Each weekday this month, check out BettyConfidential’s exclusive tip from top trainers and nutritionists, and take a look at the daily three-meal menu from NutriFit, a health-conscious food delivery program that works with A-list stars like Angelina Jolie.

Tip of the day

Don’t be afraid of breakfast. It’s tempting to try to “save” calories by skipping your morning meal. But, says Los Angeles-based celebrity trainer Valerie Waters, “Studies consistently show that people who eat breakfast are thinner than those who don’t.” Starting the day with a nutritious meal boosts your metabolism and helps set a pattern for healthy eating.

Today’s Menu

Breakfast
½ cup low-fat granola
1 cup nonfat or low-fat milk
1 large banana

Snack
1 kiwi
