Start Eating these Magical low-calorie breakfasts if you really want to lose weight!
A perfect day starts with the ideal breakfast. And I think it is pointless to say as it's a proven fact now that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. The claim becomes more true particularly when you are trying to maintain a healthy weight or lose it. There are many, many more reasons to eat breakfast everyday rather than to skip it. Having a healthy breakfast in the morning satiates your hunger and sluggishness throughout the day. It is also a must if you are on a weight loss plan because it fuels your body for the day along with boosting your metabolism which is one very important factor for losing weight.
Not only in one but oatmeal can help you lose weight in two ways. Firstly, a recent study claims that eating breakfast with slow release carbohydrate like oatmeal or bran cereal three hours before you work out may help you burn more fat when you exercise. This happens because slow releasing carbohydrate foods do not spike the blood sugar as much as refined carbohydrates do. This in turn controls insulin levels. Secondly, oatmeal is rich ion fibre and thus, keeps you fuller for longer and stops you from bingeing.
Our all-time favourite eggs are not only delicious and can be made in different varieties but also are a great friend when it comes to weight loss. Eggs are rich in protein, which is great for people who are trying to lose weight. Proteins keep you satiated for longer as compared to carbs and fats. In a recent study, people who consumed eggs for their breakfast felt fuller for longer and lost twice weight than those who got same number of calories from some other nutrient.
A report published in New England Journal of Medicine revealed the topmost foods that are related with weight loss. The good news is that yogurt was among top five foods! Do we need to say more? Choosing plain yogurt not only provides you with protein but also saves the unnecessary calories and sugar that you consume from some other sources offering you same amount of protein. To make it a little sweet or for a change in flavour, you can add fruits to your yogurt.
Homemade peanut butter
Market-available peanut butter is not only highly processed but is filled with oils and sugar. Healthy peanut butter is only made with two ingredients - peanuts and salt. Peanuts are filled with heart healthy monosaturated fats which downregulate fat genes.
