The #1 Worst Breakfast Habit For Weight Loss, Says Dietitian

Published

on

There is no question a healthy breakfast can truly kickstart your day. That first meal is your opportunity to fuel up with foods that will give you energy and keep you satiated.

But, you’re not alone if sometimes a leisurely healthy breakfast can feel a bit like a dream rather than reality. Whether you aren’t hungry when you wake up, you’re too busy to sit down for your meal or you’re skipping out in the hopes of losing weight, you could be unknowingly sabotaging your weight loss goals.

We consulted with Lisa Moskovitz, RD, CEO of NY Nutrition Group, author of The Core 3 Healthy Eating Plan, and member of our medical expert board, who explained that the worst breakfast habit when you’re trying to lose weight is skipping the meal altogether.

“When you’re working towards weight loss, it may seem intuitive to try to cut back on calories as much as possible,” says Moskovitz. “This can include skimping on meals or even skipping them entirely: breakfast is usually the first meal to go.”

Even though you may think that taking in fewer calories in the morning is the right way to lose weight, it’s not.

“What you eat, or don’t eat, for breakfast can either help or hurt your energy reserve, concentration, digestion, mood, hunger levels, and metabolic function the rest of the day,” says Moskovitz.

Not only will it be harder to lose weight if you decide to skip breakfast, but you’ll also likely feel tired, hungry, and moody—definitely not the way to go for your overall health.

So, rather than cutting out breakfast for weight loss, which most likely won’t even work, Moskovitz suggests going for a combination of fiber, protein, and fat—a trio she calls “the winning trifecta for healthy weight loss.”

Moskovitz recommends smoothies, yogurt bowls, almond butter toast, or a protein bar for quick and easy breakfast solutions that can actually help you lose weight.
