Diet Tip: Skip Skipping Meals

When it comes to losing weight, it is easy to think that skipping meals means less food which means fewer calories in. It can seem counterintuitive but skipping meals could be one of the worst ways to lose weight.

Here's why: When you skip a meal (or two, or three), your body starts to wonder why it's not getting any food and it will go into starvation mode. Then it reacts by slowing down your metabolism. As we all know by now, a slower metabolism means slower weight loss so this is the last thing you want. Try not to leave more than three or four hours between meals and snacks—some people even like to have 5-6 smaller meals per day to make sure this never happens.

Fit's Tip: More importantly, try your hardest not to skip breakfast.
