Clean Health | Don't Skip Breakfast

Fiber in the morning means less hunger late in the afternoon when you're most likely to feel tired and gorge yourself on sugar.

An early start on eating also keeps your metabolism more active throughout the day; breakfast eaters are thinner than people who just rush out the door.
