Biggest Loser Mike with Trainer Jimi Varner

Never skip breakfast!

This post is brought to you by our friends at Results Fitness, owned by Alwyn & Rachael Cosgrove

Never skip breakfast. Why?

Eating breakfast jump-starts your metabolism first thing in the morning. Any time you eat you'll get a slight bump in your calorie-burning rate, since it takes energy to digest food. The morning meal is particularly important. Research shows that breakfast eaters have an above-average metabolic rate; skippers have a lower than average rate.

You may not think of it in this way but while you sleep, your body is fasting. When your body runs out of nutrients from food it must cannibalize its own muscle tissue. After four hours without food, the body suppresses its ability to burn calories in order to conserve energy and goes directly after muscle tissue instead, converting muscle to glucose for energy. Over time, this slowly decreases the amount of muscle tissue that the body has, which, in turn, decreases your metabolic rate. Since muscle tissue burns calories not fat, it becomes more and more difficult to lose the fat and the weight. Eating breakfast first thing in the morning halts this cannibalization.

Mike Morelli is NOT a loser

Last night, I sat in the 2nd row of the NBC The Biggest Loser Finale and watched in hopeful expectation that my client and friend, Mike Morelli, would win the title of "The Biggest Loser" Season 7. While Mike didn't win the title, losing by less than 1%, he did lose 207lbs, ending his journey at a lean and mean 181lbs! Congrats Mike, I am proud to be your trainer and friend.

Biggest Loser Week for Jimi

On Sunday night, 5/10, I will be featured on Local 4 News at 11pm in a story focusing on Biggest Loser, Mike Morelli's 'secret weapon', (shhh: it's me). I know 11pm is late for a Sunday night, so you might want to set the DVR

On Tuesday, 5/12, I will be at the Biggest Loser Finale show in Los Angeles. The show airs live on NBC from 8pm - 11pm. I will be there to support Mike Morelli as he is in the running for the $250,000 prize.
