If you’re trying to lose weight, breakfast is a great place to start altering your eating habits. A plate full of fried potatoes, bacon, biscuits, and thick gravy might taste good, but it’s not good for you. Even breakfast foods you might think are healthy — like yogurt and cereal — are sabotaging your diet. Avoid the following foods to stay healthy.
1. Frozen breakfast sandwiches
Don’t think you’re doing yourself any favors by skipping fast food breakfast sandwiches and sticking to what’s in your freezer. Most frozen breakfast entrees come pre-loaded with way more salt and sugar than necessary — and they aren’t very nutritious.
Consider making your own breakfast sandwich using fresh, healthy ingredients like whole grain bread and lean protein (maybe eggs, turkey, or both). You can even put the sandwich together the night before, stick it in the fridge, and reheat it on your way out the door.
