I Made These 3 Changes at Breakfast and Finally Started Losing Weight


You might have been following a proper diet for losing weight. You might not skip your meals or breakfast. Yet you might not be losing weight as expected. Though breakfast is the key to boosting metabolism, there are some mistakes that you might be making. The three huge mistakes that you need to change are given below. Make these changes and see the difference in how your body looks.
Avoid cereal for breakfast
Just as some of us can barely function without a morning cup of coffee, others can’t imagine starting their day without a bowl of cereal. Cereal is easy to prepare and it’s relatively inexpensive compared to other a.m. favourites like yogurt parfaits and coffee-shop egg sandwiches. Not to mention, those delicious, colourful flakes and are downright delicious. But when you’re trying to lose weight, picking just any variety won’t do. Cereal is easy to prepare and it’s relatively inexpensive compared to other a.m. favourites like yogurt parfaits and coffee-shop egg sandwiches. Not to mention, those delicious, colourful flakes and are downright delicious. But when you’re trying to lose weight, picking just any variety won’t do. Pick from oatmeal, wheat germ, Greek yogurt, grapefruit and foods containing protein. According to one study, eating half a grapefruit before each meal may help you slim down faster, thanks to the fruit's fat-burning properties and its beneficial effect on blood sugar and insulin levels. Include good protein sources like egg and almond butter.
Right time to have breakfast
It is usually advised that the best time to have your breakfast is between 7.15 and 7.45 am which would be approximately half an hour after you wake up. However, it is better to give some workout to your body before breakfast. According to one study, eating half a grapefruit before each meal may help you slim down faster, thanks to the fruit's fat-burning properties and its beneficial effect on blood sugar and insulin levels.  Although there is still some debate, the evidence is growing that doing aerobics or cardio first thing in the morning on an empty stomach is good for fat loss. The argument is that after an overnight 8-12 hour fast, your body’s stores of glycogen are reduced and you burn more fat when glycogen levels are low. Eating breakfast causes a release of insulin which interferes with the mobilization of body fat. Less insulin is present in the morning; so more body fat is burned when exercise is done in the morning. There is less carbohydrate (glucose) in the bloodstream when you wake up after an overnight fast. With less glucose available, you are likely to burn more fat.
Measure what you eat
Another huge mistake that we all do is that we never measured anything, especially not our breakfast. We usually grab our breakfast in such a hurry that we just eat how much ever we can grab. We also like to usually mix different cereals, add raisins, peanuts, blueberries or banana and more. When it comes to eating less, researchers have long known that a simple way to cut calories is to use a smaller plates and use smaller spoons. Eating with a fork instead of a spoon can help you lose weight, new research suggests. Pay more attention to serving sizes with the help of measuring cups and spoons. Instead of eyeballing, always stick to measuring cups and spoons. This will help you to strictly follow your weight loss diet properly and achieve your goal.
