Weight loss(Africa's Healthy Choices)

If losing weight is one of your resolutions, then you have to try a little harder. Exercising alone will not shed those pounds. You will have to work on your diet as well. And that means ditching some eating habits and adopting healthier ones.

It’s not going to be easy for sure, but you can do it if you are willing to. Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. And do we have to be reminded that every day?

Anyways, if you are looking forward to losing weight, we have made a list of some of the best foods you should be eating for breakfast:

1. Eggs


Thought eggs are a bad idea for weight loss? Not at all. Studies show that people who eat eggs for breakfast fill fuller all thanks to their protein content. This translates to eating less food later in the day hence boosting weight loss.

2. Yogurt

Mhmm, who said the weight loss diet has to be boring and tasteless. We all love yogurt and yes, you can eat it for breakfast if you want to lose weight. It increases satiety thus reducing hunger levels.
