Natural Weight Loss
Breakfast is the basis of a healthy weight loss diet. According to James O. Hill, director of the Center for Human Nutrition at the University of Colorado Health Sciences Center, “starting the day with breakfast is an important strategy to lose weight and keep it off." Use the Food Guide Pyramid as a sensible resource for preparing your breakfasts despite whether you opt for foods that need preparation or whether you choose ready-made foods.

Whole-grain cereals without added sugar or fat are a good choice. Oatmeal is an excellent choice to start off the day. Oatmeal contains a special kind of fiber known as beta-glucan. Many studies have confirmed the positive effects of beta-glucan on cholesterol levels.

Oat bran provides about 50 percent more fiber, both soluble and insoluble, than instant oats, and it contains more protein. One-half cup of cooked oat bran provides 44 calories, 12.6 g carbohydrate, 3.5 g protein, 0.9 g fat, 6 g dietary fiber, 7 meg folic acid, 101 mg potassium, 131 mg phosphorus, 11 mg calcium, 44 mg magnesium, and 1.06 mg manganese.

Eggs are another excellent choice for breakfast. Research has demonstrated that starting the day with an egg can assist with reducing calorie consumption. The leucine found in eggs provides a weight loss benefit when dieting by assisting to reduce loss of lean tissue and helps with the loss of fat. People with a high blood cholesterol level should limit the intake of whole eggs to 3 or 4 per week as the yolk of a large-sized egg contains about 210 milligrams of cholesterol, more than two-thirds of the daily cholesterol allowance.
