Skipping breakfast is a common mistake many people make while trying to lose weight. They think that they are cutting the calories which will help them to have flat belly. There is some scientific evidence which suggests eating breakfast regularly if you want to have flat stomach.
You have a number of options when it comes to eating your breakfast. You want to eat foods which are high in fiber and other nutrients so that you do not start feeling hungry before lunch time.
Here is my list of 5 best foods one should try to eat regularly at breakfast for losing weight. Remember to make some healthy changes in your lifestyle along with eating healthy foods at breakfast to accelerate the weight loss process.
1. Low Fat Greek Yogurt
Low fat Greek yogurt is best way to kick start your day. Greek yogurt is high in protein and low in fat helping you with your weight loss goals. I like to add some berries to my yogurt bowl and you can also do the same if you do not like plain yogurt.
Oatmeal in the breakfast keeps your tummy full due to high fiber content. Oatmeal suppresses food cravings so that you do not have to munch on snacks in between meals. When you eat oatmeal, beta-glucan in it will help your body to increase Cholecystokinin hormone levels that helps your body fight hunger.
I try to avoid eating instant varieties of oatmeal as those are loaded with sugars. Adding berries of the season makes the breakfast yummy.
Avocados are rich in fiber, mono-unsaturated fat and other nutrients. Avocados contain only 50 calories per serving of one oz. They are perfect choice for a healthy weight loss promoting breakfast with very low sugar levels.
Avocados also have high level of potassium to help build muscle, break down and use carbohydrates helping you to have leaner body and lose weight.
Bananas contain 75% water in addition to fiber. Bananas will help you lose weight as you feel full and consume very low calories at the same time.
5. Flax Seeds
Flax seeds provides fiber, that gives you feeling of fullness and offers other benefits for weight loss. It’s also one of the top sources of omega-3 fatty acids that might aid your effort to drop excess pounds of body fat.
One spoon of ground flax seeds provides 2 grams of fiber. You can add flax seeds to your yogurt, bowl of oatmeal cereal or add it to a glass of smoothie.
