Crazy life rhythm, sorely lacking spare time are major challenges for healthy eating. Very often, we don’t have enough time for having the most important meal of the day, which is breakfast. Yet, it should not make you think that all you have to do is hastily gnaw on a chocolate bar, washing it down with a cup of sweet tea or coffee or get to your office, hastily shaking off the crumbles of a croissant with butter cream from your blouse.

Does it sound like you? Then, we advise you to hurry up and familiarize yourself with the products, which will help you create a simple and healthy breakfast for loosing weight in just five minutes. It will be very useful if you follow 3 simple steps about this list of products. You should:

Oatmeal

Fast and successful weight loss process may only be achieved if you use a natural cereal, instead of the largely advertised breakfast cereals with excessive sugar content, as well as harmful trans fats and various additives.

Cottage cheese

Cottage cheeseCottage cheese is a fantastic product for breakfast before workout or after it since:

  • it contains the dairy protein (casein) that may replace animal protein
  • it has a high nutritional value
  • you should eat only 300 grams of cottage cheese per day to make up for the required daily norm of protein
  • lactic acid bacteria improve digestion and regulate intestinal peristalsis.
  • amino acids protect liver tissue and improve its work.

Fruits and berries

Fruits and berriesThese products will improve your intestinal activity and help you feel full due to the dietary fiber they contain. However, substituting your breakfast for weight loss only with a serving of fruit and berries is strongly not recommended. If you combine them with yogurt or cottage cheese, you will get a lot more benefit from them, as well as a longer fullness.

In winter time, you may switch to dried berries and fruit, but pay careful attention to their processing, since it may include sugar saturation, which will surely not benefit your fast weight loss plan.

Tip: a glass of freshly squeezed juice that so many fans of healthy eating love, is, in fact, not the best choice you can make. It contains a large amount of "fast sugars", which are strongly not recommended to be consumed in the morning, since they:

  • sharply increase the glucose blood level,
  • provoke hunger,
  • promote weight gain.
  • Great to combine with: yogurt, cottage cheese, oatmeal.

Coffee

CoffeeCoffee is a product that many people find indispensable for a morning meal. However, if you are one of those who prefer having just coffee in the morning, you should remember that it is a drink, and not a breakfast sustitute. However, coffee contains many useful elements, like flavonoids, minerals, and anti-oxidants, due to which it:

  • increases focus
  • improves efficiency
  • boosts energy.

Tip: always drink natural coffee, without adding sugar, cream or ice cream!

Green tea

Green tea is a great alternative to coffee, since it contains a caffeine analog, named theine, which:

  • activates brain activity,
  • improves mood,
  • enhances performance,
  • boosts efficiency.
