New Delhi : There are many opinions about breakfast, some say it is the most important meal of the day, but some people think it is much better off skipping it completely. Whether you have a heavy meal or like to just have a quick bite in the morning, there are certain things you may be doing at breakfast that are not advisable. 

To help you for not turning your morning meal into an unhealthy one, we've rounded up the worst breakfast habits that are just leading you to pack on those extra kilos.

Missing to drink water

If you don't drink a glass of water first thing in the morning, then is is not the best start. According to a study, drinking water before meals ends up in losing weight. It's no secret that water fills your stomach and those in the study felt fuller and ended up eating less during their meal. Plus, water helps boost your metabolism and gives you a boost of energy, as it helps keep your body functioning at its best.

Wrong type of yogurt

Yogurt is a healthy food as long as you're buying the right type. Going for a yogurt that has fruit at the bottom or comes with add-ons you mix in is nothing but a disaster. These yogurts are filled with sugar and starting your day off with that much of the sweet stuff is a no-go. Be sure you're going for plain Greek yogurt, or choosing an option that is low in sugar.

Egg whites

Egg yolks are actually packed with vitamin D, and one study even found a link between a vitamin D deficiency and excess belly fat in overweight individuals. So, vitamin D levels could help reduce fat. Plus, egg yolks have choline too, a nutrient that helps regulate your metabolism, nerve function, and brain development. So do not skip those yolks.

Choosing granola 

Granola is one of those foods that you would think is healthy, but no that’s not true. It's another option that is high in sugar and if you're adding it to yogurt, there's a good chance you'll end up consuming more sugar, which is a no-no for a morning meal.

Portion size

In the morning, we don't want to end up consuming more calories than necessary and if you we go for a heavy meal, there's a good chance your blood sugar will drop soon enough, and you'll be hungry again. So, we need to take care of the portion size.


It's no secret that vegetables are packed with vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and fiber, so don't be afraid of some veggies! Add spinach, avocado, and tomatoes to your omelets, or even toss some leafy greens into your homemade smoothie or you can surely go for a quick salad too. There really is no healthier way to kick-start your morning.
