7 best breakfast ideas for weight loss


Skipping breakfast had been in trend a while ago or considered as an alternate to reduce unwanted fat of the body. Most people have made this outlook to have just a glass of milk or nothing in breakfast which is absolutely wrong. To reduce weight, most important requirement is to eat healthy. A healthy morning meal, can give you energy, satisfy your appetite, and set the stage for smart decisions all day long. Unlike typical eating habits, there are plenty options in favorite breakfast foods, along with expert tips for making them even healthier.

1) Oat meal - 

You may have noticed a heart-shaped seal on your box of oatmeal recently. The seal's there because oats contain beta-glucan, a type of fiber that's been shown to help lower cholesterol when eaten regularly. Need another reason to dig in? Oats are also rich in omega-3 fatty acids, folate, and potassium.

In short, any type of oat meal is a healthy choice. But, try and avoid flavored kinds, which generally you will see packed with sugar. Instead, honey brings a perfect combo with fruits and nuts to sweeten your bowl of milk.


2) Grapefruit -


According to one study, eating half a grapefruit before each meal may help you slim down faster, thanks to the fruit's fat-burning properties and its beneficial effect on blood sugar and insulin levels. Grapefruit is also hydrating, filling, and packed with immunity-boosting anti-oxidants.

For a well-rounded breakfast, pair it with protein—such as yogurt or an egg, Giovinazzo suggests. But check with your doctor first if you take any medications, as grapefruit and grapefruit juice can interfere with some prescription drugs.


3) Banana's -


There's nothing like a banana at breakfast to keep those mid-morning cravings at bay. The yellow fruit—especially when they're still a touch green—are one of the best sources of resistant starch, a healthy carbohydrate that keeps you feeling fuller longer.

"Slice it up and add it to cereal or oatmeal," Giovinazzo suggests. "It will add natural sweetness, so you may not need additional sugar."

Thanks to a healthy dose of potassium, an electrolyte that helps lower blood pressure naturally, bananas are a particularly good choice for people with hypertension.


4) Eggs -

Most of the readers have been skeptical to have eggs for one or the other reason. For vegetarians it may take a little courage to begin with eggs or gel up with the fragrance. Well jokes apart! These incredible edibles have made quite a comeback in recent years. 

There had been a myth for eggs being high in dietary cholesterol (one yolk contains about 60% of your daily allotment), are now embraced as a healthy source of protein and nutrients like vitamin D

5) Watermelon - 

As its name suggests, watermelon is an excellent way to hydrate in the morning. What's less well known is this juicy fruit is among the best sources of lycopene—a nutrient found in red fruits and vegetables that's important for vision, heart health, and cancer prevention.

Best of all, watermelon contains just 40 calories per cup, landing it on lists of so-called negative-calorie foods that supposedly burn more calories during digestion than they add in. (Actually, it's a bit more complicated than that, but that's no reason to not eat watermelon!)


6) Blueberries - 




Fresh or frozen, these tiny super fruits pack a big antioxidant punch. Or better yet, a flurry of punches: Studies suggest that eating blueberries regularly can help improve everything from memory and motor skills to blood pressure and metabolism. (Wild blueberries, in particular, have one of the highest concentrations of the powerful antioxidants known as anthocyanins.)

Blueberries are also lower in calories than a lot of other fruits (they contain just 80 per cup), so you can pile them onto your cereal without worrying about your waistline.


7) Strawberries - 

"Berries are superfoods because they're so high in antioxidants without being high in calories," Giovinazzo says. One cup of strawberries, for instance, contains your full recommended daily intake of vitamin C, along with high quantities of folic acid and fiber.

Strawberries are good for your ticker, too. A 2013 study found that women were less likely to have a heart attack over an 18-year period if they ate more than three servings of strawberries or blueberries per week. (Strawberries, like blueberries, are a good source of anthocyanins.)
