The Fix

The holidays are in high gear and it's likely you've got leftover treats hanging around your kitchen already. Keep your nibbling in check by starting the day with a high-protein breakfast.

Research found that people who did so ate fewer calories all day. Try this creamy smoothie with yogurt and almond butter! YUM

Enjoy a high-protein breakfast: People who did so ate fewer calories all day, research from the University of Kansas at Kansas City shows. Protein ups levels of satiety hormones, so you'll be less likely to snack. Sip this smoothie: Blend 1 cup nonfat Greek yogurt with 1/2 cup canned pumpkin puree, 1 banana, 2 tsp almond butter, 1/2 cup vanilla soymilk, 1/4 tsp pumpkin-pie spice and 5 ice cubes.
