Breakfast has been deemed “the most important meals of the day” for health and weight loss. It not only jump starts your metabolism, but gives you energy to take on your day and prevents that “starved” feeling that sometimes causes you to overeat calories.

Avoid these breakfast mistakes that could derail you from a potentially healthy meal!

  1. Portion sizes

Whether it’s overnight oats or a smoothie, just because a food is healthy doesn’t mean you can have an unlimited amount of it. Portion sizes matter, and measuring or weighing ingredients will ensure that you stay within your limits.

  1. Forgetting your fats

Make sure your breakfast has at least 10-15 grams of healthy fat to keep you feeing full and satisfied long after your meal. Avocado, nut butters, chia seeds…

  1. Processed carbs

Loading up on refined carbs (aka: sugar) will leave you feeling extra hungry soon after your meal. Aim for complex carbs in lieu of cereals, muffins, bagels, or breakfast bars.
