We all know that eating breakfast is key, but did you know what you eat for breakfast has a lot to do with speeding up your weight loss? Studies show that people who eat a fiber and protein-rich breakfast vs. empty carbs eat nearly 450 fewer calories the rest of the day. That's HUGE!
Bumping up protein and fiber at breakfast may just be the secret weapon to bypass those midday sweet cravings as they start calling your name. And here's why: our bodies take longer to digest protein and fiber, keeping our blood sugar from spiking and crashing, which is what leads to cravings. Talk about a winning team!
For your morning breakfast fix, think 0% Greek yogurt with a high-fiber cereal topping, or steel cut oats with either protein powder stirred in or a side of egg whites - how's that for a new breakfast combo?
