A low-carb breakfast can be incredibly beneficial to your health - not just for weight loss. Studies have shown that starting the day out with more protein than carbs can enhance mental focus, prevent fatigue, delay hunger, improve insulin levels, reduce sugar cravings, increase lean muscle mass, and yes - it can also aid in weight loss. That’s a lot of benefits to argue with, don’t you agree? Try out a few of these tips for making a low-carb breakfast this week and let me know what you think!
1. Alter Your Oats
If you’re an oatmeal fan (as I am), then one way to still enjoy them on a low-carb breakfast plan is to just reduce the amount, instead of eliminating them altogether. Use ¼ cup instead of ½ cup and cook them with almond milk and egg whites(or even chia seeds and coconut flour if you’re vegan) to thicken it up. It will make your oats super creamy, increase the protein content, and reduce the carb content at the same time.
