Back at home, men are also world-class breakfast-skippers -- terrible habit,
Klein says. "We go into a kind of starvation mode when we sleep, so if you
wait until lunch to eat again, the body thinks, 'Hey, I'd better save this as
reserves. Who knows when this guy's going to eat next?' So it gets stored as
fat. Take five minutes to have a high-fiber cereal or even peanut butter on
whole wheat toast. Small changes make big differences."
One last directive from Klein, who says Americans eat way more than we need:
Cut those portions in half. It's the quickest change a man can make in his
eating habits -- even if it is hard to swallow.
