MYTH: Cut Daily Calories By Skipping One Meal

Skipping a meal will just lead to extreme hunger later on, which often means overeating at your next meal. “According to data from the Weight Loss Registry, one of the most powerful habits of successful weight maintainers is eating breakfast,” says Aronson. “Don’t like breakfast food? That’s okay; eat a salad or a wrap in the morning. Your body will thank you for it.” Skipping meals slows your body’s metabolism because it's trying to store calories from other meals. And that can stall your weight-loss efforts. So maintain balance throughout the day -- don't get too full or too hungry. A recent study found that people who eat regularly throughout the day are more likely to keep the weight off, says Berman.
