Some experts believe eating breakfast keeps your metabolism running because skipping meals causes the body to kick into 'starvation' mode. While any breakfast may be better than no breakfast, there are some foods you might want to avoid because they're high in sugars, sodium, saturated fats and calories. Cut back on sugary cereals (over 5.0 grams per serving), high-calorie pastries, and meats like bacon and sausage that are high in saturated fat and sodium.
Your dailiy breakfast should include protein and plenty of fiber; the combination will help satisfy your hunger and will keep you feeling full until lunch time. Healthy sources of protein can come from low-fat meat, eggs, nuts or dairy products. High-fiber foods include fruits, vegetables and whole grains. Try a hard boiled egg, whole grain toast and 100% fruit juice with no added sugar, or a bowl of whole-grain cereal with berries and low-fat milk.
