You may have heard your mom saying that eating a healthy breakfast is the most important meal of the day a thousand times. Many tend to skip breakfast due to leading a stressed on-the-go lifestyle or they reckon that a calorie is a calorie, no matter what time you consume it.
Why is eating a healthy breakfast SO important for weight-loss?
The problem with skipping breakfast is that by the time you get something to eat, you are completely ravenous, which lowers your ability to pick the healthiest option out of what’s available. Studies show that breakfasts eaten later than 10:30am contain a much higher level of saturated fats and refined carbohydrates, which are big no-no’s if you want to get rid of cellulite, shed a few pounds or just keep your weight from fluctuating.
A study conducted in 2013 by the University of Missouri-Columbia proved that a breakfast high in protein is the best way to suppress cravings, build lean muscle and improve your chances of weight-loss. The early protein-punch helps to produce a peptide known as YY, which is a satiety signaler. Some studies also suggest that those who consume a healthy breakfast are also more likely to exercise and make positive lifestyle changes. Some scientists even suggest that the occurrence of depressive spells and emotional eating is much less in those who consume protein packed breakfasts.
Our best choices for high protein and healthy breakfasts are:
