Boiled fish or meat
Chicken breast, lean beef, turkey, rabbit, low-fat fish, such as hake or pollock, can also claim their place in the morning menu. For many, such food will seem heavy, and indeed it is strange to eat meat in the morning. But doctors recommend protein foods to those who are waiting for physical exertion, for example, training in the gym or hard work. After such a hearty breakfast, the thought of a snack will not visit you at least until lunchtime. Of course, if you follow your figure, these products should be on your plate in boiled form, without salt, sauces and spices, with a small amount of vegetables.
Cottage cheese not higher than 5% fat
Cottage cheese is a source of protein and calcium, which speeds up metabolism and helps to get rid of extra pounds faster. The popular saying “Cottage cheese in the morning is gold, in the afternoon it is silver, and in the evening it is kidney stones” is the best proof that you need to eat it in the morning. Doctors say that having breakfast with cottage cheese you will forget about hunger for a few hours. Of course, for your slim figure, buy a product no higher than 5% fat and without all sorts of additives. But you shouldn’t take absolutely fat-free: calcium cannot be absorbed from it.
If you just bored with cottage cheese, diversify it with fresh berries and sliced fruit, nuts or seeds. And remember that the curd mass, which has a lot of sugar, and sometimes palm oil, has nothing to do with a slim figure. If you do not want cottage cheese at all, replace it with yogurt or kefir.
Leaders healthy breakfast - cereal, especially oatmeal. Whole grain porridge will be useful, in the shell of which there is a lot of fiber, vitamins and microelements. It is slowly digested, gradually giving its energy to the body. therefore, hunger will not return soon. But it is better to forget about semolina. Yes, even if you do it with berries and other goodies.
It is best to combine porridge with proteins, for example with cottage cheese. So, in 2012, Steroids magazine published interesting studies: scientists observed two groups for 7 months: in the first group, they ate only carbohydrates for breakfast, and the second added proteins to carbohydrates. So, the subjects in the second group were less hungry during the day, and hunger hormone ghrelin was lower by 45 percent compared to those who consumed only carbohydrates. Weighing results also surprised everyone: for the 7 months, participants from the first group lost weight in aggregate by 3,5 kg, whereas from the second group - by 22 kg!

Vegetables for breakfast - great. Scientists have found that they must be at least 100 grams. Any vegetables, such as broccoli and cabbage, bell peppers, cucumbers, zucchini - whatever.

And remember, if you follow your kilos, then forget about salt, fried version and, of course, harmful mayonnaise and various sauces.
By the way, doctors say that there is no ideal vegetable. That he is good for weight loss, because it is low-calorie - only 15 kcal per 100 grams. In this case, the digestion of tomato energy will take much more.
Fruit for breakfast is a controversial option. If you add them to cereals and dairy products, then fine. But in the form of a smoothie - better not worth it. Nutritionists say that there is no fiber in juice and fresh juice, which is so necessary for normal digestion. Of course, they have vitamins, but this is not enough for a normal breakfast.

But I still want sweetie. And this is correct, because sugar rules the appetite, and the brain without glucose will certainly be hungry. Therefore, the place can be filled with the right sweets, such as berries or fruits.

And remember about sweeteners: there are many ways to arrange a sweet life for yourself without any harm to the figure.
