Slim people eat breakfast. That’s an indisputable fact, according to a new study from Cornell University. When researchers surveyed 147 slender people who said they’d never had to struggle with their weight, they found that a whopping 96 percent of them ate breakfast nearly every day. Imagine going an entire workday without drinking a thing. That’s what’s hapening after a good night’s sleep—you wake up dehydrated, making what you drink the first most important decision of the day. Here’s our top for picks for what to imbibe.
One reason slim people stay slender is that they avoid the “Frappuccino”—which is an exotic way of saying you’re drinking two ice cream cones worth of calories while catching a caffeine buzz. If you absolutely must have your morning buzz, perk yourself up with a nonfat, unsweetened iced coffee instead. And if your sweet tooth must be satisfied, ask your barista to add in two pumps of your favorite flavored syrup to your cup instead of the Frap’s four. This simple swap will save you more than 400 calories and a whopping 53 grams of the sweet stuff—that’s more sugar than you’ll find in three Starbucks’ chocolate croissants. Source
