Breakfast changes for weight loss

My big challenge this past few weeks when it comes to weight loss has been breakfast. I used to tuck into quite a large bowl of muesli each morning, I knew it was full of sugar and not great for me, but I enjoyed it.

However, in the warm weather, with berries and other nommy fruits being easily available now I thought I’d switch it up and try for a healthier breakfast, something less sugary and with more good stuff in.

On the top right of the above image you can see the cat waiting to enjoy my original breakfast. And on the left and bottom right you can see my new look breakfast.

I’ve ditched the sugar filled muesli and am going for natural sugars with fruit instead, I’m making sure I have a banana & some dry oats too so I can keep going, and feel full, until lunchtime, and it’s working! I am not feeling hungry until gone midday, coming up for one or even half one now. Normally I’m starving at midday, or before!

I did try ‘overnight oats,’ I soaked them in yoghurt & a little apple juice over night but it really wasn’t for me, they were cloying and I didn’t enjoy them. However, with the help of the Slimpod Club Facebook group, I got the brave up to try them just raw, sprinkled over the top of my fruit and yoghurt. Nom!

The next step is to switch from flavoured yoghurts to unflavoured, is Greek yoghurt healthier? I’m going to try it, I’m really determined because I’m sure all that sugar that I was taking on every morning was making me crave even more sugar as the day went on.

So fruit and oats with some yoghurt it is, the coffee is staying! I don’t take sugar or milk in my coffee so it might as well just be water…really good water…!

    That’s a great positive change for breakfast. My understanding is that Greek yogurt is higher in protein, therefore healthier, but here in the US it’s more expensive. I’ve found it seems to have a thicker consistency as well, and is great as a substitute for sour cream in dips and other dishes.

      Thanks 🙂
      It’s quite cheap here, more expensive than fruity, normal yoghurts, but still not massively expensive fortunately. Will give it a go on my fruity, oaty breakfast!

    We have been having Greek Yoghurt and it tastes so good with fresh fruit. Small changes really do work well and I’m working hard on healthy breakfasts too at the moment. Great to connect. Angela from Daysinbed #MeMyselfandI

    Go low fat yoghurt or 0%, Greek is a little naughtier. If you really want a goal then make some kiefer…best of luck #memyselfandI

    I’ve been eating fruit & yogurt for breakfast quite often in the last few weeks and it has actually sped my loss a bit! I love low fat greek yogurt with it. Might try a bit of muesli for some crunch actually x

    I’m with you, overnight oats are kind of gross, but I love raw oats. I have natural, unsweetened yoghurt with mine. Took a bit of getting used to, but with the sweetness of the fruit and a sprinkle of cinnamon it’s actually quite delicious. I think greek yoghurt still has added sugar.
    Great change! I’m sure it’ll help take you closer to your goal.

      I’ll have to have a nose at the ingredients list on the yoghurt options in the supermarket!

    )% fat greek yoghurt is definitely healthier and less sugar. When my eating habits are bad I love nothing more than a huge sugary bowl of granola, but I like this idea of yoghurt fruit and oats. I think I am going to have to try this. Thanks for linking up to #memyselfandI
