Since my childhood my mom has always forced me to have my breakfast at any cost; even if I didn’t take my lunch at times, all she used to care about was my breakfast. Although I never understood her obsession with breakfast the, now I surely know that breakfast plays a huge role in your life. Undoubtedly your weight loss program is quite a ride and you need to take care of your diet as well as your workout schedule time to time, but, what more important is, your breakfast.

Breakfast is the most important part of the meal. If you’re not eating breakfast, you’re not doing anything right. Skipping your breakfast simply means you’re slowing down or may be even stopping your metabolism. Therefore, as a Nutritionist Consultant in California, I suggest that during your weight loss program, be sure to have a healthy and heavy breakfast before you start your day. Here’s what can be called as an ideal breakfast meal plan while you’re trying to lose weight —

Green Tea—your morning should start with green tea as it is the natural metabolism booster and works as anti-oxidant too. If you are a coffee person, then try drinking black coffee instead of a cappuccino in the morning.

Egg – My all-time favorite breakfast. Easy to cook and with a lot of proteins, a whole hardboiled egg in the morning will give you a lot of energy and a lot of other benefits. You can also combine them with whole wheat toasts, topped as poached or eat scrambled eggs.

Fruits – Fruits are the best when you want to eat something on breakfast that won’t involve any cooking. They contain a lot of water, fiber, vitamins and a lot of other nutrients that will keep you satisfied for the rest of the day. You can eat watermelons, grapes, apples, kiwis, bananas, pears, raspberries and blueberries on your breakfast.

Whole wheat breads – Whole wheat breads are full of fibers. They can make you feel full for a long time. Just make sure you do not add any calories in the shape of jelly or peanut butter.

Oats – I know oats can be really boring at times but it is the best breakfast option when you’re trying to lose weight. It has a lot of fibers, protein and resistant starch. And trust me; oats literally help in burning body fat and boosting your body metabolism. Top them with nuts, vegetables or some fruits to get extra taste and flavors.
