Remember to eat a healthy breakfast 100-200 calories as soon as you can after waking.(examples of good breakfast.....egg whites in which ever way you like with a cup of fat free Milk a cup of fruit ( for colon health fruit should be eaten only in early hours of the day otherwise they ferment and cause gas).
