The Value Of A Healthy Breakfast For Weight Loss

Author : Ram Gupta


How important is a healthy breakfast for weight loss? It is one of the most commonly asked questions on the subject of health and weight loss. However, there is no ambiguity to the answer - a healthy breakfast is crucial to your weight loss diet.

Light Breakfast is Fine

Contrary to popular belief, it is not strictly necessary to pack yourself with food very early in the day. If you don't usually wake up very hungry, that is ok. You can possibly begin your day with something light and wait a couple of hours before beginning your proper eating cycle. However, if you are trying to follow a weight loss diet and improve your health in the process, it is extremely crucial that whatever you have in the morning is nutritious.

Problem With Sugar-Rich Foods

If you fill yourself with sugar-rich foods in the morning, you will be loading yourself with a lot of calories and 'quick release' carbohydrates. The carbohydrates are digested rapidly, which means that in spite of the number of calories you have consumed, you will end up feeling hungry very fast. This will mess up your weight loss efforts. Also, in the process there will be a rush of sugar in your blood followed by a phase of low energy and fatigue.

Traditional Choices To Knock Off Your List

Keeping in mind the reasoning described above, a lot of traditional breakfast foods get ruled out: sugar-rich cereals, pastries, muffins, pancakes, waffles, donuts, pies and scones. Other items, such as regular fried eggs and sausages, cheesy omelets, cream bagels and hash browns are extremely fatty and greasy calorie bombs that will do your weight loss diet no favors. So, what's left? Well, a lot of things!

The Right Ingredients

A healthy breakfast for weight loss must consist of protein, fiber and complex carbohydrates. Each of these ingredients will keep you feeling full for longer and will lead to prolonged energy release. As a result you will be left feeling energetic and bright and will not feel the urge to overeat.

Eggs

Eggs, specifically egg whites, are rich in protein, an essential constituent of a healthy weight loss diet. The healthiest way to have your eggs is either boiled or poached. For more taste, you could even scramble them in olive oil, and add some vegetables, such as onions, peppers and tomatoes. Toasted whole wheat bread with some low fat butter will go very well with your eggs.

Whole Grains

Whole grains offer the right kind of carbohydrates and are rich in fiber, which is why whole wheat bread has been recommended above. If you like a bowl of cereal, a whole grain cereal such as oatmeal, is the healthiest for weight loss. To enhance the taste, you could top up your oatmeal with dry fruits (walnuts, almonds, raisin) and berries or bananas. A bowl of this will make a tasty, wholesome and filling breakfast that will keep you energized all day.

Light Bites

If you prefer something light as part of your healthy breakfast for weight loss, go in for something like low fat yogurt with fresh fruits or even a fresh fruit salad. Alternatively, you could blend in whole fruits, such as apples and bananas, with low fat yogurt and milk, for a tasty and filling home made smoothie.
