Healthier Breakfast Options - as part of the expert series by GeoBeats. The top five breakfast options for weight loss; it is really important that you focus on what is in the food as opposed to how many calories are in it. So what you want to look for for breakfast is that there is going to be protein in your breakfast. Some really good quick easy options for that is Greek yogurt. Greek yogurt is high in protein and that is what makes it different from all other yogurts. Other yogurts are the carbohydrate, and that is not going to help you with the weight loss. Low fat cottage cheese is another one. It is a great source of protein, again it is lower in fat, and lower in carbohydrates. Smoothies are a good option if you are doing it right. A lot of people use milk and fruit as their smoothie or a juice and a fruit, and it is lacking the protein. So you can make that smoothie just like you normally do, but add a scoop of protein powder. This can be whey protein powder or egg white protein powder that you can purchase at a health food store. Another option is a piece of whole grain bread with almond butter on there or sunflower seed butter. This is a protein with good fat, good fiber, and it is a great source of protein. So together they sort of balance each other out, the carb and the protein are there.
