When you hit your 40s, you may start noticing that you're starting to put on weight around the middle, which is due to your metabolism slowing down. This means you'll be burning fewer calories. So what to do? How about eating breakfast? Researchers in Vanderbilt University found that women who ate breakfast had an easier time controlling cravings and consumed less fat throughout the day as compared to those who skipped breakfast.
Another thing you can do is if you are getting the late night munchies is to drink a glass of water. A recent study found people who did that were able to avoiding eating anything else.
