Does Breakfast Help You Lose Weight and Boost Your Metabolism? Here's What an Expert Says
Metabolism is one of those things that is really important to know — like algebra, how to do your taxes, and politics — but it's super confusing. Because it's a complicated topic, there's a lot of incorrect information floating around. First, let's clear up a few popular myths. No, drinking water first thing in the morning won't boost your metabolism. Eating more spicy foods, doing ginger and cayenne pepper shots, and drinking coffee also won't work.
When it comes to breakfast, we know people think it's either the most important meal of the day or that it isn't that important. Some people also believe breakfast is the key to boosting your metabolism. In order to find out if there's any validity to this claim, POPSUGAR spoke to Avigdor Arad, PhD, RDN, CDE, director of the Mount Sinai PhysioLab.
