A piece of toast and a hard boiled egg walked into a bar. The bartender says, “Sorry, we don’t serve breakfast here.”    When you burn more calories than you consume, you lose weight. When you eat breakfast, you activate the thermogenesis process and thus stimulate your metabolism. Plus, studies have shown that eating a meal in the morning boosts your metabolism more than eating the same meal in the evening.  Also in general, kids and teens who eat breakfast have more energy, do better in school, and eat healthier throughout the day.
