Healthy Breakfast for Weight Loss
Welcome to my Healthy Breakfast for Weight Loss post where I teach how you can lose weight by eating nutrient dense foods. Before you skip another breakfast because you just don’t have time in the morning, I strongly encourage you to go to my previous post titled: “Why Most People Never Lose Weight”. Breakfast means we are ‘breaking our fast’. Many nutritional experts agree that eating breakfast like a King, dinner like a Queen and supper like a Pauper is the healthiest dietary habits you can have.
I did not grow up eating the healthy diet that I now have. For many years I ate meats like bacon, ham and sausage with eggs and biscuits. When I learned that animal products are high in fat and cholesterol, I gradually started eliminating animal products from my diet. Ever since I got serious about what I put in my body in 2001, I have not struggled with a weight problem. Here are the foods that I have enjoyed for breakfast since 2001.
Hydrating the body first thing in the morning is very important. I start the day by drinking a quart of pure water. I have my last large glass of water of the day in the late afternoon about 4:30 pm. Just before bed I drink about 6 ounces of water when I take a Peak Systemic Enzyme
Water is so vital to our overall health. Many people are dehydrated. Our body needs 1/2 of our ideal body weight in fluid ounces of pure water each day. Coffee, tea and sodas do not count. If the weather is hot, your body will need more than the recommendation above. So if you weigh 150 pounds, you need to drink at least 75 ounces of pure water each day.
One other tip about water is drink about 12 ounces of water at least 30 minutes before your meals. Do not drink anything while you are eating and wait another hour before you drink anything else. The reason behind this hydration principle is that drinking fluids while eating will hinder the digestion process. We want the gastric juices to break down our food and this is best done by drinking the water 30 minutes before eating.
Fruit is loaded with nutrients and enzymes that give the body energy. I prefer to eat the bulk of my fruit in the morning so I can get all of the nutrients and energy to help me through the day. I like to rotate the fruit that I eat. My favorites are:
Organic Oatmeal is usually in my diet every single day. Oatmeal is a great source of soluble fiber. The fiber helps reduce the bad cholesterol in the body. I also like other whole grains like:
Barley – Hulled and Dehulled (not Pearl), Brown Rice, Buckwheat, Kamut, Millet, Oat, Quinoa, Rye, Sprouted Grains, Teff, Triticale, and Whole Wheat.
I like to add a little honey to my Oatmeal and also top with a quarter cup or so of frozen blueberries.
Caldera Greens Smoothie
Ever since I learned about some powerful Organic Alfalfa, Barley, Oat and Wheat grass greens back in 2010, I have made a frozen smoothie every single morning. The greens are grown in volcanic soil in Utah, USA and give the body incredible energy and nutrients. You can watch a video I made specific about the Greens on the webpage below:

You really can eat very well and have plenty of variety in your breakfast meals by trying some of the above suggestions. Your body will never miss the fat and cholesterol from the animal products. I am amazed that even though I woke up at 05:30 this morning, I am still alert and typing this latest blog post so I would not leave my readers stranded after bringing up the problem with Obesity in the last blog post. The next post will cover a healthy dinner meal.
