Morning: Eat a Whole-Grain Breakfast
Skipping breakfast is a big no-no when it comes to stoking your metabolism. Fueling up your body within an hour of rising will rev up your metabolism and help you burn energy effectively all day long. For a satisfying choice that supports your goals, opt for a whole-grain breakfast, since they're loaded up with dietary fiber and complex carbs that help speed up your metabolism. Even trainer Bob Harper is a big believer in eating your carbs in the morning if you're trying to lose weight! If you're not a morning person (I feel your pain!), try out this recipe for easy overnight oats that requires just 30 seconds of prep the night before.
