For a long time, you must be thinking that even after eating less and working out more, your weight is remaining same, and it is really becoming troublesome for you to lose weight quickly. The fact that you need to be clear about is that eating less or working out more is not exactly a solution to weight loss. You must eat a balanced diet and of course, each meal should be taken on time to increase the metabolism and thereby to get rid of the excess fat.
During the process of shedding weight, the most common mistakes that people tend to do is to skip breakfast. Skipping breakfast is the most dangerous thing as it can harm your digestive function besides causing low energy, fatigue and weight gain. Skipping breakfast is not at all the solution for getting a healthy body and mind. You need to be careful about what you are eating and how much you are eating for the breakfast. Just a healthy change in your breakfast routine can lead you towards your goal of losing weight. Let’s go through some of the most common breakfast mistakes that cause rapid weight gain.
- Make Time for Breakfast:
You must maintain a particular time for breakfast. Maintaining an eating schedule is extremely important as this will boost your energy level which will help you to do the other chores throughout the day without getting tired. You need to eat healthy food and a good quantity of food for breakfast. Nothing can be more beneficial than a healthy breakfast for your overall physical and mental health. If you skip your breakfast, you will not get enough energy to shed weight by working out.
- Breakfast must not contain junk foods:
A person needs to think twice before having the first bite of the breakfast. If your breakfast includes junk fast foods, you seriously need to avoid them. Packed foods and fast foods may be the easiest way to have the breakfast during the morning, and it may also save a lot of time but will definitely not save your health. Even at offices you may tend to gorge on some junk pastries in the name of treats given by colleagues and friends, but this is where you are allowing your body to put on extra weight. So think and eat as it is always better to taste your goal of shedding weight than to taste some unnecessary junk foods.
- Choose the Juice:
Here is indeed another mistake that people do. Most of us think that having canned or packed juice at the breakfast can be beneficial and therefore gulps a glass of fruit juice. But that’s not right at all as the canned or packed juices contain various preservatives and lots of artificial flavors and of course a high level of sugar. All these things together in a packed canned juice can be harmful to your enzymes as well as you will see an unhealthy increase in your body weight. Hence, it is recommended to go for real fruit juices instead of artificial juice. You can also have fruit salads for breakfasts if making juices is a time-consuming job for you.
- Choose the healthy way:
If you think about having some pancakes or waffles for the breakfast is a better option, then you are absolutely wrong. You can have whole grain toasts or cereals instead of pancakes or waffles with sugary syrups, for the breakfast. Such whole grain cereals are rich in fiber and will never allow the body fast to increase. Instead, it will increase the digestion and will make you feel light and healthy.
- Be prepared for hunger pangs:
This is the trickiest one. Most of the people tend to eat whatever they get easily during sudden hunger. It is seen that a large number of people eat junk and oily as well as foods that are high in sugar levels during such times. You need to fight hunger pangs with healthy snacks, and it can only be possible if you keep yourself prepared for it. This means you need to carry some good protein bars or nuts with you which will not only be good to eat but will also provide much energy to your body.
- Don’t depend on vending machines:
Just as you enter your office premises, there is a tendency to bend on the vending machines. Often people eat whatever they get from the vending machines. Those snacks are high in calories and will definitely cause weight gain. Instead of having doughnuts, you can go for the peanuts from the vending machine that will help in boosting the energy level.
- Proper buffet can be beneficial:
A proper meal at the breakfast instead of skipping it can be beneficial for your body. Breakfasts must be heavy, and lunch, as well as dinner, should be kept light. This will help you to digest properly and thereby can keep your body weight under control. You just need to avoid muffins, cocktails and should have the guts to deprive your sweet tooth to resist weight gain.
- Water to keep yourself hydrated:
Not only at the breakfast but throughout the day, you need to keep yourself hydrated. Drink plenty of water right in the morning as this will keep your body hydrated and will help in getting rid of the toxins from the body. Not only in the morning but drinking water frequently throughout the day will be beneficial and will keep your hunger in control.
- Beware of heavy cocktails:
One must not have heavy punched cocktails with breakfast. Simple water or real fruit juices are all that will not allow your body to gain unhealthy weight. Simple fruit juices can be replaced by cocktails.
- Avoid breakfast bars:
It is better not to go for the breakfast bars as they are high in sugar content. It is better to have fresh cereals and oatmeal during breakfast.
If you follow these simple steps without skipping the breakfast, you can see the healthy result within a short span of time.
