All the specialists say “breakfast is the most important meal of the day”. It’s the fuel for your body to sustain you throughout a busy day. If you like to eat breakfast, there are many tempting breakfast foods that make you feel special and you are happy to enjoy. But if you’re trying to lose weight, you might want to start avoiding these “favorite foods”, at least for your everyday diet, and reserve them for celebratory occasions.
The state of your hormone metabolism influences the number of calories you can eat. To build your metabolism to be supportive and healthy, studies show that a breakfast high in protein and good fats will facilitate weight loss.
These are eight breakfast foods to avoid if you want to lose fat or just maintain your weight and good body composition.
8. Processed Cereals
These common breakfast foods are promoted as healthy, but cereal is high in carbohydrates and full of refined sugar. Cereals can destroy hormones, zap your energy, and are high in calories. This even includes many granolas, except for homemade types, where you know what you have mixed together.
It’s better to eat oatmeal; not the instant kind, but steel-cut oats that you need to cook. This kind is rich in beta-glucan fiber and is very filling, and could lower cholesterol.
7. Flavored Yogurts
Unfortunately, many processed yogurts have too many added sugars, which increases calories and cancels out the good effects of yogurt. Instead, try a plain, nothing added Greek yogurt or homemade, fresh yogurt. You can add a few pieces of fresh fruit, cinnamon, or nutmeg for flavor. Greek yogurt is higher in protein, reduces your appetite, and contains better probiotics.
