Breakfast is still the most important meal of your day, but how do you make a healthy breakfast for weight loss when you’re on Weight Watchers? Here are five tips that I use to help me on my weight loss journey.
Healthy Breakfast for Weight Loss Tip #1
Don’t eat carbs as your first meal. This is so important. Remember that post I wrote back in 2016 on Insulin? Well, it turns out that having carbs in the morning really jacks up your insulin for the day and increases hunger and cravings throughout the day. It also wreaks havoc on fat burning.
When I first learned about the effect of insulin on my weight loss efforts, I was both surprised and a bit discouraged. I’ve grown up eating cereal and fed my kids cereal too. They still eat cereal. I’m trying to change that. I switched to oatmeal when I learned about the dangers of high-fructose corn syrup and switched the kids to organic cereal, but that still doesn’t cut it.
What’s a busy mom to do? After all, who has time for eggs in the morning?
Healthy Breakfast for Weight Loss Tip #2
Prepare your breakfast in advance. Perhaps you have more time on the weekends or have time to prep the night before. Ideas include egg muffins, cloud bread, cauliflower muffins and so much more. Follow my Pinterest board for more ideas.
Healthy Breakfast for Weight Loss Tip #3
Grab a protein shake. I love Premier Protein shakes, and they’re only 2 Smart Points. I drink them when I’m on the go and have also used them in my coffee as a low point high protein alternative to creamer. You can blend some kale and greens in yours to get those veggies in.
Healthy Breakfast for Weight Loss Tip #4
If you’re running late and need to stop by a restaurant, you can snag an egg white, piece of bacon, or sausage patty from almost any of the local fast food places. If they’re a veggie sausage patty, you might want to give that a try.
There are so many options for a healthy breakfast for weight loss. If you have time, try to make your meals from home. It’s cheaper and healthier for you. If not, I hope this blog post helped you think about other ways you can have a healthy breakfast.
