You might think that skipping breakfast can help you cut the calories, but it's actually one of the worst things you can do for your diet. In fact, several studies show that eating a healthy breakfast daily can actually help you lose weight and keep it off!

"When you sleep, your body fasts for eight or more hours," says Rachel Alejandro, co-author of Eat Clean Love. "This puts your body in survival mode, and it starts to store fat. By breaking your fast with a nutritious meal—ideally within an hour after waking—you are jump-starting your metabolism and telling it 'all systems go!'"

While healthy eating starts with your first meal of the day, it certainly doesn't end there. Don't undo all your hard work—hey, you didn't scoop out all those avocados for nothingby eating at a fast-food restaurant. Instead, try making your own baon with Eat Clean Love's Burrito Bowl.

And just because you're trying to eat healthy doesn't mean you can't have any of the good stuff either. If you feel like snacking in the middle of the day, how about some Superfood Suman Truffles instead of reaching for a bag of chips? They're gluten-free and high in omega-3 fatty acids and fiber!
