Making changes to your morning routine can help you lose weight and keep it off. It starts with eating a high-protein breakfast and drinking a glass or two of water. Research suggests this can reduce appetite and enhance weight loss. Studies also show that weighing yourself daily helps with weight loss. It further helps to get some sunlight and physical activity in the morning, and to practice mindfulness. On the other, getting more sleep is beneficial (sleep deprivation is associated with increased appetite). Other beneficial morning habits include packing your lunch, not driving to work, and keeping a food diary.
- Eating a breakfast that’s high in protein will help you with cravings throughout the entire day.
- Staying hydrated can help you to lose weight by decreasing your appetite and increasing your energy expenditure.
- Exposing yourself to sunlight can increase your vitamin D levels, which can help you lose weight.
