Four breakfast tips to decrease your BMI and burn more calories
#1: Have a glass of water before breakfast
A simple glass of room temperature water is the perfect pre-breakfast appetiser. Drinking a glass of H2O as soon as you wake up will send the message to your body that it needs to wake up a bit and that you’re able to start giving it fuel.
#2: Forget breakfast foods
If you often skip breakfast simply because you don’t enjoy typical breakfast foods, it’s time you drop that excuse. Here’s the thing – nutrients are nutrients at the end of the day, so you don’t have to eat certain foods at certain meals. If you’d prefer last night’s roast vegetables or stir-fry more than a bowl of oatmeal or scrambled eggs, there’s nothing wrong with that!
