- 5 Nutrition Mistakes You’re Probably Making At Breakfast - September 19, 2018
Surely you’ve heard that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, right? When we get up our blood sugar levels are lower and since our brain is mainly fed on glucose, it is time to provide energy to start the day, but not always what we eat is the most healthy to recharge the batteries. Next, we expose you 5 errors that you are probably committing to your breakfast.
Skip the breakfast
Today there are contradictory studies on whether not having breakfast is directly associated with developing overweight or obesity, however what is proven is that breakfast helps you to cope with the day with more energy and perform more, in addition to reducing hunger until the meal time So if you are a person that needs to be concentrated or that your work requires intense physical activity, you should not skip it.
Do not incorporate proteins
Serious error especially if you are following a diet to lose weight. It is very common to dispense with the protein at breakfast when it keeps us sated for much longer. Some foods rich in protein recommended in your breakfast are skim milk products, eggs, turkey luncheon, raw and unsalted nuts, etc. You will see that if you combine your breakfast with some protein you arrive with less hunger to the food.
Ingest commercial juices
As we always tell you in the consultations, it is better to consume the whole pieces of fruit and to be possible with skin than with juice. Starting from the base that the juice is natural, the whole fruit provides much more fiber if you take it with the skin, besides generating more satiety. If we already talk about commercial juices, with them you will be ingesting an important amount of sugar similar to that contained in some sugary drinks, as well as not providing the vitamins and fiber contained in the fruits with which the juice is made.
Abuse of industrial products
Breakfast cereals, cookies, muffins, there are countless “typical breakfast” products that besides having little nutritional value, provide us with many calories, simple sugars, additives, and trans fats, so related to the famous overweight and cardiovascular diseases. If one day you can not resist the sweet, we recommend that what you eat is homemade, you will know perfectly the ingredients that make it up.
Eat little fiber
This point is completely related to the previous ones. We live in a society in which we do not have time for anything and to eat something, you choose any product from the supermarket full of simple sugars and refined flours. We give you some advice, bring the alarm a little forward and enjoy breakfast, whole-grain rye toast, vegetables, fruits, and nuts, will be your best allies to better go to the bathroom and stay satiated for longer.
Remember! The ideal is to consume as a base a whole grain, plus a piece of whole fruit and a dairy, and if you can also combine it with something more lean protein or vegetable, and a healthy fat like olive oil or a few pieces of avocado.
