Go big at breakfast
Always head off to work with a full stomach. Designating brekkie as your largest meal not only fills you up but also helps with weight management, says research from Virginia Commonwealth University, because it gives you more time to burn those calories throughout the day. Make the most of it by going for foods that release energy into your bloodstream slowly, like steel-cut oats with nuts and berries or whole-grain toast with eggs, says Tristaca Curley, a registered dietitian in Kelowna, B.C.
