Breakfast is the most important meal of day, hence the need for it to be healthy therefore making it easier to stick to healthy choices through out the day.

Whether you prefer eggs, yogurt, or oatmeal, getting a healthy breakfast sets the tone for a day of weight control and fewer calories overall.

In fact, research shows that people who start their day with breakfast make healthier choices and have a lower body mass index in general.

"If we skip breakfast, we'll make unhealthier choices at lunch. People who skip breakfast eat more during the day," says Emily Banes, RD, clinical dietitian at the Houston Northwest Medical Center.

This is partly due to a thought process in which people believe, incorrectly that if they don't eat breakfast, they can eat more at lunch or dinner.

The reality is that on a physiological level, your breakfast choices, or lack of them, can set off a cycle of cravings and blood sugar spikes that spells doom for weight control, so, it is simply better to start the day with stable blood sugar and ultimately fewer calories, courtesy of breakfast, says Banes.

Be sure to have healthy breakfasts so you can achieve your weight loss goals.
