It is one of the biggest cliches when it comes to nutrition, but there’s a good reason it’s so widespread – it is completely true. Breakfast is indeed the most important meal of the day and if you are trying to lose weight you shouldn’t even think of skipping it.

Check out this equation developed by nutritionists Stephanie Clarke and Willow Jarosh from C&J Nutrition and learn how to stack up on everything you need for the day and avoid the need to overeat later in the day. Stephanie and Willow or ‘Clarke&Jarosh’ are the brains behind C&J Nutrition. They met at college and “have been on a mission to share accurate and up-to-date nutrition information in the most understandable and delicious ways ever since”.
