Skipping Breakfast? The Yolk's on You.

Did you know the key to a sumo wrestler's diet is routinely skipping breakfast? That's right--by cutting out the first meal of the day he will experience a significantly slower metabolism while also switching into a fat-storing mode. Assuming you're not on the sumo weight gain plan, it might be time to revisit your own AM eating habits. I personally try to eat within the first hour of waking up (some fluid to cleanse my system and a bit of food for the incinerator). It's rarely anything beyond fruit and yogurt or a vegan muffin, but it's enough to get me going and not feel starved by noon (I'm far more likely to eat a carb-laden lunch if I neglect my stomach all morning).

So honor thy skillet--and while you're at it, check out Beth Goehring's recently published Breakfast. With over 50 recipes ranging from the simple science of a smoothie to the more elaborate art of a breakfast burrito, you'll be inspired. The book is filled with fun little factoids as well as an interesting breakfast breakdown both here in the U.S. and around the mention of the sumo wrestler's morning delight, naturally.

Check out this segment on Fox 5 News where I give my two cents as a yoga teacher on how the body and mind work together to conquer such a dramatic feat.
