People skip breakfast because that’s how they burn more calories. Empty stomach means flat belly. After few hours, you can eat whatever you want. Everybody intends to live in a world like this. Too bad it’s not real. I had a client who thought this approach is perfect for her. She was desperate to lose weight and didn’t listen my advises. She was coming to the appointment to make me believe in her approach. After a month, she complained about headaches, and I encouraged her to visit the doctor. It came out that she is suffering from low blood pressure and weak blood. It’s a result of what starving could do to you.

Ground flaxseed is a good supporting player in a weight loss diet. It provides fiber, which helps you feel full and offers other weight-loss benefits. It’s also one of the top sources of omega-3 fatty acids and lignan, which may facilitate your effort to drop excess pounds. With only 37 calories in 1 tablespoon, flaxseed is easy to include in your diet without breaking the calorie budget. You can also cut calories when you cook by replacing fats and eggs with ground flaxseed. Substances in flaxseed may interact with some health conditions, so consult your healthcare provider before adding them to your diet.
Oats are carbohydrates, something most people trying to lose weight fear. However, oats can help you lose weight. The reason is, unlike other refined carbs, oats digest slowly, are packed with fiber and have little impact on your blood sugar. I recommend eating oat groats because they have the highest nutritional value of all oats. Generally, all oats are healthy and can help you lose weight, as long as they are minimally processed.
