We all know eating breakfast is important in getting slim and curbing your appetite later in the day… But just because we all should be eating breakfast doesn’t make it a “free” meal. Today our personal trainers in Durham are sharing some mistakes that could result in you packing on some extra pounds:
You Drink the Juice:
Juice is packed with sugar… Go for the real fruit instead. It is not only more filling but contains more fiber! Plus who doesn’t love to chew!
You Eat the Cereal:
Cereal is packed with carbs, even if you go for the healthy option. If you eat cereal, make sure you measure out a serving and don’t leave the box out so you’re not tempted to pour more.
You Down the Bagel:
It’s important to think of bagels as a treat if you want to lose weight. Did you know? Most bagels are equivalent to about five pieces of bread, PLUS the toppings. If you love bread, go for the whole wheat toast!
You go for the Sugary Fruity Yogurt:
yogurt can be a great choice in the morning but make sure you go with a plain, non-fat or low-fat option and then top it with your favorite fruit. The yogurts with fruit already added tend to have tons of extra sugar and additives. Go for the fresh fruit and save some calories!
There you have it folks! Some tips from our personal trainers in Durham to help you start your day right! What’s your favorite healthy breakfast? We’d love to hear!
