Eat breakfast…

Eating breakfast is associated with LESS overweight and obesity

However, I don’t suggest the breakfast in the picture:

  • White bread goes straight to sugar, raises your blood sugar; when your blood sugar then plummets, you’ll be hungry again.  Whole grains are better.  But, not every brown bread is whole grain; many brown-colored breads are white bread with added caramel color
  • Bacon has nitrites (preservatives) in it; processed meats seem to be associated with more heart disease.
  • To add fat, eat healthy fats… a few nuts (unsalted), or olive oil.  Margarine is worse than even butter.

I suggest as alternatives:

  • My oatmeal, with protein powder, skim milk, cinnamon, cocoa
  • Fat-free yogurt with added nuts and fruit (Note:  yogurt that comes with fruit in it is usually PACKED with sugar and is to be avoided)
  • Egg white omelet with a TEAspoon of olive oil
