A healthy start to the day is important to stay active and energetic throughout the day. Breakfast as the first meal of the day is often considered to be rich and healthy, but that doesn’t mean it should be calorie-dense.

Top Healthy Indian Breakfast Recipes for Weight Loss (30 Ideas)

If you desire to lose weight through diet then it should start with the most important meal of your day and that is breakfast.

A lot of my readers keep asking me on what to eat in breakfast to lose weight and I keep saying anything that acts as a metabolism booster is good for breakfast, which I think is hard to find.

But wait…

Before I could give you the list here are 4 things you should keep in mind.

  • Your breakfast should always be heavy
  • Replace tea with Fruit juices, Fruits and vegetable juices can help you to shed pounds quickly.
  • Your afternoon meal should be 70 – 80 percent of your breakfast.
  • Gradually you should reduce the food intake as the day progresses.
  • Make sure you have the last meal before 8.00 PM (well that’s a discipline issue, you need to pick up this habit if you want to live long).

Does this sound familiar to what others are saying… well they are right, but what they are not telling you is that you need to avoid Meat and Non-Veg at all times except Egg White when on a weight loss mission.
