I have made eating a daily breakfast part of a healthy lifestyle that includes making wise food choices and balancing calories with daily exercise. Eating a healthy breakfast can also reduce your hunger throughout the day, while helping you to make better food choices at other meals. While it might seem you could save calories by skipping breakfast, this is really not an effective strategy if your desire is to lose weight. No matter how hard you try, hunger will always get the best of a "breakfast-skipper", and ultimately, those that do no partake in breakfast will tend to eat more at lunch, snack-times and other meals.
I have learned a healthy breakfast that will aid weight loss and is conducive to maintaining a healthy lifestyle should contain protein and/or whole grains as opposed to a but-gusting meal loaded with fat and calories.
Make Lean Protein Part of Your Breakfast
Adding a little lean protein to your breakfast may be just the boost you need to help keep you feeling full until lunchtime. Protein helps blunt your hunger and a traditional breakfast of eggs may be one of the best ways to get in your morning protein. While eggs are not always associated with weight loss, they contain some of the highest-quality protein.
As you can see from many of the breakfast recipes I post here on Foodidude.com, I pretty much eat eggs every day. This is my "post workout" go-to meal along with a healthy carb, such as sweet potatoes or steel cut oats. These aid in the repair of my muscles and gives my body something to feed on instead of the muscles I am trying to build. Plus the protein keeps me going, energy you need for every morning!
