but hey, it must be helping.
3) Researchers from Toronto have found that eating a high-fiber breakfast helps reduce food intake in following meals. They call it the "first meal effect".
So again, start your day right, and the rest of the day will be easier.
