3 Healthy Breakfast Ideas
For Weight Loss
If I were to name 3 best healthy breakfast ideas for weight loss, I would say ‘no breakfast’ is certainly the first, second and third. If you are interested in weight loss, you should even pay special attention in reading this article.
For those who have a habit of eating breakfast, this may sound unrealistic. In fact, the idea of ‘no breakfast’ is not only realistic, but also very healthy. I don't say this out of my imagination. There are four reasons to support this. Let me explain.
First of all, I know a lot of people who don’t have a habit of eating breakfast. However I don’t see these people having any deficiency in energy or low performance at work. In general, these are normal healthy people.
Second, according to Brad Pilon, a nutrition professional, a 24 hour period off of eating is very healthful. It helps you reduce calories without sacrificing what you like to eat and maybe even more importantly it stimulates your body to produce more growth hormone. Yes that’s right growth hormone, the same one you hear about the celebrities talking to ‘stay young’. Growth hormone has many anti aging benefits, and one of the most interesting being fat burning!
To do a 24-hour fast, you would have to skip breakfast and lunch, in case you are doing dinner to dinner. I believe any normal adult should be able to do this without much problem. Learn more about a 24-hour fast.
Third, for those who are looking to lose weight, the idea of ‘no breakfast’ is really helpful. It does not only contribute to reduce calories intake. If you make use of the time you eat breakfast to do exercise instead, you are going to burn up to 3 times as more fat as opposed to working out at any other time during the day. As you may know, food releases insulin which blunts fat burning. When you wake insulin is at its lowest allowing the most fat to be burnt. So if you want to lose weight, add ‘no breakfast’ to the top of your healthy breakfast ideas list.
Finally, I’ve read an article “Old Wisdom on Daily Meal Frequency, Why are you Eating so much?” written by Mike O’Donnell, who is a health and fitness coach. It was really inspirational to know that past civilizations including Roman and Greek, full of healthy, athletic, and intelligent people only ate enough to nourish their bodies - “Breakfast as a regular meal is little heard of”.

You may argue the world has changed. People in the past didn’t eat breakfast doesn’t mean we have to omit breakfast nowadays. You are right. In fact, there is no right or wrong between ‘eat breakfast’ or ‘no breakfast’. However if you are health conscious and looking for healthy breakfast ideas for weight loss, it’s certainly worth adding ‘no breakfast’ to the top of your list and give it a try.
