 croisaint momsfitnessheaven

Rule number one of a successful weight loss is to never skip your breakfast. Period. But something is not right. You follow the rule and have something every morning, you stay full for longer, the belly is happy but something is still wrong. Why you are not losing weigh and actually, your belly looks a little bit bigger, slightly swollen maybe. What the heck?


You follow doctor’s advice and eat something every morning. But what is your something? Are you just grabbing first thing on the go or stepping at local coffee shop to grab something from breakfast menu with your morning coffee?


You can have a breakfast or you can have the right breakfast.


Unfortunately stuffing yourself with any food won’t do. It will hurt you and ruin your diet.


The unhealthiest breakfast for waistline


  1. Muffin

muffin momsfitnessheaven

Eat muffin and you will turn into a muffin yourself. They may look tempting and seem to be on every single restaurant and cafes shops breakfast menu, but it is “evil” food.

If you eat muffins bought at shop there is a good chance they are gigantic. They look like you can feed whole family with just a one.


One large muffin is up to 600 calories!


That is only one muffin. What if you have something extra with it? You can easily consume your daily calorie limit in just one sitting.


Muffins are also packed with FAT.


  • there is NO PROTEIN
  • there is NO HEALHY FATS
  • there is plenty of refined carbs
  • there is plenty of white flour
  • there is plenty of sugar



“Eat muffin every day and you will grow your belly HUGE for 100%”


Here is some nutrient fact for you


1 blueberry muffin;


  • 609 calories
  • 288 calories from fat
  • 32 g fat
  • 125 mg cholesterol
  • 590 mg sodium
  • 71g carbs
  • 2 g protein
  • 40 g sugar

 2. Bagels

Did you know that eating one bagel equals eating 4 slices of bread?

Similar to muffin bagel is packed with simple carbs, white flour, sugar.


There is no good stuff like protein or fibre in it. Bagel is pretty much 100% carbs- refined carbs.


Fact! One bagel is equivalent of 16 teaspoons of sugar!

3. Pancakes

pancakes momsfitnessheaven

Yes, typical American style pancakes with maple syrup or bacon.

Homemade pancake quality would depend on how you make them. Are they: bought, made from a boxed mix, made from scratch or bought at local café?


They may be bad or really bad.


Pancake is a combination of flour- refined flour- butter, eggs and milk.


Let’s have a closer look.


1 buttermilk pancake;


  • 163 calories
  • 6 g fat
  • 23 g carbs
  • 4 g protein


With maple syrup the numbers are much worse. Now how many pancakes do you have for breakfast?

4. Cereal

cereal momsfitnessheaven

You can eat cereals the whole day with some milk or chocolate milk or anything that goes with them. One serving of cereal is sky high packed with sugar.


They are nothing more than empty calories, simple carbs and sugar. Some of the brands contain even up to 50 % of sugar. Even the healthiest version of cereal is still packed with it.

5. “Smoothie” – from smoothie shop


We have heard of them. Smoothies bought at smoothie shop have nothing to do with the real smoothie.

Did you know that average smoothie bought at most cafes contain as much as 85 g of sugar – that is almost 21 teaspoons of sugar in one cup!


What should you eat for breakfast then?


  1. Kefir instead of yogurts


Add kefir to your smoothie, to home made parfait, to overnight oats or to your salad- everywhere.


Kefir is made out from fermented milk, packed with good bacteria’s, enzymes and nutrients that will not just feed you properly, but will also boost your metabolism, mood and energy.


1 cup of kefir;


– 160 calories

– 8g fat

– 12g carbs

– 10 g protein

– 0g sugar

2. Organic Peanut butter


What about mixing 1 tablespoon of peanut butter with 1 cup of kefir, some cinnamon and one banana? You just made yourself the best morning smoothie ever.


Peanut butter is a great source of protein and good fats. It will definitely boost your energy, feed your muscles and keep you full for long.

3. Eggs

I am calling them secret weapon against fat. They are full of protein that will keep you full and well fed; and they will take care of your muscles. They also contain vitamin B (responsible for good mood and healthy brain)

After egg based breakfast you will be buzzing with energy.

4. Oatmeal

oats momsfitness heaven

Swap cereals for oats,  wholegrain oats. To stay full you need only 2 tablespoons of them. They are packed with antioxidants, magnesium, zinc, fiber. They are mood and energy boosters, will keep your digest system happy and your belly flat.
