Ahhhhh! Now make a resolution to treat yourself to a healthy snack to keep you going strong – with our help.
Heigh ho, heigh ho, it’s off to work you go – with no time for breakfast. If that’s your tune each morning, it’s time to do something nice for your body and mind: Eat that first meal of the day before you leave the house.

Low-carb dieters lost more weight even though they ate the same number of calories! Another study, just completed at Hebrew University of Jerusalem, revealed that mice who ate a high-fat diet at scheduled times throughout the day weighed less at the end of the study than test animals in other control groups.
