Lose Weight By Eating Breakfast

September is National Breakfast Month 

Breakfast is the first meal of the day and the most important meal.  Did  you know, “The word Breakfast came about because it means breaking the fast after one has not eaten (fasted) since the night before”?  Moreover, multiple studies have shown that breakfast skippers have a higher body mass index (BMI) than non-skippers and breakfast consumption is associated with a lower body weight.  

Here are two of my favorite breakfast meals.

Egg McMuffin

  • 1/4 cup egg substitute
  • 1 whole grain lite english muffin
  • tomato slices

Pour egg substitute in a bowl coated with non-stick cooking spray.  Cook on high for 1 minute.  Meanwhile, toast english muffin.  Place cooked egg topped with tomato slices on english muffin.  Voila!  Only 135 calories and zero fat.

Old Fashioned Oatmeal

  • 1/2 cup rolled oats
  • 1 cup skim milk

Cook oatmeal and milk in a large mug on high for 1-1/2 minutes and stir.  Voila!  You may flavor with splenda and cinnamon.  Only 240 calories and 3 grams fat.


No time to spare in the a.m.  Here are some healthy breakfast choices you can eat on the run.

  • High fiber poptart.
  • Low-fat yogurt drink.
  • Banana or apple.
  • Instant breakfast drink.
  • Handful of nuts and raisins.
  • Cereal bar.
