The Best Breakfast For Weight Loss: 5 Tasty Options

The Best Breakfast For Weight Loss

The best breakfast for weight loss is a breakfast that is high in protein, fibre and low in calories. Although a bad breakfast option for weight loss is a breakfast that’s high in refined carbs doesn’t include much protein and high in fat.

Is Eating Breakfast Important For Losing Weight?

In short, the answer is no. Because you can quite easily do an intermittent fasting protocol. like the lean gains 16:8 method of fasting.

This is where you fast (don’t eat for 16 hours and then you eat for 8 hours) Most people fast from 8-9 pm to 12- 1 pm the next day.

This means that you skip breakfast.

And as long as you’re in a calorie deficit. Which means eating fewer calories than you burn. Then it doesn’t matter if you do intermittent fasting or not. You’ll lose weight regardless.

From My Experience. The Majority Of People Prefer Eating Breakfast & Find Intermittent Fasting Uncomfortable.

I’ve also found that eating a good breakfast can help stave off hunger and help with weight loss. I’ve experienced this myself and when speaking to others.

So Here Are 5 Breakfast’s That Will Get Your Day Off To A Good Start.

1. Protein Oats ( Proats) With Greek Yoghurt And Blueberries.

Oats are a great source of fiber and complex carbohydrates. They’re delicious and will keep you full for hours. If you add some berries and protein powder you’ll increase the quality of this meal.

Because berries are very low in calories yet also high in fibre and volume. And protein is the most satiating and thermogenic macronutrient you can eat.

So with this meal, you get a good amount of protein and fibre and a decent helping.
Here’s the recipe I like to use to make my proats:


40 grams of oats.

30 grams of chocolate protein powder.

1 Banana or berries.

2. Mix with 30 grams of protein powder.

3. Add water to create a smooth consistency.

4. Put it in the microwave until it firms up to a smooth texture.

5. Break up a banana or add 50-100 grams of berries.
