It’s called the mid-morning let-down. For those dieters who find themselves nibbling mid-morning on the stale doughnuts left in the employee lounge, your problem could be what you didn’t eat earlier in the day. People who skip breakfast in an effort to cut calories inevitably eat more calories later in the day. It might sound counter-intuitive, but eat something for breakfast, even if you’re not hungry. I guarantee, for most people, it will help curb those temptations to snack later on. Of course, make it a healthy breakfast. You’re best bet is whole grain cereal, nonfat milk or soymilk, and a glass of OJ or a banana. If you must skip breakfast, be prepared for the inevitable blood-sugar nose dive by bringing healthful snacks, such as fruit, string cheese, yogurt, or nuts.
