Source: Breakfast Mistakes That Lead to Weight Gain
Skipping out on the first meal of the day to save calories and lose weight? Not exactly the best plan, since saying no to breakfast can slow down your metabolism and cause your body to hold on to fat. But it's not only important to eat in the morning - make sure you avoid these four breakfast mistakes as well.

It's important to eat within an hour of waking, because just like skipping breakfast, it messes with your metabolism. Avoid eating too late by making these meals the night before. If you don't have time to sit down and eat, pack a portable snack the night before that you can quickly grab and nibble on the way.
- I'll grab a drink with my breakfast: Liquid calories get you every time!
