Do you exercise in the morning?
If you do, consider pushing your morning meal to after your workout—as it may help your weight loss efforts, according to new
research in The Journal of Physiology. During the six-week study, participants who ate a high-cal, high-fat breakfast before
hitting the gym packed on an average of three pounds. The after-workout eaters? They gained almost no weight—although they
ate the same breakfast. Find

Can’t push through with a growling belly? “Try splitting your breakfast,” suggests Leslie Bonci, R.D., director of sports
nutrition at the University of Pittsburgh. “Have a 4-ounce yogurt before your workout and have whole-grain toast with peanut
butter and a banana afterward.”
