If you’re trying to lose weight, you might want to consider putting yogurt on the breakfast menu.
Did you make a New Year’s resolution to eat right and lose weight in 2017? If so, you’re in good company. According to 2015 research reported by Statistic Brain, 45% of Americans usually do make a New Year’s resolution and losing weight comes in number one on the top ten list of the most popular. If you’re on a mission to drop some pounds, you really want to make sure you eat the best breakfast to help you reach your goal in 2017.
Here are some healthy items you’ll want to be sure to include in your best breakfast to keep you fueled for the day.
Raspberries – Just one cup contains 8 grams a fiber. Recent research in the Journal of Nutrition suggests eating more fiber can help prevent weight gain or encourage weight loss. Researchers found during the two-year study that increasing fiber by 8 grams for every 1,000 calories resulted in about 4 ½ pounds of weight lost. Pro-tip: put those raspberries on top of a bowl of oatmeal for added fiber and slow-release carbohydrates that won’t spike your insulin.
Yogurt – A Harvard report that was published in the New England Journal of Medicine listed yogurt as one of the top five foods that promote weight loss. Research shows that this high protein choice can help you lose weight and gain lean muscle mass. Be sure to choose low fat and low sugar options, such as non-fat plain Greek yogurt. Pump up the flavor with fresh fruit, like raspberries.
Eggs – They’re packed with protein and will help keep you full until your next meal. Besides that, eggs make for the best breakfast because they can be prepared in endless variations so you won’t get bored.
