Breakfast is considered the most important meal. A good breakfast fuels you up and gets you ready for the day.
In general, kids and teens who have their breakfast are more energetic, do better in school, and eat healthier throughout the day. Without breakfast, people can get tired. So take a moment and plan your breakfast well. Here are some healthy breakfast ideas:
Oatmeal can help you lose weight in two ways. First, it’s full of fiber and you never have to feel hungry after eating it . Second, a recent study reported that eating a breakfast made with “slow-release” carbohydrates—such as oatmeal or bran cereal hours before you exercise may help you burn more calories. How? Eating “slow-release” carbohydrates doesn’t spike blood sugar as high as eating refined carbohydrates In turn, insulin levels don’t spike as high. Because insulin plays a role in signaling your body to store fat, having lower blood sugar levels may help you burn calories.
Eggs deliver protein, which is great for dieters. Compared to carbohydrates and fat, protein keeps you satisfied longer. Plus, in one study, dieters who ate eggs for breakfast felt fuller longer and lost weight as those who got the same amount of calories from a bagel for breakfast.
Nuts were also among the top 5 foods that Harvard researchers said promote losing weight. Slather a tablespoon or two of peanut butter onto whole-wheat toast (ahem, a “slow-release” carbohydrate), but you could also add nuts to your oatmeal (another “slow-release” carb).
A recent report revealed that Yogurt is correlated with weight change. Another reason to eat yogurt: the protein in it may give you leaner muscles.
A cup of raspberries provides you with 8 grams of fiber. What’s so great about all that fiber? Recent research suggests that eating more fiber is a way to prevent weight gain or even encourage losing weight. Over the course of the two-year study, the researchers found that boosting fiber by 8 grams for every 1,000 calories resulted in about 4 ½ pounds of losing weight.
