As a dietitian, I have seen many otherwise healthy diets fall short due to commonly made mistakes. It can be easy to fall into a diet pitfall. Even the most well informed dieters can make these blunders. Avoiding these common errors may help you build a healthier diet.
Mistake #1: Not eating breakfast
Why eat breakfast? Breakfast eaters are more likely to be a healthy weight, make healthier food choices throughout the day, meet their needs for essential nutrients, have improved performance and improved concentration and have more energy to make it through the day. In spite of all of these benefits enjoyed by breakfast eaters, nearly one quarter of Australians skip breakfast.
