Best Breakfast For Weight Loss 

Eating foods that have low calorie content & fats are the best breakfast for weight loss. Breakfast is the most important meal of the day as there is a gap of around 10 to 12 hours between your last meal of the previous day that is the dinner & the breakfast. The moment you wake up, your brain sends messages to the stomach & it starts functioning. If you are delaying in eating your breakfast or skipping it then you are making yourself susceptible for several diseases. Acid reflux is one of the disorders that you might be affected with if you are not having your breakfast or are postponing it. So, have a good breakfast but see to it that you are not stocking up calories by overindulging.

You can have plain fruit or vegetable salad as the fibers in them will keep your stomach full & prevent you from overeating. You can also eat 2 or 3 tomatoes & a cup of skim milk, green or herbal tea or yoghurt for your breakfast. Vegetable juices are also one of the best breakfasts for weight loss. Cereals, oatmeals, brans or whole grain bread are also healthy breakfast for weight loss. Do not skip drinking 1 or 2 glasses of warm water immediately after getting up in the morning.
