How many times have we started a diet, only to have a decrease in blood sugar sabotage our efforts by lunchtime? Sometimes dieting can feel like a double-edged sword. We do everything right. We count calories, fat and carbohydrates and we reduce our sodium.

Then why does it sometimes feel as though nothing is working? How can we decrease our food intake and still have the energy to go to the gym? The answer is easier than you think. By eating the right kinds of foods at the right time of day, you can increase your energy, boost your metabolism and still lose weight" without feeling hungry!

The first step to eating for all-day energy is one you may have heard before; eat breakfast. The best way to ensure you won't cheat on your daily morning power-boost is to make your breakfast the night before. Even if you don't feel hungry when you wake up, eating even a small breakfast will help you boost your metabolism all day long. If you hate eating breakfast, start small with 1/2 cup Greek yogurt and a serving of your favorite fruit.
