Beat breakfast blues

Beat breakfast blues

Whether you’re a morning person or not there is no dispute that breakfast is equally important meal of the day as the rest of them. Starting your day with a healthy breakfast can help regulate your blood sugar levels and keep you energized in the morning.  Hopefully with this article we can convince you to start eating breakfast.

Do:

  • Do eat low-glucose, high-fiber foods such as oats. Oats help lower your blood sugar and keep you satiated longer, which is an excellent combination for weight control.
  • Do eat proteins for breakfast. The lack of protein might be the reason, why your breakfast doesn’t keep you satiated for long enough. The remedy can include eggs, Greek yogurt, peanut butter, cottage cheese, chicken sausage and even quinoa.

Don’t:

  • Don’t skip breakfast. Even if you don’t want to eat anything so early in the morning, try to eat a little bit more each day. In just a few weeks you will see the difference and be the type of person who needs breakfast to function properly. Prepearing overnight oats can help you start this process.
  • Don’t be “grain-phobic”. Unless you suffer from coeliac disease or other gluten intolerance, it is very important to eat grains because they are full of fiber and vitamins. Ideal selections include soy and linseed toast, rolled oats and whole grain cereals. Make sure you keep the sugar content below 10 grams per 100 grams.

More don’ts:

  • Don’t think that your morning meal is a magic bullet for weight loss. Eating breakfast does not improve your metabolism or have any other weight loss superpowers. The calories you consume at breakfast matter just as much as the calories you eat at every other meal.
  • Don’t go “carb crazy”. Many typical breakfasts, such as cereal, pancakes or bagels, include plenty of carbohydrates but little of anything else. A high-sugar, high-carb meal may leave you feeling hungry again soon after you eat.
