5 Low Calorie Breakfast Recipes Get You Ready for the Day
The truth is, breakfast is our most ignored meal. Most of us can close our eyes to it.
As such, we prefer calorie, quick-consumption, and effortless foods to quickly take it. So we start the day with lots of calories.
Since we continue to consume calories for the rest of the day, we get more than we need daily and close the day with excess calories. And this inevitably leads to weight gain.
That’s why starting your days with one of these low calorie breakfast recipes for a week or two will eventually leave you calorie deficit, and as a result, help you to lose weight.
Also, as a footnote, we advise you not to delay breakfast too long. Because you have a real reason not to do it:
Having breakfast long after waking up causes our metabolism to work slowly until that hour. Increased stomach acid can sometimes make us feel more restless.
Having a delayed breakfast is one of the reasons why you feel more hungry during the day. For this reason, have your breakfast not later than 1.5 hours after waking up.
Now, we have compiled delicious recipes for you to spend this meal efficiently and low-calorie. Let’s take a look at them all:
