Skipping Meals

There is a common misconception that skipping meals will help with weight loss. This is simply NOT TRUE. 

In fact, skipping meals usually leads to weight gain because:

  • Your metabolic rate slows
  • Your blood sugar drops
  • You have less energy

All of which leads to impulsive snacking often on high-fat sweets or extra servings or bigger portions when you do finally eat a meal. This is particularly true when skipping breakfast.

If you find you are often "too busy" to eat, keep a KicStart™ sachet and a shaker ready in your desk at work or pack them in your suitcase or handbag. All it takes is a minute to prepare a quick, yet nutritious and filling shake that will keep your weight loss efforts on track.
