Eat a smart breakfast to obtain a reduced risk of weight gain.
" In a study that included 20,000 middle-aged men, researchers found that breakfast consumption was inversely associated with weight gain over 10 years" news.yahoo.com/13-habits
Get in the habit of eating a smart breakfast, meaning one that will keep you full of energy all morning. "Smart breakfast choices include a good balance of healthy fat, lean protein and carbs, like an egg white omelet cooked with olive oil and sauteed spinach" news.yahoo.com/13-habits
Makes sense since people who eat a healthy breakfast are less inclined to eat a high sugar snack, etc. before lunch; and eating healthy carbs such as spinach, broccoli, cauliflower, asparagus, cucumber, mushrooms or green peppers in lieu of processed carbs helps keep you feeling full.
My wife often adds three or more of these vegetables to her omelets. If I were looking to loose weight, I would consider asking my wife about omitting egg yolks from the omelet but I am not.
What are your ideas of a healthy breakfast?
Do you avoid eating processed foods such as bread, pancakes, cereal or muffins that quickly build up sugars in your blood?
