Breakfast The unanimous verdict when we asked dieticians about breakfast? Eat it. "Don't forget about breakfast! It's important to start the day off right," says Lisa Cohn, a New York City nutritionist and Registered Dietician. "Instead of choosing a quick and deadly option at a fast food restaurant, try making yogurt parfaits. Yogurt can help you lose weight in a limited amount of time." What exactly makes yogurt so bikini-ready? It contains power-boosting protein that keeps you feeling full, and helps you build muscle, which plays a key role in burning fat (even after your workout!). Yogurt is also full of probiotics, which contribute to a healthy digestive tract, and bone-building calcium, which aids in proper muscle contraction for more effective workouts.
Whip up a tasty treat with a cup of non-fat plain Greek yogurt topped with a ½ cup of berries and a tablespoon of crushed walnuts or crunchy granola.
This non-cooked breakfast option will not only get you out the door in record time, but also has nutritional benefits. "Eating foods in the raw allows your body to absorb the maximum amounts of nutrients possible, therefore leaving you feeling full on less food," says Jenn Zerling, MS, CPT. "Most importantly, [when] starting the day with healthy breakfast foods, you are more likely to feel more energized and able to make healthier choices throughout the day," adds Megan Ware RD, LD.
