12 Of The Best Breakfast Foods For Weight Loss

1. Coffee is one of the best breakfast beverages for weight loss

Coffee lovers know of no better beverage to start the day. The caffeine in your morning cup of coffee helps to increase metabolic rate and burn more calories. Study participants burned an extra 79–150 calories in 24 hours after consuming 100 mg of caffeine a day.[1][2]

The caffeine in coffee has also been proven to help improve mood and mental function. Coffee is also rich in antioxidants, and a study has found coffee to be the number one source of antioxidants in the U.S. diet. The antioxidants in coffee have been associated with a lower risk of diseases such as diabetes and Alzheimer’s.

Takeaway: Skip the cream and sugar to avoid the extra calories. About 0.3 to 4 cups of coffee a day, depending on strength, provides the optimal dose of caffeine without the undesirable side effects.[3]
