Four Fabulous Breakfast Foods for Weight Loss


Poached Egg on Toast

Breakfast arguably is the most important meal of the day. Studies show that a healthy breakfast each day assures a more nutritionally complete diet that's higher in nutrients, vitamins and minerals; boosts concentration and performance on the job; improves physical activity; and lowers cholesterol levels. Plus, it aids in weight loss.

?

That's right. Though it may seem counterintuitive, skipping breakfast can actually hinder your weight loss efforts, making you more apt to nibble on high-calorie snacks throughout the day or gorge at your next meal. In fact, studies show that breakfast skippers tend to add more body fat when they eat fewer, larger meals than when they eat the same number of calories in smaller, more frequent meals. Despite these benefits, some 20 percent of Americans don't eat breakfast regularly.

Of course, success depends upon starting your day with truly healthy choices - bear claws not included. Metabolic Research Center offers these suggestions for starting your day with a healthy, weight loss friendly breakfast:

?

  1. Poached or hard-boiled eggs: In one study, participants who ate two eggs for breakfast lost 65 percent more weight and showed a 61-percent greater reduction in BMI (body mass index) than those who ate a bagel.

  2. Raspberries: ?In one study, researchers found that increasing fiber intake by 8 grams for every 1,000 calories resulted in about 4.5 pounds of weight lost. That's because fiber helps to keep you feeling full and less likely to overeat throughout the day. And one cup of fresh raspberries packs eight grams of fiber.

  3. Oatmeal: Not only is it packed with fiber, it's also made with slow-release carbohydrates, which won't spike blood sugar as high as refined carbs. Eat a bowl three hours before exercising to burn more fat.

  4. Yogurt: It's a top source of protein, which can help you feel fuller and get leaner.
