Healthline11: Importance of breakfast and keeping resolutions in check

Many people fail their New Year’s resolutions by the end of January, by February, the statistics are even worse. Registered dietitian and nutrition expert Lisa Katic spoke with News 11 Sunrise on how they can help those who have already abandoned their goal to lose a few pounds – or just maintain a healthy weight.

  • Breakfast really is the most important meal of the day.
  • People commonly mistake hunger for thirst, which is why it is important to stay well-hydrated with a variety of beverages.
  • While water is a great choice to stay hydrated, sometimes it just doesn’t do.  Low- and no-calorie beverages can be a great option with few, if any, calories – and studies show they can be an effective tool as part of an overall weight loss or weight management program.
  • Counting calories can be important for weight loss, but so are other habits like getting enough sleep or taking the stairs instead of the elevator.
  • While low and no-calorie sweeteners don’t suppress appetite, they can help make the thousands of foods and beverages that contain them tastier, which can help make it easier to follow a lower-calorie diet.
