10 Ways to Eat Healthier

Healthy Eating Tip No. 8

Don't skip meals (especially breakfast). Skipping meals, or starving your body will cause it to go into a starvation mode - it will start to hold on to fat rather than burn it.

Your metabolism will actually pick up steam and start to burn more of what you're giving it - especially with an accompanying daily exercise program.
