Four Best Breakfast Options For Weight Loss

By |October 5th, 2016|

“Breakfast is the most important meal of the day!” You’ve probably heard this a 1000 times throughout your life. It’s not exactly true, but when it comes to weight loss every single meal is important. There are no exceptions, as every encounter you have with food is a chance to work toward your weight loss goal, or a potential setback. Breakfast is especially challenging though because when you wake up you’re probably in a rush to get somewhere else, and eat whatever is the most available. And let’s be honest, that’s not always the most healthy food. But, two nutritionists, who spoke with Pop Sugar, are here to help you find the healthiest breakfasts.

Their advice is based on finding breakfasts that get close to the ideal formula of various food attributes like fat, calories, carbs, protein, etc. They’ve done the work to calculate these ideal numbers so you don’t have to, and recommend that you eat within 30-60 minutes of waking up.

Here are the four healthiest breakfasts you can have, based on their research, recipes included!
