What Is The Best Breakfast For Weight Loss?
Today I’m going to tell you not only my favorite meal to eat in the morning but I’m also going to show you all the components of the best breakfast for weight loss so you can create your own super fat burning meal.
There’s no doubt about it that breakfast is going to be the most important meal of the day when it comes to burning fat. The simple reason for this is your body has been in a fasted state for the past 8 or so hours while you were asleep.
During this time your metabolism slows down and this is why you usually don’t wake up in the middle of the night starving for something to eat. So eating a healthy breakfast is going to be very important if you’re planning on jump starting your metabolism for the day.
I don’t know why but for most people eating breakfast is one of the biggest chores in the world for them. And this is probably one of the worst things you can do if you’re intending on burning some fat. Your metabolism is already going at a snails pace and if you continue to starve your body even longer then you’re going to also slow your metabolism even further as well.
Ideally the best breakfast for weight loss is going to be eaten within 30 minutes of waking and waiting any longer will prevent your body from burning fat effectively. And another critical element for a fat torching breakfast is to make sure it contains at least 25-30g of protein in it.
Most people unfortunately are eating the exact OPPOSITE of what they should be eating for breakfast if they’re intending to lose weight. Here’s what the typical breakfast looks like:
- A bowl of cereal with milk
- English muffin
- Orange juice
As you can see all the items above will cause you to put on fat rather than keep it off.
The cereal (no matter how healthy it appears) is usually made out of some kind of flour or grain which will spike your blood sugar and insulin levels. Milk also causes an insulin response in your body and the orange juice contains a ton of sugar in the form of fructose which will also crank up your insulin levels.
All of this is a recipe to pack on the belly fat and keep it there.
Here Is The Best Breakfast For Weight Loss
- 2-3 whole eggs with turmeric sprinkled on top
- 1-2 cup of spinach
- 1-2 slices of turkey bacon (nitrate free)
- 1 cup of black beans (no sodium added)
- Glass of cold water mixed with Athletic Greens
As you can see this breakfast is loaded with protein and vegetables. I always recommend eating whole eggs instead of egg whites because the former has more nutrients.
You can read more why I prefer whole eggs in my egg whites vs egg yolks post.
I usually sauté the spinach in the frying pan with some macadamia nut oil and then I’ll mix in the eggs with it. I sprinkle some turmeric on top which is a powerful anti-inflammatory and also a well known anti-cancer spice.
The black beans or I also like to replace them with lentils are a good source of carbohydrates for the rest of the day and they won’t elevate your blood sugar or insulin levels.
And to top it off I’ll drink a cold glass full of water and mixed with Athletic Greens.
How To Make Your Own Best Breakfast For Weight Loss
To make sure you’re eating your own killer breakfast to burn fat make sure it doesn’t contain any flour, grains, milk, fruit, sugar, juices or smoothies.
Eggs are healthy for weight loss and they also taste absolutely delicious.
Remember your ideal belly fat blasting breakfast is going to contain 25-30g of protein and it should be eaten within 30 minutes of waking up. If you absolutely HATE eating breakfast and you’re not willing to make any changes then try drinking a healthy protein shake upon waking and then you can eat this meal 3-4 hours later.
But any time you eat it I still consider it to be my favorite and the best breakfast for weight loss!
